Bio

Drowned Youth was formed back in 1998 by Bernie and Chaz, who’ve been friends since high school. As a duo, we played around Hartford-Newington-New Britain area, with local acts, who like us simply just wanted to play music somewhere besides the garage.
Due to the loss of our last bass player and personal dealings, we haven’t been playing out nor recording these past couple years. Earlier this year we found out my boy Anjre had picked up a bass, so we kind of recruited him. We’re glad to be back with new demos and material that’ll turn in to a great record and our new true bass player "Suicide". ("It’s about time this dude picked up a bass!!!")
The first album "Cookie was recorded in 99’-00’ which started getting us gigs at the old Equator in Manchester, Sully’s, YMCA events and a TV appearance on CPTV in 2001 which was replayed numerous times. "Cookie" was followed up with "Evolution E.P." in 2002. In 2001 we put together a local Hallows Eve festival known as Death Fest which had a few good runs and big turnouts. There is talk about planning another Death Fest for this year, but we’ll see what happens.

A few bands we’ve played with:
Ill Nino; Droid; Philpot; Dope; Down in the Filth; Mad Hat; Mad circle; Black Fire; Sugarfist; Little Hands; L.A. Guns, with Reptillicus; Traci Guns, headlinging second stage; 40 below summer; Flu; Superkid; Strycnine; Caylix in Ruin; When words become weapons; Bella Morte; Deadstar Assembly; Displaced; No Ledge; Roswell and many more...

As with any other band we’re looking to play more shows and expand our audience beyond Connecticut to surrounding states, playing with other locals, make connections...network, and make new friends and fans along the way, because really, without poeople to listen, and enjoy, a band is nothing but a couple of guys who make a lot of noise

Our sound is influenced by a lot of earlier music; between the three of us we are an eclectic bunch, delving into everything from Alice in Chains, to The Beatles, to Roni Size, Hole, Nirvana, KMFDM, Velvet Acid Christ, and Bob Marley and The Wailers. We try to make someting for everyone, or maybe just for one person...who knows. The point is, we try not to classify ourselves as one thing, because labels are loose.

AC/DC wrote "Its a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll". Check out one of our shows sometime...judge for yourselves how far we have to go...

Now it’s 2008 and we have a new E.P. and an L.P. coming out this year which will be two of the most groundbreaking hard rock releases in over a decade, as well as constant touring, radio campaigns, etc, etc. The new E.P. "Save Yr’ Self" will be released online as of 1/31/08. The L.P. should be done by the summer with a limited addition vinyl pressing so be on the look out. There are fans all over the world waiting for these records and live performances so if anyone out there wants get down and help with promotion or bookings let us know.
