Four Year Strong - "Fairweather Fan"

Posted on October 26, 2011 - by Michael Duncan

Four Year Strong have unleashed a video for "Fairweather Fan." The song, which can be downloaded here for free, will appear on the band's upcoming LP, 'In Some Way, Shape, or Form,' due out November 8 via Decaydance/Motown Records.

The group issued the following statement about the track: "We wrote this song in honor of all of our REAL fans. The kids that have been there from the very beginning. The kids who love us for us, not for the gimmick, not for the fad, and not ONLY because we have breakdowns. We have always been a band that just plays music because its what we love to do. Not because we want money, or fame, its because we love it. So this song goes out to all those kids who call themselves a 'fan' until a band does something different, and then just hop on the the next 'cool' band.

"We have always taken pride in our fan base because it was so eclectic, so open minded, and so unique. This song is written in honor of you, and saying fuck you to everyone else. This is Four Year Strong. Rise or die."
