Up-and-coming New Jersey outfit Young Rising Sons is quickly on the ascent thanks their radio-ready mix of indie and alternative rock. At their powerhouse live shows the talented quartet fills the air with electric energy while their fans rock out to the catchy anthems like “High” and “F**ked Up”. Frontman Andy Tongren’s melodic sensibility recalls the undeniably catchy hooks of The Strokes, while the band’s no-nonsense rock and roll chops are firmly anchored in the classic style of bands like Queen and Van Halen. In late 2014 Young Rising Sons released The High EP, and they’ve been elevating moods at their live shows ever since.
Young Rising Sons was formed in 2010 when a group of Red Bank, NJ musicians asked singer Andy Tongren to front their newly formed band. After several years of honing their sound the group attracted the attention of several New York producers, who helped them record their 2013 debut single “High”. The track was an overnight success, reaching No. 1 on the Hype Machine and receiving shout-outs from tastemakers like BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe. The band signed to Interscope Records the following year and released a self-titled EP before hitting the road for tours with Weezer and The 1975. Their popularity continued to grow in early 2015 as on opening act on Halsey’s American Youth Tour. With their highly anticipated full-length debut album due out in summer 2015, Young Rising Sons have fans eager to catch the new material at their upcoming tour dates.
