We are excited to announce that MT Warning will return to London in late September before the release of “Youth Bird”, right after the bands very first headline tour in Australia.
“‘Youth Bird’ falls midway through the forthcoming album. Like the life story of the record, ‘Youth Bird’ is the lament but also the regained freedom of realizing the coveted, but short lived prize of youth. “ MT WARNING.
MT WARNING had a big start earlier this year with their debut single ‘Forward Miles’ – Triple J airplay, FBI, XFM Evening playlists in the UK and ‘NEXT HYPE’ artist predicted by Zane Lowe on Radio 1. Along with a remix in conjunction with US Filter magazine via Vinnie La Duce and a 7inch release on Rough Trade Records, it’s been a busy few months.
Their new single ‘Youth Bird’ was immediately played on Triple J. “Following on from the beautiful slow-burner ‘Forward Miles’, MT WARNING are back with the propulsive and rocking ‘Youth Bird’. It features sharp guitar chords, a driving drum rhythm and Mikey Bee’s howling vocals.” – Dom Alessio, Home & Hosed.
Their first gigs ever were support slots for The Temper Trap and The Rubens. These were followed by a a headline show at The Shacklewell Arms, presented by Communion & Eat Your Own Ears, before opening the main stage at Field Day London.
The band name comes via their home town – Mount Warning is the first place to see the sunrise in Australia, the first place the sailors would see from the ocean and when they saw that they knew they were close to Point Danger, a reef that would kill them if they didn’t turn east.
Single “Youth Bird ” is out on Itunes on 21st October
