“what you get here is the visceral punk spirit alive, kicking and sounding fresh for the 21st century.”– Already Heard
WE’RE DELIGHTED TO WELCOME BACK TWO OF LAST YEAR’S SUPERSONIC FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS TO THE HARE AND HOUNDS APRIL THE 11TH. EXPECT A NIGHT OF STORMY AMPED SOUNDS AND DEMONIC DRUMMING WITH PIGSx7, GREY HAIRS AND THE EVER RAUCOUS ADDITION OF YOUTH MAN. TICKETS ON SALE HERE.
Boldly dubbing themselves “the loudest live band in the U.K.,” Youth Man stand in sharp contrast to the indie rock crooners. With their brand of punk leaning heavily toward early Californian hardcore, the band have refined their sound into an uncontrollable maelstrom of aggression that culminates and runs wild on stage.
Their Wax EP was recorded in just one session, giving indication of this band’s philosophy: to be as raw and frankly honest with themselves (and their own innate angst) as possible. Youth Man have achieved huge rock success on their own terms, whether people like it or not.
The start of 2018 saw Youth Man return with a bang – with a new record deal, a new song, and a bunch of tour dates.
The Birmingham band have signed with Alcopop! Records, and unleashed a new track called ‘I Don’t Know’. It’s taken from an upcoming EP, which will be announced later this year.
Label boss Jack Clothier commented on the signing: “Youth Man are a band we’ve been excited about since my partner, who basically oversaw the Birmingham scene back then, told me about them, and we’re absolutely delighted they’ve agreed to work with Alcopop! on this new EP. One of THE most exciting live bands around, this EP soars to new heights and will definitely tear your soul apart before patching it together way better than it was before. They were on an Alcopop! compilation back in, like, 2016 – and we’ve been chasing them ever since. Finally got ‘em. FUCK YES!”
