The Young in Austin - 7/25/14
The Young are releasing their new album, Chrome Cactus, later this month (8/26) via Matador. They've already released its excellent single "Metal Flake," and since we last spoke they put out the video for a new single, "Cry Of Tin. Like "Metal Flake," it's another great dose of psychedelic punk and is keeping hopes high for this album. Watch the video (dir. Winston H. Case) below.
Late last month, we caught The Young in their hometown of Austin at The North Door (7/25) with Sun God. Pictures of that show, which was about a month after their pre-release show in NYC, are in this post. The Young will hit the road for a full tour after the album comes out which hits NYC for previously mentioned shows on September 11 at Glasslands and September 12 at Mercury Lounge. Since our last post, Degreaser were added to Glasslands and Charly Bliss to Merc. Tickets for Glasslands and Merc are still available.
