Violet Youth are four troubled 19 year old lads from deepest darkest Blackburn, Lancashire.
Forming in 2016 they quickly became rock stars in their own back yard. Momentum built as the band recorded tracks with Sugarhouse Music (Viola Beach, Pale Waves) creating their own sonic landscapes of deep, dark and melancholic ambience drawing comparisons to The Cure & The Smiths.
Friends from an early age, Owen (Lead Vocals) and Charlie (Lead Guitar) have developed a strong song-writing partnership over many years. Later meeting Jonny (Bass) and Jack (Drums) the four complete the line up of one of the North's emerging musical lights.
2016 saw the band sign to the Northern (Liverpool-based) label ModernSky UK while 2017 will see the band release their debut EP in spring. They then embark a number of UK shows in addition to playing a run of Major Festivals throughout SE Asia.
