Birmingham noise-punk trio Youth Man announced they will hit the road in February/March 2016 supporting Cardiff crew Astroid Boys on a run of headline tour dates.
Commenting on the news, the band say: “Astroid Boys are legit punks! We’re no strangers to a racuous show but those guys are next level. We’re so pumped to be a part of this tour.”
Youth Man signed to VENN Records – home to releases from Heck, Marmozets, Milk Teeth, Moose Blood and the independent label established and operated by visceral punks Gallows – late last year.
A new EP is scheduled for release in Spring 2016 and will feature latest single “Pigs” – the video for which can be seen below.
The trio have recently been out on the road throughout Europe and the UK with German punks Adam Angst, KMPFSPRT, and Brighton band Tigercub. 2015 saw them take on an impressive run of festival appearances including Montreux Jazz Festival, a slot of the Lock Up stage at Reading and Leeds Festivals and a raucous set atWickerman.
Their latest EP Hill of Knives stacked up critical praise from Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, BBC Radio One, NME, Clash Magazine, Artrocker, Drowned In Sound, Rock Sound, DIY and many more.
Hill of Knives is out now and can be purchased here.
