Ohio''s best kept secret. On their second full length album, the Way of the Dinosaur, the Story Changes deliver an emotionally charged and energetic effort molding modern influences like Jimmy Eat World with past loves Jawbreaker, Seaweed, and Quicksand, among others. Produced by Jamie Woolford(the Stereo, Let Go, Man Alive, the Format), the album captures the energy of the band''s live show while still bringing the song''s strong melodies to the forefront. After spending the better part of two years on the road supporting their debut album "Last Night a Rock Band Saved My Life", the band cites life on the road as not only an influence lyrically, but also in the overall tone and direction of the new album. Singer/guitarist Mark McMillon notes:
"During the touring for the last album, we noticed that we always tend to play the more aggressive songs live and the more straight forward pop songs from our last album weren''t making their way into the set. When we started putting together songs for Dinosaur, we decided that we wanted a slightly heavier record that was primarily based on how we sound live". The end result is a smart and edgy pop record highlighted with honest sincerity.
Since forming in early 2003, the Story Changes has worked hard with lengthy and consistent touring. They''ve done dates alongside Motion City Soundtrack, Hawthorne Heights, Limbeck, Roses are Red, Hit the Lights, and Reggie and the Full Effect amongst others, as well as dates on the Van''s Warped tour in 2006 and 2004.

â€The Way of the Dinosaur is up beat and catchy like it''s predecessor, Last Night a Rock Band Saved My Life, but it overall rocks harder and rawer.â€ - Dayton Daily News
