All of us at Epitaph/Anti Records are very proud to welcome Youth Group to the family, with their American debut CD, Skeleton Jar to be released on May 24th 2005.
Epitaph prez Brett Gurewitz said: "On the very first listen, Youth Group enchanted me like a new acquaintance that I'd seemingly known my whole life. Skeleton Jar is one of those rare generous records that invites you in again and again and never stops giving."
Dark and melancholic, Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter Toby Martin has a voice so undeniably pure and potent. With each song he guides us across varied landscapes of pop, folk and indie rock terrain. From the haunting single "Shadow Land," to live favorites "See-Saw" and "Piece of Wood," Skeleton Jar is truly an eclectic feast.
The band recently played a showcase at Spaceland in Los Angeles to a packed house. You can hear some tracks off the upcoming release 'Skeleton Jar' and watch a great video at their website href='http://www.youthgroupmusic.com/' target='_blank'>youthgroupmusic.com!
