In Chrome Cactus, The Young have created
a HUGE sounding, timeless rock album that
reinforces and revitalizes everything that is
great about American Rock Music in 2014.
Taking influence from early ZZ Top, Link Wray,
Lungfish, Dead Moon - Chrome Cactus is a ball
of power and controlled feedback disguised as
ten of the catchiest songs you'll hear this year.
Chrome Cactus is a far darker version of Austin's
The Young than ever before. The breezy
optimism of their earlier albums has been
switched out for sinister, creeping dread in both
the lyrics and music.
The rhythm section of drummer Ryan Maloney
and new bassist Lucas Wedow drive a heavy
foundation for guitarists Hans Zimmerman
and Kyle Edwards, who have reached dizzying
new heights. Expertly produced by fellow
sonic assassin Tim Green (Nation of Ulysses,
The Fucking Champs), Chrome Cactus is the
moment where Zimmerman's vocal delivery
is perfectly matched with the skillful, intuitive
interplay, which at this point is now fully realized.
