Young The Giant was formed in 2004 in California in the United States. Sameer Gadhia, Jacob Tilley, Eric Cannata, Payam Doostzadeh and Francois Comtois are the current members of the band. Young the Giant was signed by Roadrunner Records in 2009 and digitally released their self-titled debut album in 2010. The band were formerly known as The Jakes. They changed their name in December 2010. The Young the Giant CD was released on the 25th of January 2011.
The band is scheduled to perform at the 2011 Sasquatch! Music Festival at the Gorge in Washington State in the United States in May 2011. Foo Fighters, Death Cab For Cutie, The Flaming Lips, Flogging Molly and the Cold War Kids are also lined up for the festival. Their first single My Body was released in late 2010. Thanks to South Africa’s only rock radio station, Tuks FM, I have been introduced to this awesome tune. The song first received airplay on the Bang Bang Breakfast with @RobForbesDJ and @pjvanrooyen. Young the Giant could be one of the biggest bands of 2011 (if you ask me).
This the music video for My Body (which was released in middle February 2011 and is directed by Justin Francis):
