NEWS: Blood Youth get heavy with “Iron Lung”!

Wasting no more time on Costa Del Sofa, Blood Youth have announced that they are at the starting gate and raring to go like a Dungeon Whippet. Having announced themselves with the Nu-Metal Gloom crossover of “Starve” in 2019, they’ve delivered a new single in “Iron Lung” but that’s not all…

Vocalist Kaya Tarsus explains the song’s meaning: “We wrote Iron Lung just before the impacts of the pandemic swept across the globe, and looking back it couldn’t have been more fitting if we tried. The song centres around having someone or something to get us through each day; “Will you breathe for me? Will you bleed for me?” We all have our own shit going on in life, and at the end of the day you’re the only person that can help yourself through it. In the video, we see this masked figure, living in his own hell and doing what he can to survive. He creates something to worship and hold on to through the darkest times.

At the same time as the single release, Blood Youth have announced that the majority of September 2021 will be spent on the road with Death Blooms as main support…

Guitarist Chris Pritchard comments: “We’ve always wanted to do a tour like this where it’s just stripped down, up close and personal with no bullshit in between. Whenever we’ve tried to do something like this in the past, other tours and opportunities have gotten in the way but this time it’s happening. It feels more perfect than ever to have this be our first tour back after being away from fans for nearly 2 years now, to bring them back and closer than ever straight out the gate. We’re super excited to hit these towns and cities, most for the first time ever, with new songs, new visuals and a new skin – we can’t wait to share that experience with you all.
