Today, Young the Giant return with their newest full-length album Mirror Master via Elektra Records, which includes the recently shared tracks “Simplify” and “Call Me Back”, along with the musing, buzzworthy new single “Superposition”. Mirror Master is available to stream or purchase at https://lnk.to/mirrormaster.

Last week, Young the Giant delivered “soaring” (Billboard) performances of “Superposition” and “Simplify” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and earlier this summer they also appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, with a powerful rendition of “Simplify”.

Describing the overall thesis for Mirror Master, vocalist Sameer Gadhia explains, “Within one single day, we’re all so many different people. Especially with the use of social media, we’re not just living in the now—we’re living on several different timelines simultaneously. A lot of the album came from thinking about how we have all these separations within ourselves that allow us to go about our day. At a time when everyone wants to put each other in a box—culturally, socially, musically—we wanted to show that there are a multitude of reflections inside everything. We don’t have to be a certain thing; we can contradict ourselves and show all these different sides of who we are.”

Since the band's 2010 inception, Young the Giant has made a name for itself in rock as the ‘thinking man's band,’ winning over fans, radio, and press with their incendiary live shows, strong musicianship, and poignant lyrics. Following 2016’s critically-acclaimed Home of the Strange, Mirror Master promises to continue ascending into consciousness, though this time with a heavy focus on personal self-awareness and growth.

Mirror Master finds Young the Giant in a transitional period for America, not only as a culture (for their former album Home of the Strange, NPR’s Alisa Chang had an in-depth conversation with Gadhia about the ‘modern immigration story’, available to read here), but also technologically. The band members have become increasingly aware of society’s attachment to social media, cellphones, and elevated, sometimes fabricated, self-portrayals on the internet.

With the new album, the band forgoes the technological obsession and, in an almost meditative way, examines one’s relationship with the “self” to instead express a genuine identity.

“Something we want to get across with the album is the idea of taking authorship of your life,” continues Gadhia. “Even though it may all be an illusion, there's solace in that illusion. Because if you have control of anything at all, it’s your own reflection, how you treat people and how you walk through this life. So if you’re an Indian kid and your parents want you to be a doctor or lawyer or engineer, and you just want to make music with your friends, then do that. Don’t let people feed you what they want you to think. Do what makes you happy, and realize and that all is good and all is horrible, and everything else in between.”

Young the Giant is composed of Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar/vocals), Payam Doostzadeh (bass), and Francois Comtois (drums/vocals). They are on tour this fall across the US with LIGHTS as main support. For more information and concert tickets, visit youngthegiant.com.

Young The Giant

Young the Giant are an American alternative rock band who formed in Irvine, California in 2004. The band consists of Sameer Gadhia (vocals, percussion), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Payam Doostzadeh (bass) and François Comtois (drums). The band’s name is purposefully nonsensical; Gadhia explained it as a “leftfield idea” meant to evoke curiosity. The band released their debut self-titled album, Young the Giant, on 25 January 2011, which was preceded by a digital-only release in October 2010. The first single, “My Body,” reached #5 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, and a second single, “Cough Syrup,” reached #3 on the same chart. Previously, the band was known as The Jakes. They released a 7 song EP, Shake My Hand, in 2008, which including two songs (“Garands” and “Cough Syrup”) now on the current self-titled album Young the Giant.
