PREMIERE: Youth Decay’s “Hysteria” is anthemic Festcore that will make you sing along

Youth Decay is a new band, but their members have been a part of the Canadian punk and hardcore scenes for quite some time now—just take a look at this lineup:  Stu Mckillop (Daggermouth/Aspirations) on vocals, Stu Ross (Comeback Kid/Lowtalker/Living With Lions/Misery Signals) and Benjamin Gibbs (the Grave Life) on guitar, Dana Edwards (Carpenter) on bass and Loren Legare (Living With Lions) on drums. So it should come as no surprise that their debut album, The Party’s Over, is an absolute ripper of a punk record, destined to lead the band to Gainesville, Florida, as soon as possible for the next Fest (and probably result in their members being sprayed with PBR for 30 minutes straight). Today, we’re debuting “Hysteria,” which I described to a friend as “Living With Lions covering a Carpenter song” before I knew that either band shared members with group. Go fig. Stu Ross elaborates:

“We’re psyched to be putting ‘Hysteria’ out to the people. It’s a song that we’re extremely proud of. We’ve felt from its inception that it would be a great sing-along, anthemic tune and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did writing it!”

Youth Decay’s The Party’s Over comes out November 6 via New Damage Records and can be pre-ordered physically and digitally.
