Top selling Australian indie rockers Gang Of Youths play Manchester Sound Central on May 25 as part of their world tour.
Their debut record, The Positions, landed at number 5 on the Australian album charts (ARIA charts) and notched five ARIA Award nominations, including ‘Best Rock Album.’ Internationally they scored positive reviews from The Guardian, Stereogum, NME and Pitchfork.
They cleverly followed this record up with a new EP titled Let Me Be Clear in July 2016 which went in at number 2 in Australian charts.
They have horned their live act supporting the likes of Vampire Weekend, Manchester Orchestra and Frightened Rabbit. The band smashed a three show residency in New York playing two sold out nights at the Mercury Lounge followed by a performance at Rough Trade.
Gang of Youths have clocked up an impressive 10,000,000 plus Spotify streams helping them sell out some Australia’s most prestigious venues. They have also played festivals across the world including Splendour In The Grass, Southbound Festival, Laneway Festival, Primavera, The Great Escape, and SXSW.
