YUNGBLUD wanted to write an album that connects people in the community that he’s building with the music and art and that’s exactly what he did with his debut album “21st Century Liability.” Dominic Harrison spent the Summer building his family on the final Vans Warped Tour 2018 before hitting his headline tour this Fall to sold out venues across the United States. His music is politically charged, emotional, and exactly what the music industry is missing. “21st Century Liability” tackles everything from anxiety and depression, to assault, to not being taken seriously by the older generation.
We caught up with YUNGBLUD at his sold out headlining show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY. We talked about meeting his idol at Cal Jam, what his pre-show rituals are, and his latest single, “Kill Somebody.” Watch our interview below and get to know YUNGBLUD!
Grab a copy of “21st Century Liability” on iTunes and Amazon or stream the album on Spotify.

Dominic Harrison, professionally known as YUNGBLUD is coming out of the gates swinging with infectious poppy melodies and hip hop beats contrasting with dark angsty lyrics on his first full length album. He’s had major success with tracks like “I Love You, Will Ya Marry Me” which documents the tragic love story of a man who proposed to his girlfriend with graffiti on Sheffield’s Park Hill bridge. YUNGBLUD also has two tracks, “Falling Skies” and “Tin Pan Boy” featured on the 13 Reasons Why: Season 2 soundtrack.
With a debut album just released through Locomotion/Geffen Records, massive crowds at the final cross country 2018 Vans Warped Tour, and word of mouth praise from every corner of the globe, YUNGBLUD is destined to be a star with a great career on the very near horizon.
While the album has radio friendly bouncey pop tracks like “Die For The Hype,” YUNGBLUD’s wide range of influences are apparent through the entire album with few tracks sounding the same. He uses this to his advantage and created his own brand of genre bending tracks including the album title track, “21st Century Liability” which draws influence from early 90s hip hop drum loops, crunchy grunge rock guitars, and enough angst to power a whole city.
YUNGBLUD just dropped a music video for his latest single, “Medication” directed by Adam Powell and takes a wild medicated trip. Watch the video below!
If you missed YUNGBLUD playing Vans Warped Tour, you have another chance! He’ll be hopping back on Warped Tour from July 26th – 31st. He’s also hitting a whole bunch of cities for the “21st Century Liability Tour” throughout the US including a stop in NYC. Check out all of the dates HERE!
