Next Year are a 3 piece pop punk/punk rock band from Leicester, UK. The band has recently dropped, on June 1st 2018, their exciting new summer anthem “Ben Wilson”.
Following the successful release of their debut EP “Resolutions” in January 2018, the band wrote “Ben Wilson” about the person who got them started in the first place. So what’s so unique about the song? Despite its summery, nostalgic vibes and catchy melodies, the lyrics are made up of stories and quotes by Ben Wilson himself which frontman James Brown has pieced together into a song.
So Who is Ben Wilson? He’s a long term friend of each band member. Before the band started, Alex and James attended Ben’s 21st birthday where the idea for Next Year came around.
