England’s South Coast pop rock band The Gospel Youth have announced that their debut album Always Lose will be released on July 14 via Rise/Velocity Records.
The album was produced by Romesh Dodangda (Kids In Glass Houses, Bring Me the Horizon, Twin Atlantic) and is available to pre-order here.
Referencing the new video, singer Sam Little says, “We can feel trapped within ourselves. It’s something I know a lot of people deal with, and for the video, we wanted to show something that, I guess a lot of us, have felt.”
Talking about the album, Little says, “Music for us has always given us hope and shown us how you’re never alone in what you’re going through and Always Lose is our story of the ups and downs that life throws at you and how despite everything, there’s always light after the darkness. This band has helped us so much and I know it helps so many other people, but too many bands shy away from serious stuff. We wanna be real. We want people to see how human we come across and realize we all get scared. You’re not alone.”
Formed in 2014, the five-piece has previously shared stages with the likes of We Are the Ocean, Mallory Knox, Deaf Havana, Hands Like Houses, and many more. In 2016, the band launched a campaign that saw them release 12 crowdfunded singles in 12 months, putting their future in the hands of their fans and opening up the opportunity to write month on month about live experiences as they happen.
