Youth Fountain Release New Video “Helpless / Letters To Our Former Selves”
Youth Fountain has shared a brand new music video in anticipation of their debut full-length album, Letters To Our Former Selves. Fans can watch “Helpless / Letters To Our Former Selves” now on Alternative Press. Letters To Our Former Selves is set to be released on March 8, 2019 via Pure Noise Records and can be pre-ordered now at http://smarturl.it/YFLTOFS.
Guitarist Tyler Zanon shares: “‘Helpless / Letters to Our Former Selves’ are the two intro tracks that I always felt set the vibe, pacing & overall tone of what album stands for and means to me. ‘Helpless’ which contains a few simple lyrics; representing yearning of the past – to commemorate on a given situation that one might have ruined and being able to acknowledge it all, but still having that looming desire to turn back time and fix things.”
He adds: “The continuation of the title track ‘Letters to Our Former Selves’ is what I’ve always felt (lyrically) as a mental note on the person I had been in my early teenage years. I wrote the song when I was 18 as everything was changing & falling apart in life – I thought to re-record it for this album knowing it could fit in with the rest of the songs we had.
As for the concept of the music video – having the ‘floating window panes’ I always felt tied in nicely with the record, or more specifically these two songs. Hearing & playing them now, I’m sort of able to recollect on the person I was or have been. I like to think the symbolism of a ‘window’ is an appropriate representation of looking back on things & having that ability of self-reflection.”
Youth Fountain is a two piece Emo / Pop Punk band based in Vancouver B.C. Canada featuring members Cody Muraro (Vocals) & Tyler Zanon (Guitar/Vocals). The band has been around since early 2013, starting out as a solo act/musical outlet created by founding member Zanon. After a few years of having potential song ideas and demos tracked, he recruited Muraro to guest on the debut song “Grinding Teeth.” The chemistry worked out in a positive manor, so the two decided to undergo the project together moving forward.
Since the official release of the two track EP Grinding Teeth back in May 2017, both members have continued writing, recording & producing new music in anticipation of the release of their full length debut album along side playing a handful of shows across western CanadaThe band released their self-titled Pure Noise Records debut EP in July 2018 and hit the road the following fall, touring the full US and cross Canada in support of the record.
Letters To Our Former Selves, the first full-length from Youth Fountain, will be released on March 8th via Pure Noise Records and is now available for pre-order at smarturl.it/YFLTOFS.
