Critically acclaimed indie rock group Young the Giant have announced their 2019 Mirror Master Tour which includes a concert at The Wilma on March 6, 2019. Fellow California-based rock band Sure Sure will perform an opening set.
The group’s new album, Mirror Master, was recently released Oct. 12th via Elektra Records. Mirror Master includes recently released tracks “Simplify” and “Call Me Back”, along with the musing single “Superposition”, which recently hit #30 on Spotify’s US Viral Chart. In addition to the newly announced show dates, the band is currently touring this fall across the US with LIGHTS as main support.
“[Young The Giant] gobbles up bits of several segments of rock history — prog-rock, boogie metal, Southern rock, soft rock, new wave, dance-rock, and more — and claims ownership of them.” – New York Times
Describing the overall thesis for Mirror Master, vocalist Sameer Gadhia explains, “Within one single day, we’re all so many different people. Especially with the use of social media, we’re not just living in the now—we’re living on several different timelines simultaneously. A lot of the album came from thinking about how we have all these separations within ourselves that allow us to go about our day. At a time when everyone wants to put each other in a box—culturally, socially, musically—we wanted to show that there are a multitude of reflections inside everything. We don’t have to be a certain thing; we can contradict ourselves and show all these different sides of who we are.”
“[Young The Giant] carve out the kind of open spaces that seem to release energy from the stage and back into the audience…And the band itself tidily mashes up rock from all over the spectrum.” – Entertainment Weekly
Since the band’s 2010 inception, Young the Giant has made a name for itself in rock as the ‘thinking man’s band,’ winning over fans, radio, and press with their incendiary live shows, strong musicianship, and poignant lyrics. Following 2016’s critically-acclaimed Home of the Strange, Mirror Master promises to continue ascending into consciousness, though this time with a heavy focus on personal self-awareness and growth.
Young the Giant is composed of Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar/vocals), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and Francois Comtois (drums/vocals).
