Young The Giant Announce UK 2011 Tour And Debut Album Release Details

Californian quintet Young The Giant have announced a UK tour in May to support the release of their self titled debut album which will be released on May 2nd.

The band, hailed by SPIN Magazine as key Ones to Watch at this week's SXSW, will follow their new single, 'My Body' (released April 25th), and self-titled debut album with six UK shows, starting with a date at London's Borderline on May 4th.

"Last year a number of artists (The Temper Trap, Local Natives) broke out from seemingly nowhere and turned into hot newcomers. With their sunny SoCal disposition and catchy pop, Young The Giant are that band in 2011" - (Artists to Watch at SxSW) - SPIN

Young The Giant will play:

Weds, 4th MAY - LONDON, Borderline

Thurs, 5th - LEEDS, Cockpit

Fri, 6th - MANCHESTER, Ruby Lounge

Sat, 7th - NOTTINGHAM, Stealth

Sun, 8th - GLASGOW, Captains Rest

Tues, 10th - BRISTOL, Cooler

This tour follows on from the band's debut trip to the UK in February, which saw the release of a limited edition single 'Apartment' through Young And Lost Club and high profile live sessions on XFM and Radio 2 (Dermot O'Leary's Saturday show).

Already becoming a very big noise Stateside, with radio stations picking up on 'My Body' in droves and an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's TV show upping the ante, the members of Young The Giant present a set of musical ideas as diverse and varied as their ethnic backgrounds. Friends since school days, and with Indian, Persian, British and French-Canadian heritage behind them, the band members share a sophisticated musical sensibility. Following opening slots for the Whigs and Kings of Leon at Chicago's House of Blues and a pit stop at South by Southwest last year, they signed with Roadrunner in the US.

Since signing, they have recorded their eponymous debut album with producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Raconteurs, My Morning Jacket) at Sunset Sound in LA and Electric Lady in NYC and toured the US, embarking on their first (sold out!) headline dates as well as shows with Cold War Kids.
