GANG OF YOUTHS ANNOUNCE 2018 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES

It's been a colossal year for Sydney five-piece Gang of Youths. The band released their sophomore album Go Farther In Lightness to critical acclaim, played to sold-out rooms and arenas across the world, graced the cover of Rolling Stone (AUS), and it all culminated in major wins at Australia's ARIA Awards last week. Gang of Youths came away with a total of four awards including Best Group, Best Album, Producer Of The Year and the prestigious Apple Music Album Of The Year. The wins follow an already impressive 8 nominations, cementing their status as one of Australia's leading rock bands. Now, the band sets their sights on North America. The band has today announced a run of 2018 dates that will see them play NYC, LA, Chicago, DC, Toronto and more. A full rundown can be found below.

Zane Lowe recently spoke of Gang of Youths on his Beats1 show, saying the album «absolutely blew my mind. I put it on, and I didn't stop, the entire time. The honesty, the poetry, the power of the production. The music. This is rock n roll. This is real spirited music right here. If we have our way, this is going to be huge, not just here in Australia, but everywhere. My mind has been blown by that record… blown!»

Described as a healing record, Go Farther In Lightness is a symbolic nod towards the optimism and kindness the band have found by surviving their various ordeals. This new record continues the work that has already so indelibly imprinted on fans across the world, and bears the scars of the band's painful history while seeking to draw new lessons from their struggle to endure.

Go Farther In Lightness came in at #16 on Uproxx's 50 Best Albums of 2017 list, they noted, «Go Farther In Lightness demands to be loved with a white-hot fervor that burns hotter than 100 suns, or disparaged as pretentious and bloated with extreme prejudice. The only crime is overlooking it.»
