Youth Killed It have played with bands Slaves, Wonk Unit and toured with the likes of the The LaFontaines, MassMattiks as well as making an appearance at the Camden Rocks, Isle of Wight and Teddy Rocks Festivals. They signed to Rude Records in late 2016 after having released two counterpart EPs, Welcome To The Sad Boys Club and Welcome To The Happy Girls Club.In 2017 the band compiled the two EP’s to release their debut album ‘Modern Bollotics’ which saw single ‘Popstar’ get play-listed and shortly followed this up with stand-alone single ‘Islands’. The band swiftly followed up their debut with the full length LP ‘What’s So Great, Britain?’ in 2018.
In June 2019, guitarist Carlos Montero left the band and was replaced by Danny de Ara Torres, and drummer Ben Ford also left the band to be replaced by Joel Mullin. The band have since moved forward as a four piece, and have parted ways with Rude Records to focus on being an independent band and releasing singles.
