NORTH AMERICAN TOUR ALSO ANNOUNCED TODAY
PERFORMING AT NXNE THIS SATURDAY AT YONGE & DUNDAS SQUARE
12 June 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Today, Yungblud shares the video for “Psychotic Kids”, a new song from his forthcoming full-length debut, 21st Century Liability via Locomotion/Geffen Records/Unviersal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The video, directed by Adam Powell (The 1975, Pale Waves) can be viewed HERE.
“I wanted to create something you can’t ignore,” said Dominic Harrison (Yungblud). “I miss videos that are theatrical. Growing up, I was obsessed with the visuals of artists like Bowie, Lady Gaga, The Beastie Boys, and Marilyn Manson.
“Psychotic Kids” is, in Harrison’s own words, a song about “people with old ideologies trying to hospitalize the younger generation’s way of thinking—treating them almost like an experiment. Our mental health is questioned because there is fear to adopt ‘new’ ways of thinking. People are always afraid of things they don’t understand and instead of confronting fear, it’s so much easier to pass it off as insanity.”
Today, Yungblud also announced his North America tour which features a Toronto show on October 21 at The Drake Hotel. Tickets go on sale this Friday and can be purchased at https://www.yungbludofficial.com/. This coming Saturday, June 16, Yungblud will be playing the NXNE festival in Toronto at Yonge & Dundas Square with Lights and CHVRCHES.
