As Lincoln metallers Blood Youth gear up to release their debut EP next week, they have today unleashed an exclusive stream via their label partners Rude Records. Listen here:
With the quintet channelling their frustrations and fears about life and an unstable future in the only way they knew how, that is music, by the end of 2014 the band had amassed a wealth of cathartic new material. The 5 songs snap and snarl at the heels of their collective anxieties, keeping their determination to continue peddling their art, above water.
The debut offering, ‘Inside My Head’ E.P, sees release June 22nd in partnership with label Rude Records (home of Zebrahead, Emery, Knuckle Puck, American Hi-Fi, Set It Off, amongst others). Recorded between Bandit Studios in Tetbury, UK with Jonny Renshaw (Devil Sold His Soul, The Elijah) and Celestial Productions in Wrexham, UK with producer Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, Homebound, ROAM), ‘Inside My Head’ is an unrelenting assault of punch-to-the-gut riffing and Kaya Tarsus’ impassioned vocals that both tear and soar. Brutally heavy yet deftly accessible, the material of ‘Inside My Head’ showcases its creators’ state of mind, striking a compelling balance between fury and vulnerability.
With this stunning first strike in the can and coiled for attack, Blood Youth are now focussing their considerable energies on the road. With recent tour dates with Silverstein and Polar and a performance at prestigious festival Download under their belt, further live activity sees them scheduled at Hevy Festival and on an extensive UK tour with Trash Boat throughout July.
