DP!: How would you describe yourselves to someone who has never heard The Young Hearts before?
The Young Hearts: We always struggle with this one, but I guess we are a mix of early 00s emo and the new wave of classic punk rock bands. We have a wide variety of influences, which definitely come out in our music. We take inspiration from bands like The Gaslight Anthem, The Menzingers, and Jimmy Eat World.

DP!: How did the band form?
The Young Hearts: The band is formed from the break up of an old pop punk band, and then pretty much the persistent nagging of our drummer AJ, who was already in two other bands at the time, to join us. He finally gave in and the rest is history.

DP!: What plans do you have for the future?
The Young Hearts: We are currently doing a lot of behind the scenes work on our album. The album is finished, but we are doing a lot of media based projects to support it. We will of course be touring, with hopefully a few festival appearances as well. There’s also some big news that we are not able to announce yet, but we’re very excited.

DP!: Which new bands are you listening to right now?
The Young Hearts: Hot Mulligan have just put out a fantastic record, we’ve been listening to them for a while. Luca Brasi recently released an incredible new track called ‘This Selfish Love’, and the new stuff from The Japanese House is outstanding.

DP!: Which bands do you aspire to and why?
The Young Hearts: We mentioned our influences before so we will always aspire to them, but we also love the huge stadium bands with their sort of larger than life performances. Bands like The Killers and Bruce Springsteen are so important to us, the way they can captivate thousands at their shows, and still consistently put out great records after all these years.

DP!: What’s the stand out moment in your career so far?
The Young Hearts: Being included in the top ten punk releases of 2018 by Kerrang and being championed so much by Alt Press is without a doubt a very proud moment as we think very highly of both these alternative platforms. Plus, sharing the stage and touring with some incredible bands that we now call friends is amazing.
