After a year when guitars all but vanished from British primetime radio sets, there’s a need for a band with the brains, brawn and balls to take 2011 and smash it into a brave new frontier of indie rock ‘n’ roll. A few names have already been uttered in hushed, and erm, not so hushed tones. In Stoke’s All The Young, there’s potentially one to drown them all out. It’s a vintage yarn that the Dooley brothers – frontman Ryan and bassist Jack – with drummer Will Heaney and guitarist David Cartwright, are rebirthing for a generation that’s lying twitching on the floor, wailing out for a hit of heady, heavy r ‘n’ r.
All The Young are an alternative rock quartet from Staffordshire, whose thumping sound and lyrical mastery has earnt them a record contract with Warner before their first full length record has even been released. The band consists of, Ryan Dooley (vocals/guitar), Jack Dooley (bass / backing vocals), Dave Cartwright (guitar), Will Heaney (drums).
