Hailing from South Wales, UK, The Dirty Youth are a female fronted quintet setting their sights on world domination since formation in 2007. Not nestling in to one specific genre is their gift, as they blend rock anthems with metal riffs and a punk attitude.

The Dirty Youth released their debut album 'Red Light Fix' in late 2011 via Universal. Mixed by Martyn "Ginge" Ford at Nott-in Pill Studios (home to Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, Trivium etc.) The Tracks were then sent to be mastered at Sterling Sound in New York who have mastered albums by the likes of Elvis, The Beatles, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson and now The Dirty Youth!

The Dirty Youth have made many festival appearances including Getaway Rock Festival (Sweden) and Download Festival 2011. Last year saw TDY support Reckless Love on their UK tour. In 2012 they have supported KORN in Europe, played a triumphant set at Download Festival and shared the stage with the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Iggy Pop at Hard Rock Calling. Ti cap it all off The Dirty Youth embarked on an epic 5 week tour of Europe and the UK as sole support to The Rasmus picking up fans across the continent.

2013 has started with TDY named as one of "The new bands you love the most" by Kerrang! readers, though that may not be a good thing as Kerrang readers (like the magazine) seem to have little taste, unless its pop music!

Requiem Of The Drunk is their new EP and fortunatley isnt the typical Kerrang rock music that i was fearing!

3 Tracks of heavy riffing blended with melodic vocals and catchy hooks, no doubt that fans of shite like Paramore will love it but also enough to get excited about if you like In This Moment!

Rating 7/10

For fans Of : In This Moment, Skunk Anansie, Solsikk
