This indie rock band from Hamilton embraces elements of older music – Brit Invasion, New Wave with a dash of surf. Singer/guitarist Aron D’Alesio says he grew up listening to The Yardbirds, The Beatles and The Kinks. Joined by bass player John Smith and Noah Fralick on drums, D’Alesio says the band was determined to put together an album that “we could really stand behind and be really proud of.”
Produced by Jon Drew (F’ed Up, Tokyo Police Club, Arkells), “Stay Young” is Young Rival’s second full length album.
The new album is out October 23rd through Sonic Unyon. They’ll play the Horseshoe in Toronto on November 22nd.
