The New Jersey based 5-piece Youth In Revolt has a crystal clear and very melodic sound on their new album "The Broken", but I bet they are much heavier live because these songs are like wolves in sheeps clothing.
YIR are labelmates with Megosh, Chasing Safety and Lorna Shore but sounds like they could belong to the Tooth and Nail Records family, the production could be signed Aaron Sprinkle.
You might have stumbled across YIR`s covers of "Royals" (Lorde) or "Something in the way you move me" (Ellie Goulding) on Youtube, but "The Broken" features all original songs and damn they´re good.
Frontman Tanner Allen has a highpitch voice that is hard not to like, it suits the music just perfect. In fact, he´s the star in this great band.
