“The band’s skilled songwriting signature showcases the ability to control their chaos – fluidly transitioning from ethereal to explosive, separated only by a few short stanzas.” – Knotfest (USA)

Following the release of recent singles Colony3 and Body of Wire, Blood Youth have unleashed another blast of heaviness with their new track Something To Numb The Pain.
The contemporary metal four-piece once again combine their metallic hardcore sound with technical proficiency and a stellar sense of melody. As a result, Something To Numb The Pain expertly balances between riffs, soloing and seething screams before launching into ephemeral vocal lines primed to light up their live set.
“Something To Numb The Pain was one of the first songs written/composed for the new album,” says guitarist Chris Pritchard. “We wrote the outro riff whilst on tour in soundcheck in Germany and I ended up just slotting the rest of the song around it. We wanted to tap into a more classic Blood Youth structure/format whilst implementing new elements like solos, synths, drum patterns and vocal ranges.”
“The song’s lyrical theme is about fake people,” continues Pritchard. “As a band, we’re sick and tired of watching people in this that aren’t in it for the right reasons, yet think they belong here, and then crash and burn. They’re leeches. And this song is about seeing right through someone. Because when you’ve seen it for so long as we have, you know exactly when it’s there.”
Previous releases have been supported by Spotify, Apple Music, Kerrang! (UK), Distorted Sound (UK), Rock Sound (UK), NME (UK), New Noise Magazine (USA), Wall of Sound, HEAVY Mag, Milky, AAA Backstage and Something You Said. The band has also seen radio support from triple j, BBC Radio 1 (UK), KINK (NED), WKNC (USA), NB Radiotreff (DEU) and NPO 3FM KX (NED).
Blood Youth are currently on tour in the UK. The band will also embark on a co-headline tour of the UK and Europe with US metallers Cane Hill in February 2022.
