YUNGBLUD Interview with SecretFangirls.com

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!

Artist To Watch: Arrested Youth

Arrested Youth is inspiring anyone and everyone who is fed up with the rat race to ditch it and live life on your own terms!

Ian Johnson, better known as Arrested Youth, started writing music when he was 15, heavily influenced equally by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kid Cudi and dropped a series of mixtapes as well as a debut EP that climbed into the iTunes Top 25 Pop charts.

With success comes strong discouragement and eventually he took a break from music. He also knows a thing or two about the rat race.  Johnson graduated in 2016 with a triple major in business from Indiana University and landed a coveted job in Anheuser-Busch’s’ Global Management Program. Within eight months, he was offered a promotion and a raise – but the position also required 60+ hour workweeks.  He turned it all down to pursue music full time once more.

“Working in corporate America was a struggle,” shares Johnson. “I found myself waking up every day feeling like a prisoner. I started writing music again as an outlet to express my frustrations.”

Since re-entering the music world full time, Arrested Youth is back to inspiring anyone who’s willing to listen.  In 2017, he released “My Friends Are Robots,” an ode to the lack of self expression he experienced while working in corporate America, and “A Painting In Paris” which touches on the vanity of his generation.

Arrested Youth’s debut LP “FEAR” dropped in September 2018 with the lead single “Mirrors,” epitomizing the theme of the album. “The album reflects our state of mind, growing up in a world controlled by social media, the press, mental illness, violence, and extreme uncertainty,” shares Johnson. “We need to look within ourselves to understand who we’ve become as a society. Only then can we change the ill fate of mankind.”

Watch the tour video for “Mirrors” below!

Currently, Arrested Youth is criss-crossing North America with YUNGBLUD’s  21st Century Liability Tour.  The tour hits Brooklyn later this week for a sold out show at Baby’s All Right!  Check out all of the tour dates here.

YUNGBLUD Releases Debut Album “21st Century Liability”

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!
