Overview

There comes a time in a young band's life when they hit that sweet spot where their voice, their sound, and their unity as a band gel perfectly. For Los Angeles-based indie rockers Young The Giant, that time is now. This trifecta of musical magic manifests itself on the band's third album, Home of the Strange.

Since the band's 2010 inception, Young The Giant has made a name for itself in rock as the "thinking man's band," winning over fans, radio, and press with their incendiary live shows, strong musicianship, and poignant lyrics. The band's 2010 self-titled debut, which reach No. 6 on the Rock and Alternative album charts, featured RIAA Gold-certified hits, "Cough Syrup" and "My Body," which peaked at No. 2 and No. 4, respectively on Alternative Radio. The band's sophomore release 2014's Mind Over Matter hit No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and spawned the hits, "It's About Time," which reached No. 2 on the Alternative Radio chart and the title track, which hit No. 15.

Young The Giant will be joined with special guest, Lewis Del Mar. The duo, from Rockaway Beach in Queens, NY, is the project of two lifelong friends who have crafted a sound as challenging as it is comforting. Their sonic hybrid blends barefaced bedroom recordings of acoustic guitars and soulful vocals over a rich soundscape of complex live and sampled percussion. Their debut EP is complex and intriguing, keeping the listener peering curiously around every corner to get a glimpse of what's next.
