Youth Mass are a four piece indie outfit from Meath who formed in 2010. To date they have released one EP Misanthropy and one free download Tony Don’t You Worry to critical acclaim (receiving much coveted stamps of approval from influential DJ’s such as Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio), Dan Hegarty (2fm), Paul McCloone (Today FM), Cathal Funge (Phantom FM), John Barker (98FM) and found themselves playlisted with Swedish giants Gimme Indie. The band were also privileged to have their song, Tony Don’t You Worry, appear on the sound track of Christian Slater’s 2012 motion picture, “Playback”.
After many festivals and prestigious shows including supporting The Naked and Famous in the Olympia Theatre, the band spent much of 2012 and nearly all of 2013 writing and recording their debut album, with lead single “Dream On” due to be released in February 28th, and the LP to follow on April 4th.
Youth Mass are celebrating their debut album release with a launch night on April 10th in the main room at Whelan’s.
