Blitz Kids have been announced as the main support on Young Guns forthcoming UK tour that kicks off in Oxford on Friday 27th March. Blitz Kids will join Young Guns on nine of the dates, and will wrap up their run in Liverpool on the 6th April.
This month, the band also announced the next single from their hotly tipped album The Good Youth is Keep Swinging. They also premiered the video on YouTube, and it can be viewed above. The Keep Swinging video, directed by Shane Drake (Paramore, Fall Out Boy), was filmed in LA and features Brock O’Hurn, the American Instagram star.
Ahead of the Young Guns dates, Blitz Kids will visit the US for some highly anticipated shows, including four gigs at SXSW Festival.
Since the release of their Red Bull Records debut The Good Youth, Blitz Kids have become one of the UK’s most buzzed-about new bands. They have toured with All Time Low, Mallory Knox, Taking Back Sunday and more, played festivals like Download, British Summer Time and Sonisphere, picked up some great airplay on Radio 1, and appeared on Matt Edmondson and Phil & Alice’s Radio 1 shows. The British four piece have also appeared and performed on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. Last Summer, they were nominated for a Kerrang Award for Best British Newcomer.
