YOUNG THE GIANT UNVEILS 2015 TOURING PLANS
November 19 2014

Fueled By Ramen recording group Young The Giant has announced details for their first headlining tour of 2015. The month long run supports their latest album, MIND OVER MATTER, and will kick off on February 12th in Burlington, Vermont. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at 10am local time on Friday, November 21st. In other touring news, the band will close their incredible year with a full slate of December radio shows (see attached itinerary). For more information, please visit www.youngthegiant.com/tour. To coincide with the tour announcement, Young The Giant has released the latest installment of their “In The Open” video series – live, acoustic performances by the band shot in remote, natural settings - with a special reimagining of the album track “Eros.” Partnering with Esquire magazine on yesterday’s exclusive online launch, the video now lives on the band’s official YouTube channel and can be viewed here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8-zpNbZ8Pw. Following the Top 5 Modern Rock hit “It’s About Time” and album title track, Young The Giant is set to launch “Crystallized,” the third single from “MIND OVER MATTER.” The companion music video has already amassed over 800,000 views and can be viewed here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF5uMvCGUCM. “MIND OVER MATTER” has already proven to be one of the most exciting albums of 2014. Upon its release at the top of the year, the album made a Top 10 debut on the Soundscan/Billboard 200 chart and received a raft of critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and USA Today among others. The New York Times, in particular, wrote a particularly, glowing critique, raving 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” before going on to declare frontman Sameer Gadhia as “one of the great contemporary rock voices.” The band has supported “MIND OVER MATTER” with a number of high-profile TV appearances including performances on the famed outdoor stage of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, and TBS’ Conan,. Earlier this year, Young The Giant completely sold out their North American headlining tour which included stops at the Hollywood Palladium, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and a two-night stand at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Following standout summer festival slots at Lollapalooza and Firefly, the band served as main support on King Of Leon’s North American amphitheater tour. “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.” For more, please visit www.youngthegiant.com, www.facebook.com/youngthegiant, www.twitter.com/youngthegiant, www.instagram.com/youngthegiant, and www.fueledbyramen.com.
