April 3, 2017 |



US post-hardcore band Youth In Revolt recently released debut album The Broken on Outerloop Records and completed their first headline tour across the US. We asked guitarist Chris Coletti to take on our A-Z challenge.

A song that made you want to make music?

Too many to name! But the first song I ever learned on guitar was "Pretty Handsome Awkward" by The Used.

Best rider you've ever had? 

A 15 passenger van was what we used on our last tour.

Craziest moment your experienced in the band?

Too many to name, for sure. getting to see our new record "The Broken" in FYE was pretty cool.

Deepest lyrics one of your songs features?

"I couldn't help you escape your demons & now I'm stuck here picking up the pieces." from Not Giving Up always hits me hard.

Easiest song you wrote?

"Alright" is definitely the easiest song, if you mean instrumentally.

Favourite song in your set?

I really love playing The Broken live. So much energy! that, or Love Is a Liar's Game.

Guest you'd most like to feature on one of your records?

Kellin Quinn!

Hardest thing about being in a band?

The lack of comfort while on the road. going days without showers and proper food can get old pretty quick haha.

Interesting fact about one of your members?

Arvin is a really good magician.

Jokes you have in the band?

There's an entire archive of inside jokes that we just continuously cycle through on a regular basis. It never ends lol.

Key to writing a song?

Don't overthink it & don't get discouraged! sometimes I get kinda mad at myself because I can't think of a solid riff or a good lyric but once I take a break and listen with fresh ears, I usually like what I hear. Believe in what you're writing & let it come naturally.

Longest distance you've traveled to play a show?

I think the farthest date on our last tour was in Nashville, TN!
