PAWS announce album ‘Youth Culture Forever”

PAWS announce album 'Youth Culture Forever,' share new track and video "Tongues". PAWS will tour with 'We Are Scientists' starting 04/16 Philadelphia, PA.

Glasgow based pop-punk trio PAWS announce the follow up to their 2012 debut album‘ Cokefloat!’ Their forthcoming album ‘Youth Culture Forever’ will be released May 6 on FatCat Records.

Of the album’s title Taylor explains that it came to the band when he and Josh Swinney’, PAWS’ drummer were watching an episode of the cartoon ‘Adventure Time’;

“One of the main characters screams “Youth Culture Forever!” jubilantly in an act of defiance towards an older character who was telling him that his new-fangled youthful ways of thinking and acting were silly and naïve. We just thought that it was a really great message. Life is forever changing and the problems we face as human beings are forever changing. The youth will always hold the potential to make change.”

Expanding on the theme, Taylor states that “Youth culture is forever changing but always retaining the same unmeasurable energy generation after generation. I want that energy to stay with me until I’m an old man, if I get that far.” His chances of doing so appeared slim at one point during the making of the album thanks to a terrifying run-in with a bear that had come out of the woods, but the band managed somehow to survive and get the album done.
