‘Bout Time: Young The Giant announce Home Of The Strange tour with Ra Ra Riot


We’ll admit to losing track of Young The Giant in recent years. The California band, who delivered one of the better songs of the decade in “Cough Syrup” back in 2010, released sophomore record Mind Over Matter in 2014, but it failed to really stick with us quite like their eponymous debut.

This summer, Young The Giant are back with a new record, Home of the Strange, out August 12 on Fueled By Ramen, and will follow a handful of summer one-off appearances with a full-on fall tour with Ra Ra Riot.

The Home Of The Strange tour kicks off September 6 in Cleveland and wraps October 27 in Vancouver. Along the way, Young The Giant and Ra Ra Riot stop at the House of Blues in Boston on September 18. That’s worthy of some Sharpie circles on the ol’ desk calendar.
