It’s 2020 people, we made it. And what a year it’s been already. WW3, lethal diseases taking out the population, and for the first time Relentless Beats is promoting Summer Sad Fest, a new festival taking over Rawhide on July 19th. The festival features pop-punk favorites The Story so Far, All Time Low, and The Maine. Now if you’re like me you’ve been looking for something to fill the void ever since warped tour announced it would be ending back in 2017. Well, Summer Sad Fest is that bandage and we’re all getting healed baby.
One of the main headliners The Story So Far is a pop-punk band from SoCal that features members Parker Cannon, Kevin Geyer, Kelen Capener, Ryan Torf, and William Levy. They are known for their down-beat emotional tracks and somber yet sing-along-able acoustic songs. Here are 3 of them you need to memorize and sing along to at Sad Summer Fest on July 19th. Grab tickets here.
Probably the most iconic The Story So Far Song. This raw and personal acoustic track paints a picture of breakup and heartbreak. The memorable lyric “Don’t paint me back when I used to be golden” is so simple yet so powerful.
Roam is the oldest song on this list. This track was the main hitter on their first album Under Soil and Dirt and really showed the world what the band is made of. This song will get the crowd moving and open up some mosh pits.
3. “Bad Luck” – Original and Acoustic
One of the best parts of The Story So Far’s music is the acoustic versions they do of their own songs. “Bad Luck” which was already a banger, became even more personable and emotional when the band covered it on their acoustic EP Songs of The Story So Far.
