Gang of Youths set to take on the US and Europe in 2018
It may have looked like Gang of Youths were slowing down, but they’re set to have an even bigger year than last!
The band kicked off the year releasing their cover of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ song, “Straight to You” (which you can find here).
While Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have a truly recognisable style, Gang of Youths distinct sound reinvents the tune and completely makes it their own. The cover will be included on the Amazon Music Original playlist ‘Made in Australia’, which is available on Friday 9 March.
Riding high after an epic 2017, the five piece collective will be kicking off a mouthwatering North American tour, with their US TV debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday 12 March. The band will be playing several solo shows across the States, as well as the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
This will later be followed up by a tour of Europe later in the year.
Their sophomore album, Go Farther in Lightness, received widespread acclaim in 2017, winning 4 ARIA Awards for the Best Group, Best Album, Producer of the Year, and Apple Music Album of the Year. Let’s not forget they also had four tracks in this year’s Hottest 100, three of which landed in the top 10.
Tickets to Gang of Youths North American and European tours are in hot pursuit following their sell out national tour. They’ll be performing 20 dates across North America and 10 across Europe.
