Harrogate hardcore heavyweights Blood Youth have revealed the video for “I Remember“, a new single off their highly-anticipated debut album Beyond Repair, due out on April 7th via Rude Records.
Vocalist Kaya Tarsus explains about the track: “When I wrote the lyrics for ‘I Remember’, I was thinking about what it would be like to have a conversation with my younger self and what we would say to each other. I used to get very frustrated and I would blame myself for being unprepared for what life was throwing at me, it took a while for me to realise that in reality we all just go with the flow. Life is something you have to figure out on your own. Musically, a lot of our hardcore influences come out in this track, probably one of the heaviest riffs we have written, so we’re all really looking forward to playing it live!”.
“These songs are about how we deal with anger in the modern age,” reveals 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”.
To celebrate the release of their debut album, Blood Youth will be headlining three special release shows in April at venues across the UK, where they will be joined by Loathe and Holding Absence, plus a very intimate acoustic in-store at Banquet Records in Kingston.
