Youth Code announces new full-length

Youth Code announces new full-length Commitment To Complications', out April 8th on Dias.

Youth Code have Spent most of there time touring selectively on their own in Europe, and then North America with the legendary Skinny Puppy, Youth Code pulled together their newest songs, hunkering down with producer Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly / Fear Factory), and intertwined the ideas that would become their second full length album, Commitment to Complications. Born in 2012 out of a Los Angeles bedroom, Youth Code was the instinctive creation of musicians Sara Taylor and Ryan George. The band made their spontaneous live debut at LA-based record store Vacation Vinyl’s employee showcase. Word of the incendiary live performance quickly spread and was followed by release of the well-circulated, coveted, Demonstrational Cassette, which saw the band hone their semi-improvised initial set into something altogether more muscular, resonant and lean.

Soon after, Youth Code was invited to release a limited edition single with Genesis P-Orridge’s label, Angry Love Productions. The single quickly sold out and saw the band receive praise from industrial heavyweights including Skinny Puppy and Front Line Assembly. Shortly after the single’s release, the band signed with label Dais Records to release their 2013 self-titled full length album.

Commitment to Complications reflects Youth Code’s time spent with various electronic alumni and scales up the aggressive notch left behind in their previous releases. Youth Code’s introduction of the album starts on a reflective note but quickly changes gears into hyper drive BPM pacing with rhythmic complexity driven in with the track Transitions that can only be referenced as maniacal. Songs like ‘Doghead’ and ‘Shift of Dismay’ show the band as a frontrunner of definitive industrial anthems and critical songwriting skill. Another harbinger of Youth Code’s dire shift into more strident terrain would be evident in the inclusion of Ben Falgoust (Goatwhore) and Todd Jones (Nails) as guest performers. The band’s collaboration with producer Rhys Fulber is in full display, driving the band’s aural trajectory into consuming and contentious industrial electronics.
