Youth Code is finally bringing their chaotic mix of synths, industrial, noise, hardcore, and black metal down to Australia in April.
One of the best-kept underground musical secrets of the past few years is L.A.’s Youth Code. The music that duo Sara Taylor and Ryan George make is a noisy, harsh collision of nasty industrial, percussive synth stabs, body-slamming electronic beats, black metal sensibilities, a punk rock attitude, and a few hardcore sentiments. It’s wild stuff, to say the very least, and it’s has allowed them to work and tour alongside the esteemed likes of Deafheaven, Chelsea Wolfe, AFI, and many more.
Off the back of 2016’s gnarly ‘Commitment To Complications‘ record (found below), April 2018 will finally see Youth Code make their long-awaited live debut Down Under for a string of shows that’ll be dark and loud ravey and experiences all the same. The U.S. pair will also be appearing at the landmark ‘Dali Land’ Salvador Dali art exhibition in Perth, before taking on Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne afterwards for the rest of the tour.
Joining the crazed pair for their inaugural Aussie tour will be Melbourne industrial noise trio, Kollaps, who are still currently riding low all over the world off the back of their 2017 LP, ‘Sibling Lovers‘. Opening the tour package is the techno attack of Brisbane’s Rebel Yell, who has just released her new techno single, ‘Pressure Drop’.
Get your pingas and/or rave gear ready, friends.
