Young Rival announce, Album, Tour, Single

Young Rival have announced their new album Interior Light, for which they have shared the title track

Canadian psych-garage rock band Young Rival released their first piece of new music today since 2012’s Stay Young. The three piece known for their Nuggets-era blend of rock have emerged with a new track, “Interior Light.” The song is the title track from the band’s forthcoming album, which will be released on October 16th. Interior Light will be Young Rival’s first release on new label home Paper Bag Records, home to Teen Daze, My Brightest Diamond, and Tokyo Police Club. Listen to the title track below, along with tour dates and a tracklist for the album.

To coincide with the release of their new album, Young Rival will head out on a full North American tour with label-mates Born Ruffians. The tour kicks off in Burlington, VT on October 27th. Highlights include the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on October 28th, the newly opened Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles on November 14th and a full string of dates in the band’s home country, Canada.

Yet, to keep the band sounding fresh – for them as well as for their fans – the three friends had to take a step back and reassess Young Rival: how they sounded, what they did, and how they did it. “It was definitely time for us to have a sitdown together and figure things out,” says Aron D’Alesio, the band’s singer, songwriter, and guitar player. It could have spelled the end of Young Rival, but instead, “we decided to switch things up. Do things differently. Try something new.”
