It’s been a crazy last couple years here at the Young Fangs base. There has been more than just a few setbacks to our recording our record: broken and faulty equipment, new jobs, new lifestyles, schedule changes, cancellations, etc, etc, etc. At times it seemed like there wasn’t really much keep us going forward. All around us people were starting albums and finishing them and touring them and there we were, still recording drum tracks. All possibilities of a completed record offered vague, transient solace to us. On top of the band, we also have families and full time jobs that take precedence in many ways, of course. But we’ve kept moving forward at a glacier pace; moving forward nonetheless.
Now, after a few modifications and a history of it’s own, we are releasing the single off our record called Have & Hold. Those of you who have seen us live have definitely heard us play it, but now you can take it with you (if you wanna…but don’t you wanna?). We’re super excited. You can find it on Soundcloud and (hopefully soon) on iTunes.
As far as recording is concerned, We have all the bass and drum tracks done, and have moved on to guitar! Woohoo! We know last year we said that it would be THIS spring that we would release the album, and for that we are sorry. Things are on a good trajectory right now and we are moving ahead at the fullest speed we can muster. SO, spring 2015! Let’s make this record happen!
We have new shirts as well!!!! Message us on our Facebook for more information! They’re super soft and awesome!
WE LOVE YOU ALL FOR THE CONTINUED SUPPORT! It would be ever so difficult without the encouragement and faith that we get from you all! This is something we believe we’re called to do and we press on furthermore. THANKS FOR CARING!

Hey everything! Here’s a new music video we made for the acoustic version of Enemies! We hope you like it!
Thanks For Caring!
We’ve been busy making a video with Explore Fairbanks Alaska! They wanted us to play our song Show Me The Way and they’re videotaping it and putting it together for a big conference that they want us to play for in October. It’s been a lot of fun and a good learning experience. Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Here’s some photos, and Thanks For Caring!
It’s been extremely rainy here in Fairbanks, AK. A very The Bronze Medal kind of week. A cool wind sweeping over damp grass across the rolling hilldom of this little town has everyone back in their jackets, reluctantly, with quiet curses. In the meantime, we’ve been writing and writing and recording still. We have a brand new song called ‘Bloodlines’ that we’re super excited to play live at our next show; which is the 1st of August! Matt Hopper & the Roman Candles w/ Peter Piek will be joining us for this First Friday event at The Artisan’s Courtyard! After that we’ll be in Healy for Augtoberfest the next day, and then on Sunday we’ll be playing for Golden Wheel’s Summer Spectacular! So busy! Anyway, we hope you all are doing well. Thanks For Caring!
We’re still moving forward with our album recording! All of our songs have been scratch tracked and this Sunday we’ll be starting drums (besides Have & Hold, which is pretty much done). Thank you for being so patient with us! In the meantime, on the 20th of June we’ll be playing a show at Humpy’s. There will be some awesome bands other bands such as Kithkin and Rags & Ribbons. Then on the 22nd, we’ll be downtown on the Noble stage at 10pm. Come out and hear some new tunes! Thanks for Caring!
Hey everyone. Hope you’ve been having a good week so far. We’ve had a blast writing new music and playing some shows. Just a heads up, we’re gonna be at The Marlin. This friday with our friend Ben Sanders. It’s been a little bit since we’ve done the Mar, but we’re excited to do so.
