Young Fathers Announce North American Tour

Young Fathers reveal North American dates

UK trio Young Fathers have announced new North American spring tour dates. The Mercury Prize-winning Scottish band is currently on the road with Massive Attack in Europe. The trio is touring in support of their  2015 album White Men Are Black Men Too (Big Dada). Watch their latest video for “Old Rock N Roll,” filmed in a small village in Malawi last fall, below.

Young Fathers are ‘G’ Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi and Kayus Bankole. The three men are each named after their fathers—a unifying bond for a band that pushes against the binds of definition. They are hiphop and punk, rock and pop, and anything else you want to label them as, but really, they are none and all of these. They released one of the most original albums of 2014 with DEAD, which won them the 2014 Mercury Prize—the UK’s highest honor for an album.
