Born out of hard work, a strong DIY spirit and utter commitment, The Dirty Youth have amassed an impressive list of achievements that include successful UK & European tours with Korn, The Rasmus, Heaven’s Basements, Fozzy, InMe, and Reckless Love, multiple Download Festival appearances, seven million YouTube views, fifty thousand fans on Facebook, and the honour of playing alongside Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney at Hyde Park. The band have also racked up widespread acclaim for their debut album ‘Red Light Fix’, which secured extensive praise from Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Big Cheese Magazine, Kerrang! Radio and Rock Sound.
This year’s sophomore full length release ‘Gold Dust’ saw The Dirty Youth again pick up much critical acclaim. Kerrang! Magazine hailed the record as ‘Brilliant’, marking the album with a KKKK review, and Metal Hammer, Big Cheese, Powerplay Magazine, Amazing Radio and Kerrang! Radio all keenly supported the release, with Jake Thomson from Kerrang! Radio declaring the album’s lead single, ‘The One’, as his ‘Single of the Week’. The album has been a true progression for the band and one that illustrates their evolving style from metal punk titans to electronic fused rocksters.
