Young the Giant is an alternative rock band based in Irvine, California. Formed in 2004, the band was originally known as “The Jakes”. They got their big break when record company “Roadrunner Records” decided to sign them in 2009. They released their self titled debut album the following year, 2010. The current lineup of the band consists of Sameer Gadhia, the lead singer, Eric Cannata and Jacob Tilley, the two guitarists, Payam Doostzadeh, the bass guitar player, and the drummer, François Comtois. When the band first came together, the line-up used to consist of Ehson Hashemian, Sean Fischer and Jason Burger as well.
Recently, the band has gained popularity because the two singles from their debut album have been prominently featured in television shows with a large viewership. Their first single, “My Body” was a featured track in the CW show, “The Vampire Diaries”. The same song was also used in the show “Hawaii Five-0”. Their follow up single, “Cough Syrup” was performed in the immensely popular comedy musical show from FOX, “Glee”. This exposure has boosted their rock band status to the point where Young the Giant tickets are selling out within moments of being announced. Their iTunes sales have increased, and they have consistently been on the “Billboard 200” charts, both for their album and their single.
But before they had achieved this fresh new band status, Young the Giant was simply a group of high school and college students who came together to record some music. Their first big work of the time was an EP which they released under Ian Kirkpatrick, who also served as the producer. This EP was entitled “Shake My Hand”. Over the next few years some members left the band to find a career elsewhere, while some others joined the band till they had the current line-up that makes up Young the Giant today. Before getting signed to “Roadrunner Records”, they recorded some songs that attained a considerable amount of attention. They would play a song called “Texas Tea” which ended up being featured in “The Real World: Brooklyn”, a show by MTV. Another one of their early works, “Paid the Piper” was played on “The Beast” from the A&E network. In 2009, Young the Giant tickets were also sold for the music festival, “South by Southwest” in Austin, Texas.
Once they were signed, they spent their first year touring with Steel Train and the band, Minus the Bear. During this time, they worked on their album with Joe Chicarelli, the producer. They continued to play shows even after they had finished recording. They toured with Neon Trees, Marina and the Diamonds, New Politics and The Futureheads. Once the album was released, it was heralded as being in the top three rock albums of the year by Amazon.com. The album was also released in the UK.
The first single of the album, “My Body” charted on the “Billboard Alternative Songs” charts and reached number five. It was also a hit on the radio. They performed the song on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on the ABC network, and “The Daily Habit” for Fuel TV. The song was also featured on “American Idol”.
The same year, the band ended selling Young the Giant tickets once again for the “South by Southwest” festival in Texas. Later in the summer, they also played at the “Sasquatch! Music Festival”, “The Great Escape Festival”. They also performed for the “Later... with Jools Holland” show for BBC. In mid-summer, they released their follow up single, “Cough Syrup”.
Young the Giant finally got to perform on their first ever award show on August 28, 2011 at the MTV Video Music Awards. This appearance and performance catapulted them into the “Billboard 200” charts where their album reached number 42. The single “My Body” peaked at number 65 for the “Billboard Hot 100”. Following this success, they embarked on a collaborative tour with the band, Incubus. They also performed at the “Austin City Limits Music Festival” and appeared on “MTV Unplugged”, where they performed songs off of their album.
They kicked off this year with a new music video “West Virginia”. This will also be the year when Young the Band will begin its first ever headlining tour on a large scale. Looks like the band is going places! Be there to cheer them on.
