Hailing from Portland, Young Turks returns to Fest for their second year in a row.
Formed in the rainy winter of 2010, Young Turks carved a niche for themselves with their debut 7" "Halfhearted" (Arctic Circle Pit Records). A charged effort of fast riffs and pounding drums laid a path where fans of Suicide File and Defeater could meet.
After several tours in support of "Halfhearted", the addition of Mason on drums, and their signing with Animal Style Records, Young Turks are rapidly approaching the release of their debut 12" this summer. Building on the EP, new songs like "Knife Club" and "Priceline" give new depth to the band. Emotions harnessed and honed. The end result is furious and focused.
