Youngblood Hawke Announce Debut Album and Spring Headlining Tour

YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE will rouse rock ‘n’ roll from its slumber with the April 30, 2013 release date of their debut full-length, Wake Up, for Republic Records. Just in time for the record’s release, the Los Angeles quintet is also set to embark on a spring headlining tour of North America, which will include select festival appearances across the United States and Canada, and a stint at SXSW.

Their first single, “We Come Running,” has become a ubiquitous anthem in its own right.  With danceable cadence and a massive refrain, the song resounds with arena-ready energy. The group recently performed the standout track live on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, which you can watch here. Plus, its music video has got some real teeth, featuring an audience of sharks and the submersed band members. Consistently drawing attention, the clip recently surpassed 1 million views on YouTube/VEVO and counting.

In addition, YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE continue to draw critical acclaim from myriad outlets.  VH1 named them a You Oughta Know  artist for the month of March. Pop Matters described them as “maximalist pop in the best way imaginable,” while Rolling Stone wrote, “Youngblood Hawke’s grooves glisten on ‘We Come Running.'” Meanwhile, ARTISTdirect put it best declaring, “Youngblood Hawke have ‘next big thing’ written all over them.”

Wake Up to YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE this spring and don’t miss them on tour. You can also use the hashtag #YBHtour while the band is on the road.
