The Skinny: Following a split with frontman Wes Thompson, the remaining members of Lincolnshire based melodic hardcore band Climates went on a hunt for a new frontman. Working on new material throughout 2014, the band eventually teamed up with Kaya Tarsus and Blood Youth was born.

After a few intensive months behind closed doors, the quintet are now ready to reveal their debut offering, the Inside My Head EP, which will see release June 22nd in partnership with label Rude Records (home of Zebrahead, Emery, Knuckle Puck, American Hi-Fi, Set It Off, amongst others).

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
