After a summer of festival appearances and the addition of new bass player Miles Cocker, Birmingham punk trio Youth Man continue their relentless assault on the UK underground at full throttle as they announce they will join Cheltenham's Solemn Sun as main support on their November UK tour and release their new single 'Joy' on 13th October.

The 'Bad Weather' EP was a breakthrough release for the band, recorded at the Motor Museum in Liverpool with Al Groves (Elvis Costello, The Coral) on production duties, and debut single 'Heavy Rain' outstripped all expectations racking up multiple BBC Radio One plays from Zane Lowe (who picked the band as his Next Hype selection three times in 2 weeks), Ally McCrae & Jen Long, Phily Taggart & Alice Levine, Mike Davies and also saw coverage from XFM, Kerrang Radio and many more.
