"There’s triumph, there’s hope, there’s glory, there’s wretchedness, there’s profundity in every mundane thing" says Gang of Youth’s front man David Le’aupepe, capturing the essence of a band born out of poetic intensity and the depths of heartache.

In 2012 five long time friends came together in Sydney to do justice to Le’aupepe’s raw song writing and ended up forming a rock band that swiftly grabbed the attention of music fans and industry alike.

Debut album The Positions met with critical acclaim, including Triple J Album of the week and a nod from NME.

Gang of Youths continue to burn bright in 2017, with the release of follow-up album Go Farther in Lightness and no fewer than 8 ARIA Awards nominations including Best Live Act.
