Rap-Pop Rockers Y.O.U.N.G Bring UK Tour To Newcastle

Rap-Pop rockers Y.O.U.N.G are heading to Newcastle as part of their first ever UK headline tour.

The Lazy Tour will see the band play Newcastle’s Cluny 2 on Friday March 2.

Tickets are on sale now from www.ticketweb.co.uk or by clicking HERE.

Y.O.U.N.G are already turning heads with their exciting blend of alt-pop, rap and rock having developed a fervent fanbase across Europe where they toured earlier this year.

Chez Davies (vocals and guitar) said: “We can’t wait to get out on the road. The Lazy Tour gives us the chance to widen our audience and hopefully pick up new fans along the way.

“This is an amazing time for us. We’re working hard and are determined this is just the start of something very exciting.”

To mark the tour announcement Y.O.U.N.G have released the video for recently released new single Exposure.

Exposure leads with a funky, driving guitar riff before breaking into the sharp lyrical tongue of the band’s MC, Ben James, ahead of its huge anthemic pop choruses. The resulting sound rocks as if Loyle Carner was jamming with Twenty One Pilots, or Lethal Bizzle fronted Royal Blood.

Speaking about the single, rapper Ben said: “Exposure is about outing those who need to be outed. Everybody encounters liars, cheats and blaggers in their life who deserve to be exposed.

“In essence Exposure is a final word to anyone who deserves not to be in your life.”

The new single, which you can watch HERE, has already featured on John Kennedy’s Radio X ‘Exposure’ show and is the follow-up to their tearaway debut ‘What I Gotta Do’.

The rap-pop rockers hail from seemingly disparate backgrounds as hip hop MCs, punk bands, soul collectives and dance producers.

The five-piece are Chez Davis – vocals/guitar, Ben James – rap, James Skehan – guitar/production, Tom Whitehead – bass and Graeme Smith – drums.
