The California indie-rockers of Young the Giant have returned with a new single along with the announcement of headlining tour dates this fall.
Earlier this month, the group released “Simplify,” their first piece of music since the 2016 LP Home Of The Strange. Lead singer Sameer Gadhia described the song to Broadway World, explaining that in modern life, everything seems complicated, from how we dress and act to how we vote.
“But love is simple, and to love someone is to love all of humanity,” Gadhia said. “It is the closest thing to truth, and even though love can be compromising, painful, and exhausting, we can only see our truest selves in the eyes of another. This is the essence of ‘Simplify.'”
Along with the new track came the announcement of a tour, set to kick-off this October 25 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The group will hit cities like Nashville, Montreal, Cleveland, and Providence before wrapping up on November 16 in Washington, D.C. LIGHTS will support the band throughout the trek. Preceding the tour, Young the Giant will make an appearance at Grandoozy Music Festival in Colorado, and make stops in Pennsylvania and New York.
Since their formation in 2010, the group has skyrocketed into the music scene with their debut self-titled record. Their first LP featured RIAA Gold-certified tracks “Cough Syrup” and “My Body.” Their sophomore record, Mind Over Matter, made the Billboard 200, and Home Of The Strange followed with hits “Amerika,” “Something to Believe In,” and “Silvertongue.”
