The Gospel Youth Tickets
Made up of former members of The Auteur and Fleeing From Finales, The Gospel Youth is a rock and pop five-piece from Brighton. With a sound that is reminiscent of groups such as Kids In Glass Houses, the band first got going in 2014, when their debut release came out. The south coast pop rockers that make up The Gospel Youth are Samuel Little, Julian Bowen, Tom Aylott, Kurtis Maiden and Kev Deverick, who all contributed to the Kids EP, which was released towards the end of 2014. As well as the title track from that work, the band included two other songs; “Mixtape” and “H.L.B.”.
The Gospel Youth's career milestones
After Kids was released, The Gospel Youth made a video to promote it, which was shot in and around the band's home city. The following year, the band stepped up their live performance schedule and went on to play plenty of gigs. Some of the acts that The Gospel Youth shared the bill with at this time were Mallory Knox, Deaf Havana, Sam Duckworth, We Are the Ocean and Verses, among others. In 2015, the band also put out a new three-track release, entitled The True Lost Boys. It featured an acoustic version of “Kids”, as well as a new track, “Stay Positive”. The third song on the release was a radio edit of “If She's the Rope”.
In 2016, The Gospel Youth kicked things off with a tour of the UK, which they undertook with Hands Like Horses. That year, the band began to release tracks exclusively to their growing fan base. This was organised via a fan club, known as Team TGY. Later that year, the band put out a new mini-album, entitled Empires. It featured “If She's the Rope” once more, and a full-band version of “Stay Positive”. New tracks included “Lighting Fires” and “Homesick”.
A one-off single would follow in 2017. The first release that the band made for a while was a track named “Moods Like English Weather”. The band used it to promote their forthcoming debut studio album, which would be made up of 10 tracks, with only “Revolutions” and “Kids” having previously been made available. The album kicked off with the piano-driven power ballad “I Will Deliver You to the Fireflies”. Rockier indie tracks such as “Spirit of Boston” and “Tired Eyes and Heavy Hearts” also kept fans of their live sound satisfied. Overall, the album was warmly received by critics with a pop sensibility. In particular, Little’s soulful and powerful voice was singled out for praise by many.
