YOUTH FUNERAL + Alternative Press

With its second EP, See You When I See You, out tomorrow, January 27th, on Twelve Gauge Records, Youth Funeral has teamed with Alternative Press to offer a stream of the entire record.

Stream Youth Funeral's See You When I See You, here.

AP's write-up of the New Hampshire band's newest work calls it "a throwback to screamo pioneers like Orchid with a sound that's simply apocalyptic."

See You When I See You was produced by Will Killingsworth (Magrudergrind, Ampere). Guitarist/vocalist Casey Nealon has stated that the lyrics deal with "confronting mortality." The EP follows a 2013 EP, Symptom of Time, and a recent split with Scowler.

Pre-order See You When I See You from Twelve Gauge Records.

"A throwback to screamo pioneers like Orchid with a sound that's simply apocalyptic"
–Alternative Press

"A devastating, pummeling album that sounds like screamo legends Saetia and Orchid. Instead of smashing that worn-out Saetia tape into your mom's Volvo for the thousandth time, plug this in and reinvigorate your faith in the genre."

"A complex, heavy slab of screamo in the Orchid/Loma Prieta/Deathwish Inc vein. One thing that sticks out about them is the technically proficient instrumentalism... It manages to be technical, emotional and tightly composed at the same time."

"Like their colleagues in Loma Prieta and Birds In Row, they do not plagiarize and instead craft their own sound... See You When I See You effortlessly combines emotional rawness and jarring complexity that take screamo to new and interesting heights."
–American Aftermath

"A devastating and jarring screamo record, the likes of which hasn't been seen since the early '00s."

"An excellent slab of post-hardcore invective."
