All The Young - Quiet Night In

The Stoke's four piece new single is an anthemic, Doves-like belter. Their best yet. - The Sunday Times Culture


"Review: All The Young - Live from King Tuts EP"

The lead track from the bands new set of live recordings is a boisterous indie rock romp which bursts with youthful energy. - The Sun


"All The Young - selected quotes"

Recently named as one of XFM’s 12 for 2012, tipped for the top by Morrissey and with Britain waking up to guitars again, it feels like it might just be time for another iconic sibling pairing to find their place in the history books.


“Those present will be able to say they were there when the new guitar revolution kicked off." – NME live review

“All The Young bring a touch of second album Clash and mid-period Manics to their rousing, anthemic songs” – Sunday Times Culture

“Set to ensnare a new generation of indie-heads.” – The Daily Star

“I loved it because it reminded me of the early Smiths days.” – Morrissey on All The Young’s gig at the Proud Galleries - various - as below


"Caught Live - All The Young @ Proud Galleries, London"

All The Young play stonking great guitar rock in the classic vein of Oasis and The Enemy, and Proud Galleries is a thrashing maelstrom of lagered laddism tonight because they do it, well, rather marvellously. In shades and buttoned down jacket, singer Ryan bellows passionately through the sun-blasted pop of Another Miracle and the thumping rock wallop of 'Here To Stay' with the attitude of a boozed up Beady Eye, while the new single 'The First Time' sups the same optimistic guitar rock elixir that gave Two Door Cinema Club eternal life. And it's almost certainly 'the first time' Proud has seen human pyramids grace it's South Gallery. So no-ones going to win any Nobel Prizes for rarranging rock's DNA tonight, but if proof were needed that the guitar revival was building steam, it's in Ryan's snarl, the crowds abandon and Morrisey's approving nod.Those present will be able to say they were there when the new guitar revolution kicked off.

Bio

After a year when guitars all but vanished from British primetime radio sets, there's a need for a band with the brains, brawn and balls to take 2012 and smash it into a brave new frontier of indie rock 'n' roll. A few names have already been uttered in hushed, and erm, not so hushed tones. In Stoke's All The Young, there's potentially one to drown them all out. It's a vintage yarn that the Dooley brothers – frontman Ryan and bassist Jack – with drummer Will Heaney and guitarist David Cartwright, are rebirthing for a generation that's lying twitching on the floor, wailing out for a hit of heady, heavy r 'n' r.

"The thing is, I can understand as much as anyone right now why there's been a lull in proper guitar tunes," pauses Ryan. "People have been waiting for something bigger to come along. When there’s a lull it made me want it more and fuelled the hunger for it." It's with that same faultless drive, determination and ambition that All The Young burst into the world with an album of brick-breaking powerhouse sounds, brought into catastrophic dimensions by none other than rawk royalty GGGarth Richardson, the man responsible for classic albums from Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Biffy Clyro. A fitting collaboration for a band whose whole manifesto chimes with the age-old tale of the lads from a nowhere town, singing about something better than what's outside their door. Relentlessly honing their craft on the live scene (they’ve performed with Morrissey, Kaiser Chiefs, The Courteneers, The Wombats, Hard-Fi and The Pigeon Detectives) and already able to ram theatre-sized venues on their own merits (as captured in the Live At The King’s Hall, Stoke-on-Trent web app / live album), ATY are readying their own moment of reckoning, with a genuine moment of perfect anthemia.

"We could have been called the Dooleys," chuckles Jack of his four siblings growing up in evergrey Stoke-On-Trent. "Unfortunately there's already a band called the Dooleys, and the two of us didn't fancy it." And so it was that just Ryan and Jack stepped out onto their pub circuit, along with school friends David and then drummer John Bradbury, in an embryonic yet strutting incarnation by the name of New Education. Before long they were heralded in lead NME Radar features and were ramming sweaty dives across country, satisfying anyone with a hunger for honest British guitar music played straight from the heart. It was all moving along, weathering the drought of guitars in the mainstream and drubbing the underground hard until a timely change of sticksman breathed life into them as Will Heaney joined their ranks. "The new songs we were writing were just different, we just noticed that there was a new energy and attitude in all of us and where we were going."

All The Young were birthed. Suddenly there was a new sense of momentum about them; there was dually a new rebirth of sophistication and rawness about the new band they were becoming. "I think we're not scared to freak out now," nods Jack. "On one hand, as you grow up a bit, you start give a bit more of shit about how you look and hold yourself, so you can see that compared to old snaps, I hope. But at the same time, I remember starting to look around the stage and think, 'What damage can we cause here?’ It's been a real release."

There's one song that all members identify as the ATY ignition point, when they morphed from hard grafting indie stalwarts, to one of the most inspiring frontrunners on a brave new frontier of British rock 'n' roll. "'Welcome Home' was the one when after we first played it all the way through, we looked around at each other in a different way. Like we didn't know we had it in us," says Jack, wide-eyed. "It means business that one. There's no way you can play it without your heart and soul fully in it." It's a similar effect for the listener too. 'Welcome Home' is an unstoppable rallying call, with avalanche breakdowns, blockbuster riffage and a scorching chorus hook that can't help but ignite a taper in the mind of any lover of good honest indie-rock.

Choruses have never been something that the Dooley brothers have had any trouble coming up with. 'You And I' is an explosive case in point. There's a strident sense of defiance and flair to all the new ATY material, the kind of fist-pumping fodder that festival crowds were custom-built for. Their debut single 'The First Time' introduced the band with a driving onslaught of churning bourbon-soaked chords and cloud-bursting hopeful melodies, while the lush monochrome promo video defined the slick new swagger, all dizzy abandon, pea-coats, smouldering stares and Brylcreem coiffed bonces, while the upcoming single ‘The Horizon’ features Ryan’s yearning, emotive vocals as its bluesy tones soar into epic territory. A few select anthems kept their place from the New Education days, namely the soaring heights of 'Another Miracle' and the seismic slabs of power-rock that is 'Today'. Both trac
