Island Def Jam's Young Love has always danced to the beat of a different drum. Set to pound the pavement with intricate beats, captivating synth lines, clap tracks, and choruses that will stick in your head like glitter on glue, Young Love is touring behind their recent release "One Of Us", which dropped on April 28th. The band recently performed at Spaceland with The Henry Clay People and San Diego's own Swim Party, and performed the next night at their album release party on April 28 at Whiskey A Go Go. They're playing Bamboozle and a Bowery Ballroom stop on June 2 before wrapping the 24 date tour on June 6th at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago. The band is performing tomorrow night at Porter's Pub at UCSD, but we've just added a special X1FM Open Door session that is free and all ages at the studio from 6-7 pm and we want all of you who can to make it down to welcome this talent to our fine city.
Dan Keyes, the front man and mastermind behind Young Love, spent his formative years making music. A songwriter at heart he was penning tunes at 11 and his first band, Recover was quickly snatched up by Fueled By Ramen. In 2005 Recover went on hiatus and Keyes veered off on his own, hopping from coast to coast and finally settling in New York with just a few suitcases and some demos. The new material was far from what he had created with Recover and his new project, Young Love, was born. With the release of their Island Def Jam debut, Too Young To Fight It, Young Love was an instant hit and could often be found on the road playing sold out shows across North America, participating in heavily buzzed about gigs at major festivals like SXSW, and heading overseas to Europe to play for enthralled fans.
You can see the band for free at X1FM Open Door, off the 5 & Mile of Cars Way, behind the Denny's near the In-N-Out.
