Gang of Youths to perform at Cruilla Barcelona in 2019

If you were thinking that GOY was going to disappear after the Laneway Festival early next year, it might be time to think again.

There’s no official confirmation from the band itself, but the folks at the Cruilla Barcelona music festival are advertising a Gang of Youths performance on July 5, 2019.

The festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary next summer. It all goes down at Parc del Forum in Barcelona and tickets are on sale now.

ps – It seems odd to think that the band would just do one summer festival, so don’t be surprised if this is the first of several announcements.

Welcome to Deepest Sighs!

Tap-tap-tap. Testing 1, 2, 3 … is this thing on?

Welcome! You’ve discovered Deepest Sighs, an unofficial fan site about the rock band Gang of Youths.

My name’s Matt, and my co-founder here is Chris. We’ve spent the past month or so putting this site together and we’re thrilled to share it with the world today. Rather than write a thousand words covering the Who? What? and Why? of Deepest Sighs, we recorded this short video to tell you more about us and what we hope Deepest Sighs will become.

Thanks for watching. 🙂 Before you start exploring the site, a couple notes:

  • You can learn even more about us and get our contact info on the About page.
  • The Tours section is still a work-in-progress, but we’re adding setlists and old concert information as quickly as we can.
  • Please check out the Deepest Sighs Forum – a community for fans to gather, discuss and share their appreciation for GOY. Chris and I will both be there, and Erik (aka Swan269 in the forum) is on board as a moderator, too. (Thanks Erik!)

I think that’s all for now. We’d love to hear your thoughts, questions, ideas, etc. — look for the link below to leave a comment in the forum. Thanks for visiting.

MTV Unplugged: Live In Melbourne debuts at #5 on ARIA album chart

Gang of Youths is back on the Australian album chart. MTV Unplugged Live In Melbourne has debuted at No. 5 — the highest debut album this week.

That keeps the band’s streak alive — all four of their albums have reached at least the top five on the ARIA album chart.

The A Star Is Born soundtrack is #1 for the second straight week, and the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack is at #2. See the full chart on the ARIA web site.
