Official press release:
With fans wildly excited for a return with new music and a new lineup, New Jersey rock band Youth In Revolt is thrilled to announce the release of their debut full-length album, The Broken, set for January 20, 2017 with Outerloop Records. After adding former Brightwell members Tanner Manoir (vocals) and Arvin Sarathy (drums) to an impressive lineup with original members Kenny Torres (Vocals, Bass), Alex Ramos (Guitar), and Chris Coletti (Guitar), Youth in Revolt are in their biggest year yet. The band released the first piece of music with the new lineup, a cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Something in the Way You Move” on September 21st, to great acclaim (check it out below). The tracks on The Broken were produced by Taylor Larson at Oceanic Recording, and vocals produced by Josh Buckner and Nick Matzkows at The Foundation. Here is what Kenny Torres had to say about the release:
“Writing The Broken was such an interesting experience. We took so many risks and tried so many new things, it was such a roller coaster of emotions. We came to the studio with an overwhelming 34 songs and a couple demos. After listening to them with Taylor Larson, we just decided we should just rewrite the entire record. During that process, we stayed at his house in Bethesda, Maryland and adapted to the city and the studio. Every day and night we spent writing, recording or learning the new songs that were coming together. Whether it was tracking screams at 5am, or tracking guitars at 5pm, almost every hour of the day we were working. It truly was the most fun, and creative experience we’ve had as a band. We expanded our sound, minds, and achieved things that seemed impossible and out of our reach.
The album is a collection of experiences we can all relate to, and each song is significant in it’s own way. However, the title track ‘The Broken’ is not only our favorite song but one that describes what we went through in the process of writing this record. We as a band were broken and had basically broken up but we’ve been able to piece ourselves back together and are now joined by our good friends Tanner and Arvin and original guitarist Chris. We couldn’t have pulled through and made this record without the guys at Oceanic Recording, The Foundation Studio, and and all of our fans who support us and give us the drive to continue to do what we love to inspire positivity and creativity. “
Youth In Revolt is a five-piece rock band hailing from Holmdel, New Jersey with musical similarities to bands such as Sleeping With Sirens and Of Mice & Men. With sinister riffs, heavy breakdowns, an array of catchy choruses, and the missing ingredient in today’s scene of cleanly sung verses, Youth In Revolt‘s sound is nothing to be considered forgettable. The band most notably broke into the scene touring alongside acts such as Capture the Crown, Ice Nine Kills, Palisades, and more. Following the debut of their cover of Lorde’s popular track, “Royals”, featured on Pop Goes Punk Vol. 6 and touring the Vans Warped Tour supporting their EP Love Is A Liar’s Game in 2015, Youth in Revolt have gained a dedicated following that has highly anticipated the band’s next move.
Stay tuned for more from Youth In Revolt as they gear up to release their debut album, The Broken, on January 20th, 2017 with Outerloop Records.
