Today, the New Jersey rock outfit Youth in Revolt dropped a brand new track off the album, titled “Don’t Wait For Me.” The song, now available for instant download and streaming, comes shortly after the band announced their highly anticipated debut full-length, The Broken, to be released on February 17, 2017 with Outerloop Records. Musically, “Don’t Wait for Me” is an ultra-catchy and dynamic medley of rock sensibilities, with a heartfelt message to be sent back home from the road. Vocalist, Tanner Allen explains:
“As a touring musician, you have to leave your home all the time, and for a very long time sometimes. You go months without seeing your friends, family, significant other, and other important people in your life. “Don’t Wait For Me” is about the struggle for those people that care about you immensely and how much it hurts them when you leave all of the time.” – Tanner Allen
Youth in Revolt is a five-piece rock band hailing from Holmdel, New Jersey with musical similarities to bands such as Sleeping With Sirens and Of Mice and Men. With sinister riffs, heavy breakdowns, and an array of catchy choruses, Youth In Revolt’s sound is nothing to be considered forgettable. After adding former Brightwell members Tanner Allen (vocals) and Arvin Sarathy (drums) to an impressive lineup with original members Kenny Torres (Vocals, Bass), Alex Ramos (Guitar), and Chris Coletti (Guitar), Youth in Revolt are in their biggest year yet. The band released the first piece of music with the new lineup, a cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Something in the Way You Move”on September 21st, to great acclaim. The band most notably broke into the scene touring alongside acts such as Capture the Crown, Ice Nine Kills, Palisades, and more. Following the debut of their cover of Lorde’s popular track, “Royals,” featured on Pop Goes Punk Vol. 6 and touring the Vans Warped Tour supporting their EP Love is a Liar’s Game in 2015, Youth in Revolt have gained a dedicated following that has highly anticipated the band’s next move.
