Young The Giant to play on Jools Holland!

Young The Giant will make their UK TV debut on Later With Jools Holland on May 3rd. The Californian band, who have thus far released just one, limited edition UK single via Young And Lost Club, have been confirmed to join artists including Adele for the live broadcast and recorded show, before heading out on their first UK tour.

The band’s appearance on Later… will be the first chance for UK fans to see the band in action. Young The Giant were highlighted as one of the key acts of SxSW by Rolling Stone, Spin and Time Magazine, whilst early UK radio support has come from the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens and Fearne Cotton (Radio 1) and Dermot O’Leary, Radcliffe & Maconie and Jo Whiley (Radio 2), and across NME Radio and XFM.

Friends since school days, the members of Young the Giant share a sophisticated musical sensibility with Indian, Persian, British and French-Canadian heritage behind them. Following opening slots for the Whigs and Kings of Leon at Chicago’s House of Blues and a pit stop at South by Southwest last year, they signed with Roadrunner in the US. Since signing, they have recorded their eponymous debut album with producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Raconteurs, My Morning Jacket) at Sunset Sound in LA and Electric Lady in NYC and toured the US, embarking on their first headline dates as well as shows with Cold War Kids. Their self titled debut album is set for a UK release on August 29th.
