“A pop masterpiece with well-crafted songs, surprising arrangements and soaring vocal harmonies.” – The Wall Street Journal
“Had The Strokes come of age in the era of The OC and The Hills they might’ve sounded like this…you won’t find a note out of place.” – NME
“Rising Stars” - Billboard
Following a wildly successful week at New York City’s CMJ festival, Young the Giant is more than ready for the world to hear new self-titled debut, which is available digitally today! A physical release of the album will follow in early 2011.
Produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Shins, My Morning Jacket), mixed by Michael Brauer (Coldplay, My Morning Jacket) and recorded at Los Angeles’ Sunset Sound Studios and Kingsize Studio, the 12-song album is an arresting collection of bright, melodic rock that ushers in Young the Giant as a fresh and vital presence. Hailing from Newport Beach, California, “Young the Giant draws on its European and Middle Eastern ethnic roots to enrich its vivid, vibrant rock” (The Wall Street Journal). Young the Giant is available for purchase HERE, but fans can stream the entire album by liking the band on Facebook.
Frontman Sameer Gadhia recently took some time to talk to the folks over at MTV Music. Check out that interview HERE.
Having shared stages with Kings of Leon, Minus the Bear, Marina and the Diamonds and The Futureheads, Young the Giant is excited to be going back out on the road with Utah’s Neon Trees.
