Rise or Die Trying, Four Year Strong's debut album on I Surrender Records. The album combines equal parts melody and mayhem; however, the true talent lies in the ability to use these parts to create one exciting, infectious whole. “We just play exactly what we want to hear,” describes Dan, explaining their combination of hardcore, punk, and pop-punk.

This album is by far the best of Four Year Strong. I do like their newer stuff, no doubt, but for some reason this album hits perfect in my opinion from start to finish. I love these guys.

After listening (roughly 841 times) Four Year Strong's Rise Or Die Trying I now understand all the hype and attention this band has been getting lately. FYS incorporate synth, breakdowns, and gang vocals into their owen version of pop punk which I believe make them stand out. If you like to rock out with your cock out then buy FYS and mosh away my friends!!!
Personal highlight : Beatdown In The Key Of Happy

I absolutely love this album. These guys have to be one of my favorite bands at this point in time. I've had their demo for a while and I was so stoked when I got this. The vocals alternate and sound great doing so. The synth gives each song that extra zing that fills in gaps. The sick guitar riffs and double bass combinations really set the tracks off in very vibrant yet catchy and hardcore-ish manner. This compact disc hasn't left my stereo since it arrived at my door step. It's fucking EPIC and I recommend it to anyone!
