UK HEADLINE TOUR
FEBRUARY/MARCH 2018

Genre-blending Manchester collective Y.O.U.N.G have today released their new single ‘Lazy’. The youthful five-piece kick back in the new single with chilled hip-hop beats and mellow reggae guitars alongside a bleary-eyed flow, rising into an infectious chorus – all combining to create an anthem for lazy people across the world.

‘Lazy’ follows the release of ‘Exposure’ in late 2017, which has had over 200,000 combined views on YouTube whilst its remixes entered the Music Week Club Chart Top 10.

Rapper Ben James said of the track, “Our whole lives people have been calling us lazy. The track plays on the idea of what we would do every day if we were as lazy as people said. It’s true everybody has lazy days, we are no exception, but overall the aim of ‘Lazy’ is to mock the idea that all we do is nothing.

“The chorus is written from the point of view of the patronising adult, whilst the rap verse gives a first hand view of what a lazy day would consist of. Even though the song is a mockery, we can’t deny that brews, candles and chilling are genuine passions of ours! Dressing gowns make an appearance in the live show, bringing the laid back bedroom vibes to the stage and adding to the tongue in cheek nature of the tune.”

The five-piece (Chez Davis – vocals/guitar, Ben James – rap, James Skehan – guitar/production, Tom Whitehead – bass and Graeme Smith – drums) have built a fervent fanbase across Europe with their cheeky genre mash-ups and extensive touring.

Y.O.U.N.G will be playing their first ever UK headline tour in association with Live Nation through February and March. The band will play five-dates calling at Glasgow, Birmingham, Newcastle, London and Manchester. Tickets are on sale now via TicketWeb.

BRAND NEW LYRIC VIDEO
‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’

ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE 
“OUR FAVOURITE SONGS RIGHT NOW!”
“Like the Strokes reborn as Queen super-fans – right down to singer Luke Spiller’s amazingly spot-on Freddie Mercury impression.”

THE STRUTS JOIN CHANCE THE RAPPER, ST VINCENT, NINE INCH NAILS, & SELENA GOMEZ IN TODAY’S ROLLING STONE PLAYLIST

Acclaimed UK rock band The Struts today announce a very exclusive headline show at The Garage in London, in celebration of their brand new single ‘One Night Only’. Taking place on Monday 18th September it’s going to be the hottest ticket in town as the flamboyant four-piece stride back across the Atlantic to play an intimate venue, ahead of their massive US tour with Foo Fighters in October.

Having just played to over 60,000 fans supporting The Who in Quebec to a rapturous reception, and today been included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s Playlist alongside some of the biggest names in music, The Struts meteoric rise continues a-pace. ‘One Night Only’ has set fire to American radio and looks set to be the breakout hit of the summer.

The newly-released lyric video captures the band in true rock’n’roll style, and is the perfect taster for their hugely anticipated second album, due next year. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 debut Everybody Wants.

The single has been greeted with rave reviews in the UK with Kerrang magazine devoting two pages to the band’s magnificent return and The Sun declaring, “’One Night Only’ is an anthemic and bombastic tune inspired by the glory days of British glam rock”.

Classic Rock claim, “The Struts continue their inexorable march to world domination with [their] effervescent new song… a typically huge chorus and bits that sound like Queen and little bits that sound a bit like Coldplay, machined-tooled for swaying audiences and drunken, communal singalongs”, whilst music blogs across the spectrum have been hailing the genius of the new single.

The Struts are
Luke Spiller, Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums).
