MTV Buzzworthy was kind enough to premiere an unreleased holiday track from Young Statues entitled “Porcelain Dress.” The song was recorded last year but went unheard until now. Checkout the track below.
Young Statues will be hitting the road in September alongside friends Man Overboard and Real Friends, hitting a few northeast US dates as well as a string of Canadian dates. Check out the flier below!
Our friends at MTV were kind enough to premiere the brand new Young Stautes video for their new song “Eraser.” Click the image above to see it.
Here’s what MTV had to say about the video:
If you need a bonfire for your next camping trip, there’s only one thing to do: Ransack people’s apartments and steal their vinyl albums and guitars. Or maybe, uh, buy firewood. The former, however, works out pretty well for Philadelphia’s Young Statues, who heat up a chilly night out with old records and a very unlucky turntable in their “Eraser” video from their Age Ain’t Ours EP. (WINTER BREAK FOREVER!!!).
Diffuser.fm is now streaming a brand new Young Statues song from their forthcoming EP “Age Isn’t Ours” out April 2nd. Click the image below to stream the song and read a short excerpt from songwriter/vocalist Carmen Cirignano.
“I’ve always admired the way songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan tell such vivid stories in their songs,” Cirignano tells Diffuser.fm. “In ‘Ghost Passenger’ I really wanted try emulating that, to bring to life some of my experiences growing up in New Jersey. The song is about the inevitability of having to leave certain things, and people behind as you move forward in your life.”
Today Young Statues announced their new EP “Age Isn’t Ours” will be out April 2nd, along with pre-orders going up and the new song “Eraser” streaming on Noisey. You can stream it and check out the pre-order options below.
On April 2nd, Young Statues will release a new EP aptly titled Age Isn’t Ours. A bold, lively and adventurous collection of songs that showcases the band at their absolute best and most confident. A portion was recorded and produced by Ace Enders (The Early November) at his Living Room Recording studio in Hammonton, NJ. A process that Cirignano says, “it challenged the band to bring their very best every day”. Another first was guitarist Matt Weber in the producers chair who recording at The Gradwell House in Haddon Heights, NJ, which has become a second home of sorts for the band. Age Isn’t Ours sees Young Statues expanding on the atmospheric Americana inspired rock from the S/T full-length and into the world of smart and sophisticated indie pop. The songs move and unfold with an energy only hinted at previously. Still present are Cirignanoâ€™s contemplative and occasionally biting lyrics. Friends, lovers, family and every bit of his personal life are all discussed with an honest wit. â€œIn a thousand years it never changed and I’ve only got sixty if I’m lucky” he sings on Ghost Passenger confronting both a situation he wants to desperately change and his own mortality in one piercing line. With Age Isnâ€™t Ours, Young Statues have matured far beyond what their name implies. They are a band that started as an idea and grew into a certainty – all in just 18 months.
