GANG OF YOUTHS

(Australia)


The holiness of love, the chaos and rapture of surviving against all odds, these are what drive Gang of Youths. With lyrics drawn from some of the most miserable life experiences available to humanity, Gang of Youths drag the beauty out of everything from hell to high heaven. Gang of Youths debut album The Positions (2015) was born out of the trauma and regret of frontman Dave Le’aupepe’s soon-to-be wife at the time being diagnosed with lung cancer. But it was the follow-up, and now critically acclaimed album, Go Farther In Lightness (2017), that has put the band on the map internationally. Following its release, Gang of Youths went on to win four ARIA’s, land three songs in the top ten of Triple J’s Hottest 100 in 2017, tour the world extensively with Mumford & Sons and Foo Fighters, perform at Rock Werchter, Pinkpop, Austin City Limits, Boston Calling, plus a triumphant headline slot at St Jerome’s Laneway Festival.
