Reliably informed

Who are you and where are you from?
We are Decrepit Youths, an alt-rock band from the North East.

What is it you do?
We create melodic, anthemic rock music, which is bathed in heavy distortion. We always aim to produce catchy vocal/guitar lines, so that our music is memorable. I think the key vibe for us is, can you nod your head to it and can you sing the chorus back? If we can achieve both those things then we are onto a winner! 

How long have you been doing it?
We only launched in June 2023, so we are still in the early stages of promoting ourselves. We have initially focused on releasing music and building an online presence through social media content. 

What inspires you?
We are all inspired by different genres of music, and I think that’s what makes our band so unique. We have all come from different musical backgrounds so when we come to creating original music we all have different experiences we can draw from. We have a variety of elements within our music, ranging from Pop, Rock, Orchestral and even Classical influences.

Tell us about your music.
Our music is fast-paced, energetic and heavy-hitting. We want to leave listeners like they have been on a rollercoaster. We have our third single out now ‘Sleep Torn’. The song talks about mental health and how the outside world can affect this. We wanted to write about this subject as it’s something we have all personally dealt with at some point in our lives, so it’s nice to put thoughts into music and lyrics. 

What have you got coming up in the future?
Expect us to launch 2024 with a bang, with our biggest video and single so far! We don’t want to give too much away, but all i can say is that flame cannons and lasers were involved!

Where can people find out more about you?
