Young the Giant

Southern California-based Young The Giant has quickly established themselves as one of the most exciting new bands in modern rock.  In a glowing review of their current album “MIND OVER MATTER” (Fueled By Ramen),  the New York Times called frontman Sameer Gadhia “one of the great contemporary rock voices” and  raved how “…the group gobbles up bits of bits of several segments of rock history – prog-rock, boogie metal, Southern rock, soft rock, new wave, dance-rock, and more – and claims ownership of them.” 

In addition to further critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and USA Today, “MIND OVER MATTER” – which features hit singles “It’s About Time” and “Mind Over Matter” – has also proven to be a commercial success, scoring a top 10 debut on the Soundscan/Billboard 200 upon its release, entering the chart at #7.  The band has supported “MIND OVER MATTER” with a number of high-profile TV appearances including performances on TBS’ Conan, the famed outdoor stage of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!,  CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, and NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers.  Earlier this year, Young The Giant completely sold out their recent headlining tour which included stops at the Hollywood Palladium, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and a two-night stand at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom.   The band recently served as main support on King Of Leon’s North American amphitheater tour and performed on the main stages of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Osheaga, Firefly, Governor's Ball and many other major festivals.  “MIND OVER MATTER” is the follow-up to Young The Giant’s 2010 self-titled debut album, which featured hit singles including “Apartment” and the RIAA-gold certified smashes, “My Body” and “Cough Syrup.”
