Kill The Young

Kill the Young are three brothers - Tom, Dylan and Olly Gorman - descendants of 19th/20th century Irish immigrants who grew up in the countryside close to Manchester. Ranging in age from 18 -23 – they are, despite their youth, already one of the hardest working bands in the UK. And, based on the evidence of their eponymously-titled debut LP, they haven’t merely performed over 300 gigs, they’ve learned what it takes to move and shake an audience. The name is deliberately provocative, a statement about the current state of modern Western society and the pressure put on young people to grow up ...read more

Kill the Young are three brothers - Tom, Dylan and Olly Gorman - descendants of 19th/20th century Irish immigrants who grew up in the countryside close to Manchester. Ranging in age from 18 -23 – they are, despite their youth, already one of the hardest working bands in the UK. And, based on the evidence of their eponymously-titled debut LP, they haven’t merely performed over 300 gigs, they’ve learned what it takes to move and shake an audience. The name is deliberately provocative, a statement about the current state of modern Western society and the pressure put on young people to grow up quickly ....... and let innocence be damned. By eating into the time spent being carefree and young, society is effectively killing youth and snuffing out any possibility of rebellion or counter-culture. Conveniently for the smugly amoral corporate world, this self-same ‘demographic’ is also a highly manipulable consumer target. In keeping with their no-nonsense approach, Kill the Young recorded the album in just 20 days with producer Dimitri Tikovoď. The Trash Palace frontman has also worked with Placebo, Goldfrapp, John Cale, Alpinestars, Marc Almond.... Mixing is by Flood, one of the most influencial producer/engineers and remixers of the last 20 years, with New Order , Depeche Mode, U2, Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey and many more having benefitted from his sonic touch.

Musically KTY’s sound is a mosaique of transatlantic influences. They are as much the sons of US indie rock bands Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins as they are the heirs of the UK post-punk scene. And what they have most in common with all of that heritage - as well as with the broader palate of classic poprock - is choruses that get under your skin and stay there. Debut single Origin of Illness b/w Fragile is set for release in June with the album to follow in the winter. « hide
