The Young

"The Austin, TX quartet known as The Young have kept a somewhat shadowy profile since their inception in 2007. Though Guitarist/vocalist Hans Zimmerman successfully morphed a home recording venture into a full-fledged, elite punk unit with the additions of bassist Jason Costanzo, guitarist Kyle Edwards and drummer Ryan Maloney, the band underwent a stylistic shift shortly after the release of the first two songs (for Chicago's Criminal IQ and Austin's Super Secret respectively). With little regard for public reception, The Young would soon opt for something far more experimental in nature. On the heels of a 2010 appearance on Matador's 'Casual Victim Pile' Austin compilation, the band would record an astonishing debut full-length for Mexican Summer - The 'Voyagers Of Legend' LP."

The Young’s second full-length album, ‘Dub Egg’, was released by Matador on May 8. 

Check out the album’s first song, “Livin’ Free”.

The Young's next show is on Sunday, August 26th
at the KVRX End of Summer Concert at the Parish
