After performing as Limp Bizkit at last year's annual Halloween celebration, The Wonder Years are changing things up entirely for 2020's (virtual) extravaganza: they'll be performing two sets of blink-182 covers, taking things in a pop-punk route rather than nu-metal.

"The time has come to dig out your Billabong T-Shirt and jelly bracelets," the band announce. "Presenting 'The Wonder Years Occasionally Annual Halloween Extravaganza IV – This Time, It’s Digital'.

"We’re taking our Halloween Show to a live stream this year but that’s not the only change. This time for the cover set, we’ve split the six of us into two three-pieces and we’ll be doing duelling blink-182 sets, in costume and in character. And of course, after that, we’ll be joining back together for a full-band, full-energy Wonder Years set. The whole thing is happening on the Ruby Stage in North Jersey with a full lighting and sound package.
