Following the release of the blistering single 'Poison Drum', which placed 3rd in the prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition, Sydney-based band GANG OF YOUTHS have been holed up in the studio putting the finishing touches to their debut album - expected for release in March 2015 through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
Working with producer Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Titus Andronicus) and Mixer's Peter Katis (The National, Frightened Rabbit) and Chris Collins (Tigertown), 'Benevolence Riots' is a fresh cut straight from these sessions; vibrant and energetic yet with a deep resonance lyrically.
The track also features guest backing vocals from budding Sydney chanteuse Montaigne. The collaboration came about after she attended one of the bands shows. They immediately connected, and 'Benevolence Riots' is the result. Stereogum premiered the track by calling the band "bold-yet-brooding music akin to Alligator-era, the National"
GANG OF YOUTHS have gained a reputation across the globe for their chaotic-yet-captivating live shows that keep the audience on high-alert from the moment they hit the stage. With their foot placed firmly on the gas pedal, the band are starting the new year by bringing the 'Benevolence Riots' tour to Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney. Don't miss your chance to see GANG OF YOUTHS as they rip though the east coast.
