View Detail

About The Album: 9 songs about (in no particular order) — discordant living, misrepresentation, how nothing nothing can be, life, afterlife, love and love “after hours.” These are pop songs. These are rock songs. These are art songs.

Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes began right where TVOTR’s 2003 debut EP Young Liars left off, propelled into uncharted sonic territory. Undeniably catchy songs with incredible production, arrangements, champion crooning (including stunning a cappella perfomances) and a host of extras that makes this a seriously solid album.

Praise From The Press:
… their songs politicize emotion in stinging turns of phrase, over a beat that makes you want to get up and dance. — Interview Magazine //
The experience is baptismal. — XLR8R Magazine //
What’s most frightening is that, mighty as Desperate Youth… is, their real stone killer is probably yet to come. — Uncut //
It’s an arty, impressionistic and sometimes oddly beautiful album steeped in the fear, paranoia and pain of a post-Sept. 11 world, a quite catharsis couched in an utterly novel yet strangely simple musical language. — Washington Post //
