YOUNG CULTURE RELEASE NEW SINGLE, “GOOD KARMA”

Equal Vision Records and New York-based pop-punk trio Young Culture are excited to present “Good Karma,” a song co-written by Paul Marc Rousseau from Silverstein and the band’s second offering of 2022 that follows the upbeat and punchy “Tattoo.” “Good Karma,” whose melancholy rush of high-octane energy, looks forward to the future with an extra burst of confidence. “This song is a love letter to New York City,” Alex Magnan of Young Culture explains. “A place where everyone can go to be someone and no one, about investing who you are in a place and sometimes getting nothing in return.” Stream “Good Karma” on YouTube HERE and on all platforms HERE.

Young Culture have also announced its co-headline tour with Super American along with dates supporting State Champs in select North American markets during October and November. Information on tickets can be found HERE, and a full listing of dates can be found below. 

Just over a year on from the release of their EP Godspeed — which includes “Hum,” Young Culture’s feel-good song about the joys of being in love — the Albany trio have returned with two brand new tracks in 2022 titled “Tattoo” and “Good Karma.” 

Both are dramatic and catchy surges of unabashed emotion, but there are shadows lurking within their foundations. Recorded with Anton DeLost (State Champs, Silverstein, Mayday Parade) at his studio in Toronto, it feels like the trio — vocalist Alex Magnan and guitarists Gabe Pietrafesa and Troy Burchett — are coming down from that lovestruck high of a year ago, especially on these two new singles. “‘Godspeed’ was kind of a love EP,” Pietrafesa says, “This isn’t, but thankfully there was no real emotional turmoil as far as our relationships went or anything like that.” 

Interestingly, these two songs are the first time the band haven’t worked with State Champs’ Derek DiScanio, but they nevertheless build on the foundation that he’s helped them lay down since the band formed in 2016. “Our ambition, work ethic and overall drive has never been higher,” says Pietrafesa. “Even if you’re coming at this as a first time listener, I think you’re going to be excited to join the family that is Young Culture.” 

“I really think this is something that you don’t want to miss out on,” adds Magnan, “so now’s the opportunity to tap into it. We don’t want Young Culture to be a moment. We want it to be a movement.”
