You Blew It

You Blew It!'s new record, Keep Doing What You're Doing, which came out this week via Topshelf, is one of the more buzzed about emo records since all this talk of "emo revival" exploded onto the internet, and for good reason. Their last LP, 2012's Grow Up, Dude, was pretty in line with all the "twinkly" emo that made up most of this "revival," but KDWYD feels reactionary to that, packing a more aggressive, "rock" style punch. The band, and their producer Evan Weiss (of Into It. Over It., Their/They're/There and many others), shed some light on that in a new studio interview video that makes its premiere in this post. The band talk about their more straightforward rock influences (Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World), and the whole thing is pretty revelatory if you've been itching to know more about this record. There's some clips of them recording in there too. Check it out below.

You Blew It! bring their tour with Prawn and Crying to NYC on February 8 at Shea Stadium with Living Room.

Evan Weiss also brings his Into It. Over It. tour with The World Is A Beautiful Place and A Great Big Pile of Leaves to NYC on February 21 at Bowery Ballroom with LVL UP. Tickets for that show are still available.

I'm sure it won't be long until that smiling dude's massive teeth and gums go solo. They're already looking pretty inflated.

They look like they would spend the first 5 minutes of a gig thanking their parents and management team

track 6 intro is a lot better when you blow farts to it.

Nice comments from all you guys in the middle of the day. What, your shift at the 7-11 doesn't start until later this evening?

now that you've made such a funny, original critique of my life, I'll never troll again. i'm sorry. now, pass me that salt-lick!

They know their instruments. Too bad they're not making anything that wasn't already popular in 1998 and hasn't since died and overdue death.

Wow,such great comments... Thanks to everyone involved with the documentary and making of the album. Definitely the best overall You Blew It album so far. I don't see anything wrong with the fact that the sound resembles other emo bands from the past. Plenty of other genres out there where bands sound similar...

I'll still always like their first EP the best, but there isn't a single song these guys have written that I don't like. Such a great band, and these comments are beyond dumb.
