Young The Giant is one of the hottest bands in music right now, having coming off a killer performance on NBC’s The Today Show, and propelled to mainstream stardom with their break out appearance at the last MTV VMA’s. On October 26th 2010, they released their debut album, which Amazon hailed as the third best rock album of the year, and since then many of their songs have been played on hit shows like Glee and American Idol, as well as a command performance on MTV’s Unplugged. They crossed into the upper echelons of the Billboard 200 and it looks like the future couldn’t be any brighter for the “OC’s Next Big Band”. They are selling out concerts and festivals all across the country, and have quickly become one of the fastest rising bands around.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with Jacob and Payam of Young The Giant before they open the much heralded MusikFest in Bethlehem, PA (Considered one of the premiere outdoor festivals for music in the country) to talk about their debut album, what performing at the MTV VMA’s was like essentially making them a household name, hearing their songs on some of America’s most popular TV Shows, what to expect from their new album, and sooo much more! YTG is one of my favorite artists out right now, so it was awesome to be able to meet and chat with them! Enjoy Kade Nation!!
