The Wonder Years at Webster Hall in 2015 (more by Mimi Hong)

The Wonder Years released one of our favorite albums of last year, No Closer to Heaven, and this year singer Dan Campbell released an EP with his solo project Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties. We asked Dan to make us a list of his 10 favorite albums of the year, and he sent one that includes veterans like Conor Oberst, Taking Back Sunday and Kevin Devine, newcomers like Pinegrove and Camp Cope, some more popular year-end list picks like Frank Ocean and Chance the Rapper, and more. Check out his full list below.

The Wonder Years are also touring Europe in 2017 with PUP and Tiny Moving Parts. All tour dates are listed below.
