For Immediate Release

January 26, 2023




JANUARY 26, 2023 – Today, critically-acclaimed, multi-platinum selling artist Young The Giant announces a summer tour with Milky Chance of the US and Canada. The tour begins May 30th in Montreal and ends August 31st in Dillon, Colorado with stops at the iconic Rooftop at Pier 17 and Red Rocks Amphitheatre along the way. The tour follows this past fall’s greatly anticipated release of American Bollywood, their first album in four years. The current single “The Walk Home” is rapidly gaining momentum at AAA and Alternative Radio. The tour will also feature special guests TALK and Rosa Linn. See dates below for more information.


“Epic doesn’t even begin to describe American Bollywood. Seismic in scope and intimate in nature, Young the Giant’s fifth studio album is a massive artistic statement; it’s the band’s most ambitious and sprawling project of their career” – Atwood Magazine


Young The Giant and Activist will partner with REVERB to reduce the tour's environmental footprint and engage with fans to take action for people and the planet. Visit for more details.

The four-part album is available everywhere now via AWAL/Jungle Youth Records. Since the last album, Mirror Master, three of the band members became fathers. With lyrics mostly written by the band’s lead singer Sameer Gadhia, the son of Indian immigrants, the album tells the multi-generational saga of the American immigrant, and the origins, exiles, battles, and denouement of reclaiming their collective identity. “This is not just the story of an Indian-American caught in between two worlds,” the band’s Sameer Gadhia previously said, “it’s also our universal search to find meaning in chaos.”


The album was co-produced by John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., Phantogram, Khalid) and the members of Young The Giant.


Milky Chance — the unassuming German duo of childhood friends Clemens Rehbein and Phillipp Dausch — are excited to release their upcoming 4th album. Over their decade-plus as a band, they’ve evolved to survive and thrive in a changing music industry. In 2023, they proudly boast over 10 million monthly Spotify listeners, an enviable touring resume (including festivals like Coachella, Reading & Leeds, and Lollapalooza), and an upcoming schedule of dates that represent the biggest shows of their career.

In addition to the album and tour, Gadhia was recently named to Variety’s 2022 Inclusion Impact Report, the publication’s annual list highlighting advocates for inclusivity who’ve made an impact in the entertainment industry over the past year. In 2020, he launched Point of Origin on SIRIUSXM’s Alt Nation, a platform to amplify voices of color. Each month, he highlights an artist by playing their music on-air with heavy rotation, with each spin including a personalized introduction from Gadhia. Over the next year, Gadhia will expand this campaign as he continues to be a prominent, unwavering voice for equality and change.


Young The Giant was established in 2004 and is comprised of Sameer Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Francois Comtois (drums) and Payam Doostzadeh (bass).
