"We are pop, and we're not afraid to say that”, says front man Tommy Wright (19). "People describe us as having an Eighties' influence, with our synth and guitar combination with big pop chords."
Young Kato, a 6 piece band that met in Cheltenham, have just signed to influential Manchester-based label LAB Records and are currently working on a 4- track EP ‘Young Kato EP’ to be released on 23rd July 2012. The EP has been produced by Gordon Mills Jnr (Placebo, Ed Sheeran).
This will be preceded by single ‘Drink Dance Play’ on 3rd June 2012 – an amazing, punchy track likened to the pop offspring of Friendly Fires and Morrissey, a track about living every day like it’s your last.
Averaging an age of just 18, Young Kato have already cause quite a stir and have played support shows in front of 7,000+ strong crowds in Bristol late last year, and now regularly sell out shows in the West Country.
Leading up to their biggest ever gig at Cribbs Causeway with Pixie Lott at the Bristol Diamond Jubilee Concert on June 2nd, the band will play the Bristol Cooler on 5th May.
Young Kato play the following dates:
May 5th - Cooler, Bristol
June 2nd - Cribbs Causeway Queens Diamond Jubilee Festival, Bristol
July 20th - 2 Pigs, Cheltenham
July 21st - Gloucester Park Festival, Gloucester
July 26th - The Rainbow, Birmingham
