Harrogate heavy-hitters Blood Youth have unleashed ‘Making Waves’, the second single to be taken from their highly-anticipated debut album ‘Beyond Repair’, set for release on April 7th, 2017, via Rude Records.
Vocalist Kaya Tarsus reveals of the song’s origin and inspiration: “Making Waves is about numbing the pain, erasing memories and the conversations I had with strangers when I was at a very low point. It’s about a time when I was living on my own, depressed with no distractions. I found myself just constantly thinking about everything I was going through. I thought that I could fix this by going out every single night, sometimes on my own, just so I could distract myself for a few hours. Ironically, I would always end up feeling so much worse in the morning. Making Waves was actually the first track written for Beyond Repair and inspired the entire album theme.”

Recording for ‘Beyond Repair’ took place between Jonny Renshaw at Bandit Studios and Robin Adams at The Warehouse, with mixing by Studio Fredman and rounded off with mastering by Alan Douches at West West Side. The result is a blend of furious metal and hardcore, deep and dark with a jolt of adrenaline, offering up guaranteed circle-pit starters in tandem with opening up into massive sing-alongs. As Tarsus puts it: “Beyond Repair is about being angry, it’s about how we deal with this anger in the modern age. We were aiming to create something very aggressive but very real. With Beyond Repair, I believe we have achieved just that.”

About Blood Youth
Harrogate heavyweights Blood Youth began life in late 2014, intent on channeling their collective fears and frustrations about unstable futures the only way they knew how: into music. The band have released two EPs: ‘Inside My Head’ (2015) and ‘Closure’ (2016), each showcasing the band’s talent for striking a compelling balance between fury and vulnerability.
Since their inception, Blood Youth have focused considerable energies on the road, with stints throughout Europe supporting Silverstein, While She Sleeps, Architects and Beartooth under their belts, in addition to two UK headliners. They have also amassed festival slots at the likes of Download, Hevy, Camden Rocks, Ghostfest, Y Not, Destruction Derby, Butserfest and 2000 Trees. Summer 2016 saw the release of a limited edition double vinyl, collecting their discography to date, and marked by rapturously received slots at the Slam Dunk festivals and on the road supporting Every Time I Die.
With their debut full-length album ‘Beyond Repair’, Blood Youth are preparing to get real… real angry.
