Blood Youth have released a video for their brand new single Iron Lung.
“We wrote Iron Lung just before the impacts of the pandemic swept across the globe, and looking back it couldn’t have been more fitting if we tried,” explains vocalist Kaya Tarsus. “The song centres around having someone or something to get us through each day; “Will you breathe for me? Will you bleed for me?” We all have our own shit going on in life, and at the end of the day you’re the only person that can help yourself through it. In the video, we see this masked figure, living in his own hell and doing what he can to survive. He creates something to worship and hold on to through the darkest times.”
Like what you hear? Iron Lung is out now via Rude Records, available to stream or purchase HERE.
Blood Youth have also announced a UK headline tour, which follows their appearance at Slam Dunk Festival in September. Support on the tour comes from Death Blooms.
“We’ve always wanted to do a tour like this where it’s just stripped down, up close and personal with no bullshit in between,” says guitarist Chris Pritchard. “Whenever we’ve tried to do something like this in the past, other tours and opportunities have gotten in the way but this time it’s happening. It feels more perfect than ever to have this be our first tour back after being away from fans for nearly 2 years now, to bring them back and closer than ever straight out the gate. We’re super excited to hit these towns and cities, most for the first time ever, with new songs, new visuals and a new skin – we can’t wait to share that experience with you all.”
