ABOUT BLAME MY YOUTH:
Before he’d even started Blame My Youth, Sean Van Vleet had damn near done it all. He played the biggest of stages (Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Late Show with David Letterman, etc.), went on tour with massive acts (Death Cab for Cutie, Alkaline Trio, Deerhunter, etc.) and earned international praise with his former indie crew in Empires, and he worked on songs that appeared in major TV shows, video games, iPhone commercials and a whole lot more. So it’s no surprise that as soon as Van Vleet formed Blame My Youth, the rocking quartet immediately saw their first single, “Right Where You Belong,” land as the closing credits theme on the GRAMMY-nominated soundtrack of Bill & Ted Face the Music, with their follow-up, “Fantastic,” picking up millions of streams and hitting the top 30 on the Active Rock radio charts.
After a trio of Danny Wimmer Presents festival appearances announcing their arrival as a band last fall, Blame My Youth is kicking off 2022 with their debut EP, Dance With My Demons (out Feb. 4 via Big Loud Rock). The collection of the band’s six non-Bill & Ted released tracks — plus a bonus version of the title track featuring The Score (Imperial Records) — brings with it the rambunctious singalong tunes Blame My Youth is becoming known for. Dance With My Demons showcases a rebellious mix of Van Vleet’s complex emotional lyricism and unforgettable hooks, with each track further solidifying why many believe the two-year-old band is set to be one of 2022’s breakout artists.
For the time being, Van Vleet and the band will simply continue to work with chart-topping producer Joey Moi (who handled duties for Dance With My Demons) and craft the infectious rock songs that spark in the vocalist’s ever-running mind. With songwriting chops and experience that most “new” artists would kill for and an upbeat EP at a time when everyone could use a little boost, Blame My Youth is primed and ready to take off in a post-pandemic world — and that all starts with Dance With My Demons.
