Fast rising British indie pop band Young Kato today announced a host of new UK shows including their first headline tour of 2014 which kicks off in Oxford on April 22nd and ends in Bath on May 2nd. The bands headline tour follows their own London Highbury Garage show on March 27th and a nationwide tour supporting You Me At Six.
Having recorded and completed their debut album with in-demand producer Dan Grech-Marguerat (The Vaccines, Tom Odell, Howling Bells, Beck, Hurts, Lana Del Rey) at The Strongrooms Studio complex in East London Young Kato are excited to showcase the new additions to their burgeoning catalogue.
Just prior to another great surge of live activity for the band, Young Kato release standout single ‘Help Yourself’ on March 24th. ‘Help Yourself’ brilliantly showcases this young band’s knack for writing classic pop songs that will stand the test of time. Soaring guitars give way to vocalist Tommy Wright’s uniquely rangy vocal style and come together once again to create a single that proves Young Kato were one of the major standout acts to launch in 2013.
In just 12 months the six piece have taken their sound from a small rehearsal room in Cheltenham, to gain major national TV exposure, Singles of the Week across numerous radio stations including Radio 1, XFM and Absolute and a legion of devoted fans along the way.
