Melting down and mixing up elements of pop-punk, hardcore, and metalcore, Massachusetts four-piece Four Year Strong come back muscular and energetic as ever on this five-song EP, the first new music from the band since the 2011 album In Some Way, Shape, or Form. (It's also Four Year Strong's first release for Pure Noise Records after cutting ties with Republic/Universal.) Go Down in History offers a short, sharp dose of the band's hard, guitar-based attack wrapped up in furious but melodic tunes like "What's in the Box?," "Living Proof of a Stubborn Youth," and the title song.
