Y.O.U.N.G have announced their first ever UK headline tour through Live Nation in support of their new single ‘Exposure’. The band will play five dates calling at Glasgow, Birmingham, Newcastle, London and Manchester. Tickets are available on O2 pre-sale to fans on November 8th and general sale on November 10th via TicketWeb.
To mark the announcement Y.O.U.N.G have released the lyric video for ‘Exposure’, which features them performing the track against a technicolour background.
‘Exposure’ leads with a funky, driving guitar riff before breaking into the sharp lyrical tongue of the band’s MC, Ben James, ahead of its huge anthemic pop choruses. The resulting sound rocks as if Loyle Carner was jamming with Twenty One Pilots, or Lethal Bizzle fronted Royal Blood.
Regarding the single Ben says, “’Exposure’ is about outing those who need to be outed. Everybody encounters liars, cheats and blaggers in their life who deserve to be exposed. In essence ‘Exposure’ is a final word to anyone who deserves not to be in your life.”
The new single, which has already been featured on John Kennedy’s ‘Exposure’ show on Radio X, is the follow-up to their tearaway debut ‘What I Gotta Do’.
The rap/pop rockers hail from seemingly disparate backgrounds as hip hop MCs, punk bands, soul collectives and dance producers The five-piece (Chez Davis – vocals/guitar, Ben James – rap, James Skehan – guitar/production, Tom Whitehead – bass and Graeme Smith – drums) are already turning heads with their exciting alt-pop blend of rap, pop and rock having developed a fervent fanbase across Europe from the extensive touring they completed prior to its release earlier this year.
Now hitting the road once again in support of their brand new single ‘Exposure’ along with European dates still to be announced Y.O.U.N.G are continuing to prove that the kids do indeed know where it’s at.
