Rising British artist, YUNGBLUD announces biggest 2019 European and UK tour yet

Riding high off the success of his single 'Lonely' that was released back in January, the singer announced a massive set of tour dates later on this year today! 

I'm incredibly new to the enigma that is YUNGBLUD, but I know I'll be right in the pit at his London show this November where he'll be gracing Brixton Academy's stage. After several cryptic teasers on his socials including an overjoyed video of him sharing with fans that he would be playing the 5,000 capacity sized venue, before dropping a full set of tour dates at 8 am!

YUNGBLUD, otherwise known as Dominic Harrison, is a British born hip-hop/rock artist from Doncaster. His sound has previously been described as 'a spitfire suburban poetry of younger Arctic Monkeys and Jamie T, fused with a healthy touch of ska and hip-hop spirit for good measure'. His songs are full of catchy guitar riffs and all written by him as well, in short, he has lyrics with deep personal meaning to him that is more than clear when he's on stage.

Amidst dating rumours linking him with well-known artist Halsey, a big campaigner for social issues, Harrison holds his own in this field too. Coining songs like 'Polygraph Eyes' calling out the current rape culture epidemic that plagues many young people's lives all across the world through to tracks like 'Machine Gun (F**k The NRA)' that explicitly commentate on the USA's gun violence crisis. It's these songs that really resonated with me when I first gave him a listen, not every artist is bold enough to so explicitly make their viewpoint on these kinds of social issues known. Especially at the tender age of 21, regardless of your opinion on his music, this young boy deserves everyone's respect at the very least.

Tickets for his tour go on sale at 9 am GMT on the 6th February (just two days time), so be quick before they're all gone for good!
