In early 2014, multi-instrumentalists Brian Stewart and Alex Grant parted ways with their previous outfit, Analog Anthem, to form a new indie pop project — Youth Warrant. Released in March 2014, their debut 3 song EP “Strange Paradise”, anchored by a single of the same name, set them on their new direction as a group.

In 2015, the duo moved from Baltimore, MD to southern California to solidify the direciton of Youth Warrant and to seek other musicians and influences to round out the project. They soon met Matt Aukerman (a Tampa, Florida native and San Diego transplant), who joined them on guitar, backing vocals, and more. The three got right to work building a new project studio in the Ocean Beach neighborhood to write and record. By mid 2015, they had amassed a vast collection of new material.

On October 6, the trio will be releasing their new single, “Shake”, produced and engineered by Youth Warrant and mixed by their previous mix engineer, John Grant. This single ushers in their new era as a trio, as Californians, and as a new and improved indie pop outfit looking to spread their music with enthusiastic live performances and tightly produced recordings. With well-crafted, smart pop songs that reach a wide audience, they look to spend the rest of 2015 writing and releasing music and hit the road to bring them to life in 2016.
