Their interpretation can be viewed HERE.

Go Farther In Lightness has been receiving praise all over the world, from critics and fans alike. Next month, the band will embark on a UK tour, with US dates to be announced soon.

“A relentlessly driving anthem that bodes well for the follow-up to their 2015 debut…Across five minutes of restorative guitars and hurdling drums, the band finds peace in the panic.” – Stereogum on “What Can I Do If The Fire Goes Out?”

“The rapturous rock band from Australia that seems hell bent on tackling the existential and spiritual angst of the human condition all by their lonesome” – Grimy Goods

“Gang Of Youths might be the next best thing to come out of Australia.” Vanyaland

“They work together phenomenally as a unit. They’re loud, they’re tight, and they’re all natural performers. As the frontman and the face of the band however, David Le’aupepe may be one of the best rising performers in the business.” – AXS

“Gang of Youths have been one of Australia’s best kept secrets. Their warped, proggy take on indie rock has gotten them fans around the world…they’re on the cusp of breaking through in a big way.” – Vinyl Me, Please

“Exuberant and loud, unapologetic in its rough noisiness.” – The Daily Californian

“Raw, honest, and completely captivating” – Chicago Music News
