Why when it rains does everybody stay in? Trapped in a room I’ll book a holiday But anywhere else it just don’t feel the same Only when everyone’s happy and the banter’s great I’m gonna buy a paddling pool So everybody stop being miserable We can use the central heating And grab the umbrellas to cover the seating We’ll have a few for a couple of hours And we won’t care about the showers If the summer ain’t here right now We'll bring it to the UK somehow. ► More from Youth Killed It: What's So Great, Britain?: Where Did I Go Wrong?: Popstar: Job Back: ► Connect on Social: Facebook: Facebook: Twitter: Twitter: Instagram: Instagram: Website: Website:

-October Headline Tour Announced

6th July 2018: Indie Punk Crew Youth Killed It is pleased to announce that their sophomore album, entitled ‘What’s So Great, Britain?’, will see release via Rude Records on 5th October. Lead vocalist and guitarist Jack Murphy reveals of the forthcomer: “Everything I’ve experienced over the last 14 months led to the creation of this record. Things that affect and impact the life of someone in their 20’s – from society to relationships. It’s been a mad 18 months for Britain and my personal life in general, so I really put my heart on my sleeve with this one.” As a prime example of what to expect, the quintet recently premiered new single ‘Great British Summer’ on Kerrang! Radio. Now available to stream here, Murphy explains: “It’s about the fact that everyone is so miserable in the winter when it’s raining and cold - like my next door neighbour who constantly moans about everything when he’s not outside watering his flowers. We're pretty sure that like 99% of Britain suffers from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and we pine for a bit of sun to cheer us all up. Don't worry you're not alone and that's why we wanted to write this song.” The record is available to pre-order here, featuring instant grats of the new single plus the two recently unveiled: lead single ‘Where Did I Go Wrong?’ (here) and title track ‘What’s So Great, Britain?’ (here).
Completed by Carlos Montero and Josh Arter-Taylor on guitar, Josh Thexton on bass and Ben Ford on drums, Youth Killed It say “it’s hard to pinpoint where exactly our sound comes from, somewhere deep within the recesses of our minds probably.” The members have an eclectic range of tastes, from funk to indie, to alt rock, blues, and prog metal. In fact, the band began life in Norfolk as metal-band ‘Under The Influence’, before reforming in 2016 with their current moniker and aspirations of “writing songs about never doing the dishes, hating their day jobs and having fun, not taking things too seriously in a world where everything is taxing and exhausting.” Signing with Rude Records on the strength of 2 EPs, saw the band release their debut album ‘Modern Bollotics’ in mid-2017.
For ‘What’s So Great, Britain?’, the Norwich crew initially began working with a production team before abandoning this to self-record at Crystal Sound Studios, with Murphy explaining: “Our sound just wasn’t where we wanted it to be, so Carlos and I produced it. It gave us more time and fewer restrictions. It really is from start to finish a band job: no extra writers, no producers, just us.” Capturing a raw and impassioned sound comparable to the likes of The Clash, Arctic Monkeys, and Blur, they return with more nostalgic 90’s riffs, stream-of-consciousness vocal deliveries, and charming hooks. Murphy declares: “Our sound has developed and matured into something I’m seriously proud of. I hope it resonates the way I want it to, as me and the boys put everything into it and as much as I love the last one, this one really is close to my heart.”
In support of the album’s release in October, Youth Killed It will be hitting the road for a UK headliner, saying: “It's been ages since we have toured as we have been spending our time writing and producing the album. We are so happy to play a run of shows again and bring everyone a brand new set! We have spent a long time making these songs come to life, so bring your dad dance and be in full voice for the 'daddiest' jams around." The currently announced dates include: 6th October – Manchester, Aatma | 7th October – Norwich, Epic | 9th October – Birmingham, Subside | 10th October - Bristol – Hy-Brasil | 12th October -London, Notting Hill Arts Club
