The band burst into the world with an album of brick-breaking powerhouse sounds, brought into catastrophic dimensions by none other than rock royalty GGGarth Richardson, the man responsible for classic albums from Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Biffy Clyro. A fitting collaboration for a band whose whole manifesto chimes with the age-old tale of the lads from a nowhere town, singing about something better than what's outside their door. Relentlessly honing their craft on the live scene (they’ve performed with Morrissey, Kaiser Chiefs, The Courteneers, The Wombats, Hard-Fi and The Pigeon Detectives) and already able to ram theatre-sized venues on their own merits (as captured in the Live At The King’s Hall, Stoke-on-Trent web app / live album), Their UK headline tour kicks off on 28 May with a gig at the iconic 100 Club and followed by 15 dates around the country, before the boys embark on a summer of festival performances across Europe.
Named as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World, the band’s last single Quiet Night In
was the band’s third following The First Time
and Welcome Home
. Fourth single The Horizon
has received support and plays from Zane Lowe and Fearne Cotton at Radio 1 and has been playlisted on the XFM Daytime List and at Kerrang Radio, gaining strong regional support. ATY were recently named as one of XFM’s 12 for 2012 and tipped for the top by Morrissey.www.alltheyoung.co.uk
