Born in Yorkshire, England, YUNGBLUD is a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, bass, piano, and drums.  He first picked up a guitar at age two and began writing his own songs at age 10. At an early age, YUNGBLUD moved to London to kick-start his career and refine his musical vision, a process aided by his rediscovery of firebrand artists like The Clash, Arctic Monkeys and N.W.A.

With over 90 million streams to date, 2019 is looking to be a massive year for YUNGBLUD. In creating his full-length debut 21st Century Liability, he channeled his outrage into songs both confrontational and catchy as hell, steeped in punk fury and pop melodicism. But while the album takes on everything from consent to white supremacy to the NRA, his main mission is to empower and uplift rather than divide. “So many young people feel misunderstood these days,” says the London-based artist otherwise known as Dominic Harrison. “The world looks at us like we’re liabilities, but we’re not—and if you listen to us, we might actually teach you something. We know the kind of world we want to live in, and we’re not going to be held back by a generation that isn’t ready for things to change.”

On 21st Century Liability, YUNGBLUD fuses rock-and-roll and hip-hop--two genres he perceives as “sharing the same soul,” given their raw passion and rebel spirit. Harrison teamed with producers Matt Schwartz (Kylie Minogue, Massive Attack), Martin Terefe (Coldplay, Shawn Mendes) and Dave Katz “Sluggo” (Good Charlotte, Gym Class Heroes, Katy Perry), to bring boundary-blurring experimentation to the production process. The result: an album that’s sonically volatile yet immediately infectious. “It’s like a Trojan horse,” says Harrison of 21st Century Liability. “On the outside it sounds so fun and you can jump about to it, but when you really listen to the lyrics there’s something darker and deeper going on.”

Last month, YUNGBLUD released the new song “Loner” available now via Locomotion / Geffen Records. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE.

YUNGBLUD is currently on a sold-out European headlining tour and has played to crowds all over the world including festivals Reading & Leeds, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits as well as the final Vans Warped Tour.
