With the breakout success of their self-titled 2010 debut album and widespread
acclaim for their exhilarating live shows, Young The Giant has quickly established itself as
one of the most exciting new bands to come out of Southern California in recent memory.
For their highly anticipated second album Young The Giant enlisted Grammy-
nominated producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen - known for his work with such diverse artists
as Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Paramore, and M83. Featuring the electrifying lead single “It’s
About Time,” the collection of songs finds the young band challenging themselves both
lyrically and musically. This sophomore release follows the band’s eponymous debut
which featured singles such as “Apartment” and the RIAA gold certified hits, “My Body” and
“Cough Syrup.” “My Body” was a top 5 hit at Alternative radio and closed 2011 as the year’s
fifth most-played song at the format. “Cough Syrup” drew even greater success, peaking at
#2 at Alternative, and enjoying crossover chart success at both Hot AC and Triple A radio.
Both tracks remain in regular rotation as staples at radio outlets nationwide.
In addition to its popular success, “YOUNG THE GIANT” also drew reams of critical
acclaim from outlets such as SPIN, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal which
hailed the album as “a pop masterpiece with well-crafted songs, surprising arrangements
and soaring vocal harmonies.” “YOUNG THE GIANT” also received rare applause from
British musical icon Morrissey, “Every three thousand years, a band comes along who
restore that precious component of faith.”
Young The Giant spent much of 2011 and 2012 traveling the globe, with sold out
headline tours, and show-stopping appearances at such festivals as Bonnaroo, Austin City
Limits, and Lollapalooza. A dynamic and distinctive live act, the band also made a range of
high profile TV performances, spanning ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and NBC’s TODAY and
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to 2011’s MTV Video Music Awards and their own edition
of MTV’s Unplugged.
