If the name of your album is a quote from “Jaws”, if you use a sample from “Anchorman” in one of your songs, if you have a song called “Hey McFly” and if you cover Youth Of Today and Descendents, you’ve already got my sympathy right from the get go.

While nineteen songs might seem a little much for one full-length, you should know this isn’t so much a regular full-length but more of a discography of the band up to this point including the “So Much Promise” 7-inch, an old demo, eight new songs and the abovementioned covers.

Years From Now is a Florida-based outfit and when they aren’t picking oranges or helping senior citizens cross the street, they like to play positive melodic hardcore in the same vein as Gorilla Biscuits or CIV. And it needs to be said, they do a great job on “We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat”. So if you like to listen to “Start Today” while completing your morning calisthenics routine, why not pop in a little Years From Now instead every now and again?

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
