YUNGBLUD’s debut graphic novel, ‘The Twisted Tales Of The Ritalin Club’ took the pop culture world by storm last year, selling out within days of its initial release, with fans scrambling to grab a copy. Using his YouTube show, the young English artist announced his return to comics with the sequel: ‘Weird Times at Quarry Banks University’.
YUNGBLUD has shared the video for his new single ‘Weird!’ (Locomotion / Interscope Records). Directed by YUNGBLUD and Tom Pallant, the video was shot with minimal production by a three-person crew, all of whom are quarantining together. The video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU, MTV International territories and on the Viacom Times Square billboards.
YUNGBLUD will perform a concert in Los Angeles that will be live streamed on his YouTube channel on Monday, March 16, at 7:00 AM PDT. “Shit’s Weird Keep Calm and Carry On” will feature YUNGBLUD performing with his full band. In between songs, he’ll field questions from fans living in countries where he has had to postpone shows due to precautions being taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
YUNGBLUD announced the underrated youth North American spring tour. In 2019, the U.K. artist sold out all of his dates in the U.S., Europe and the U.K. – totalling more than 150 shows. He’ll kick off the 2020 headline run on April 21 at Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA – after performing both weekends at Coachella. The tour will take him up the West Coast to Canada, throughout the Midwest, and down the Eastern seaboard before wrapping up on May 15 at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. See below for itinerary.
