Los Angeles duo Youth Code are raw, punishing, industrious electronics built from the seeds of hardcore and early Wax Trax. Ryan William George and Sara Taylor blend chaos with catchy dance undertones to create a sonic fury paralleled to none. Formed in 2012, Using all hardware to perform, Youth Code have already proven their path with being the first band outside of Psychic TV to be put out by PTV's own label Angry Love Productions, and today are announcing a full-length LP for the always impeccable Dais Records.
Showcasing 10 tracks of pure industrial mayhem, this groundbreaking duo are set to take absolutely no prisoners. Youth Code pays homage to the raw sounds of 80's early EBM blended smoothly with pop sensibility and chaotic hardcore, bringing back a largely ignored genre and rebranding it for 2013, with a new sound all their own. The LP contains re-recorded tracks from their sold out demo cassette as well as 7 brand new tracks furthering their rise as LA's most promising Industrial act. Fans of true classic EBM/Industrial look no further. To be filed with caution next to early Skinny Puppy or Front Line Assembly.
Additionally, Youth Code are set to hit the road in September with Philly dark-wavers Night Sins. You can hear the first single off of the LP, entitled "Carried Mask", and check out the tour dates, album art/info below!
