Youth Group To Support Get Up Kids Tour


06/25/2009
.
(Worlds Fair) Youth Group, the Australian four-piece who released their third full-length, The Night Is Ours, this past April, will have barely had time to rest from their three-month North American stint before theyíll head back across the ocean to support emo heroes the Get Up Kids on their 2009 Fall Reunion tour.

The fun kicks off in Denver on September 15, after which the two groups (plus Boston trio Pretty & Nice as the first opener) travel through Seattle , Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas, and Omaha before finishing up together in Iowa City, IA . Youth Group will then continue eastward, headlining shows in Chicago, Columbus, Pittsburgh and Hoboken (with more dates TBA).

Though The Night Is Ours is an album fully comprised of impressively memorable, melodic rock songs, itís live that the bandís musicianship and tight playing truly becomes more pronounced. Toby Martinís voice, even clearer and more emotional in person, is complemented by the controlled layers of sound his bandmates put down behind him. Thereís a lushness that, even in the sparser, simpler songs, remains, and helps to give Youth Groupís music an even greater resonance.
