Built upon a foundation of intricate songwriting and frenetic live performances, Young Alive was founded in early 2012 by vocalist/guitarist Robert Parks, vocalist/guitarist Brian Staples, guitarist/vocalist Kyle Kowalsky, bassist Colin Dinnie, and drummer Pat McDonald.
After releasing their debut EP American Gentlemen, recorded at Sonic Environments in Bloomfield, CT with Jeff Weed (Trivium, Kiss), Young Alive embarked on a mission to make themselves known as can't-miss musical prospects. American Gentlemen has garnered attention from the likes of AbsolutePunk.net, Highlight Magazine, Unsigned & Unleashed, and Under The Gun Review. The EP's eponymous single, "American Gentlemen" has also been featured in regular rotation on Boston Accents (WFNX.com), Boston Emissions (100.7 FM WZLX), and The Eagle (97.1 FM KEGL).
Even in their short time together, Young Alive have also been fortunate enough to share the stage with Anberlin, Foxy Shazam, Hit The Lights, Murder By Death, With The Punches, and many more. The band have been writing and performing throughout the northeast U.S., and are working toward releasing new music throughout 2013.
