About Blood Youth:

Following critically acclaimed EPs ‘Inside My Head’ and ‘Closure’, Blood Youth’s debut full-length ‘Beyond Repair’ sees the trio expand their arsenal across an album. Buy it here.

“These songs are about how we deal with anger in the modern age,” explains singer Kaya Tarsus. “When I was writing the lyrics I became fascinated with heartbreak and how everybody deals with this trauma in their own way. Many tend to numb the pain in an attempt to forget, instead of facing it head on, this is something I am guilty of myself. We were aiming to create something very aggressive but very real. With Beyond Repair, I believe we have achieved just that”. 

Blood Youth began life in late 2014, intent on channeling their collective fears and frustrations about unstable futures the only way they knew how: into music. Prior to the full-length album, the band had released two EPs: ‘Inside My Head’ (2015) and ‘Closure’ (2016), each showcasing the band’s talent for striking a compelling balance between fury and vulnerability.

Since their inception, Blood Youth have focused considerable energies on the road, with stints throughout Europe supporting Silverstein, Every Time I Die, While She Sleeps, Architects and Beartooth under their belts, in addition to two UK headliners. They have also amassed festival slots at the likes of Download, Groezrock, Slam Dunk, Hevy, Camden Rocks, Ghostfest, Y Not, Destruction Derby, Butserfest and 2000 Trees.
