The Young Veins Announce Summer Tour With Rooney, Debut Album Take A Vacation! Due Out June 8, Free MP3s

The Young Veins’ debut album, Take a Vacation!, is out on June 8th via One Haven Music. On release day, the band will be in Los Angeles to perform at famed independent record store, Origami Vinyl, for a special street date appearance.

The Young Veins have announced summer touring plans that will kick off with a set at Bonnaroo on June 11th. The band will then hit the road for a coast to coast tour with Rooney. Lead single “Change” can be downloaded now at the band’s website . The full album can be pre-ordered now here: .

Following closely in the verve of pop-tunesmiths of yesteryear, the California-based 5 piece consists of Ryan Ross on vocals and guitar (Panic! at the Disco), Jon Walker on vocals and guitar (Panic! at the Disco), Andy Soukal on bass, Nick White (Bright Eyes, Tilly and The Wall) on keyboards and Nick Murray on drums. Primarily the writing project of Ryan Ross and Jon Walker, The Young Veins was created when the two members of the wildly popular Las Vegas band Panic! at the Disco exhibited a writing progression that began to fall increasingly outside the lines of the band’s context. After their last world tour for Pretty. Odd, Ross and Walker took their new material to Castle Oak Studios and Sunset Sound in LA, teaming up with producers Alex Greenwald (Phantom Planet) and Rob Mathes (Panic!, Carly Simon, Loud Reed). The result, Take A Vacation!, features guest vocals and instrumentation by fellow Angelenos Chief , Alex Greenwald, The Like and Jason Boesel (Rilo Kiley). The LP embraces archetypal styles of the 60’s with inflected elements of surf rock, psychedelia, and brit-pop, all of which translate effortlessly into the live setting.

Praise for The Young Veins:

“…equal parts salty and sweet, heavily indebted to the past, unbelievably catchy and quite possibly the best joke you’ll hear all year. In other words, it’s pretty much everything I could ask for in a rock record, and then some.” –

“The Young Veins has legs of its own to stand on. And arteries that are chock-full with the blood of past masters.” – SPIN Magazine
