Max Dunn Contributes to New EP from Jamie Myers

While Gang of Youths has been working on new music, bassist Max Dunn also spent some time during the pandemic helping out on a new EP from British singer Jamie Myers.

Myers recently released a 5-song EP called Midnight Marquee. The first single was the title track, which Myers released back in February. The second single is a track called “Shade,” and that’s the one on which Max plays bass. (It’s not immediately clear if Max plays on other songs; articles like this one seem to imply he’s only on this one track.)

Myers shared a photo of him and Max working in the studio in this IG post.

Gang of Youths confirmed for 2022 Rock am Ring & Rock im Park festivals

Gang of Youths has its first shows booked for 2022.

The band was announced Thursday on the lineups for the dual German festivals Rock am Ring and Rock im Park, which will happen simultaneously from June 3-5 next year. It’s still 13 months away, so don’t hold your breath for details on when GOY will play at which festival.

If all this sounds familiar, it’s because GOY was due to perform at these same festivals in June 2020. But the pandemic forced organizers to cancel both last year’s and this year’s festivals. So here we are talking about 2022 during the first week of May 2021.

If you’re really organized and eager, tickets for both festivals are already on sale now: Rock am Ring tickets | Rock im Park tickets

We’ve already added both events to our page with all upcoming Gang of Youths gigs, even thought we don’t know the exact dates yet.

Gang of Youths will play the 2021 All Points East festival

Gang of Youths is set to play at the 2021 All Points East festival. The event is set for the final weekend of August at London’s Victoria Park. GOY is scheduled for the final day of the festival: Monday, August 30.

Tickets are available now.

This is now GOY’s fourth scheduled live gig of the year. The band was due to play last year’s APE festival in May 2020, but that was one of many victims of the worldwide pandemic.
