Formed in 2005 by vocalist/guitarist Hans Zimmerman with the rest of the lineup in place by 07, The Youngs early singles for Chicagos Criminal IQ and Austins Super Secret were followed by an appearance on Matadors 'Casual Victim Pile compilation LP/CD. Though that modest output was hardly without merit, the subsequent full-length album on NYCs Mexican Summer, 'Voyagers Of Legend was nothing less than the underground rock revelation of 2010. There hasnt been a full-length this spot-on with mood and 1%er hooks in years, declared our good friend Andrew Earles, while the folks at 29-95.com prefered to drop the P word, insisting 'Voyagers was an implacable psychedelic rock journey.. almost cruelly evocative. Those fortunate enough to have seen their recent shows sharing bills with the likes of Sic Alps and Lower Dens, know all too well their recorded works to date are only skimming the surface of what these guys are capable of. And now that weve put horrible, unfair pressure on them to produce, well simply announce The Young have signed to Matador and shall begin recording their second album later this summer.
