Australia’s favourite indie rock outfit Gang Of Youths fronted by songwriter David Le’aupepe and band members Max Dunn, Jung Kim, Joji Malani and Dom Borszestowski, have thankfully showed no signs of slowing down.
Following on from their critically acclaimed album THE POSITIONS and LET ME BE CLEAR EP, Gang Of Youths released their sophomore record GO FARTHER IN LIGHTNESS. Attempting to compartmentalise the past five years into 16 tracks is no mean feat, but the band come away with songs which encourage listeners to persevere as they’ve tried to, empathising with those who’ve brushed up against death, suffering loss every step of the way.
The past 12 months have been a remarkable success for the five-piece after gracing the cover of Rolling Stone (AUS), taking out a total of four 2017 ARIA Awards including Best Group, Best Rock Album, Producer Of The Year and the prestigious Apple Music Album Of The Year. The band also recently made their US television debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers and secured three singles within the triple j ‘Hottest 100’ top 10, cementing their status as one of Australia’s leading rock bands.
Having relocated to the UK, the band have been busy playing to SOLD OUT shows throughout the US and UK.
After their electric European tour and sold out North American tour, Sydney five-piece Gang Of Youths will return home this November for their ‘Say Yes To Life Tour’ presented by Handsome Tours and triple j. The 4x ARIA Award winners will perform at intimate shows taking place in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart and Fremantle.
