Sydney outfit Youth Group have signed with Epitaph records as they start their first tour of the UK and the US.
Singer and lead guitarist Toby Martin is currently being courted by some of England's premier music magazines as the band criss-cross England in support of The Music. Already the band are beginning to find their niche, strong reviews have begun to come in for their latest LP, Skeleton Jar
. The signing by Epitaph signals their continued push away from the pop-punk market and in to a wider indie stable.
Youth Group will take their gentle and melancholic indie rock to both coasts of the US and some Canadian cities before returning to Australia, tour dates can be found at Youth Group's offical website.
