Rarely does an artist come along such as YUNGBLUD, who has undeniably become Gen-Z’s rock n’ roll poster child. Fearlessly advocating for the weirdos, freaks and the marginalized in the world, from the ground up, YUNGBLUD has amassed legions of dedicated fans from all over the world, who flock to his sold-out shows each night and scream every word to his songs as if their lives depend on it. With co-signs from rock legends such as Mick Jagger, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Jones and Dave Grohl, YUNGBLUD’S trajectory is looking brighter and more exciting than ever.
Currently, on his sold-out LIFE ON MARS European tour, before heading to Australia, New Zealand, and Japan this summer, YUNGBLUD will return to North American shores this fall for select dates as well as festival appearances at Austin City Limits, Louder Than Life, Riot Fest, and Firefly Music Festival.

Earlier this month, YUNGBLUD released his latest single “Memories” ft. WILLOW [LISTEN HERE]. The track, which surpassed 1 million streams in its first week, was accompanied by an official music video directed by Colin Tilley [WATCH HERE]. Speaking on the song, YUNGBLUD revealed: “This song is about letting go of past traumas you may have experienced and voicing them to the world. There’s something freeing about turning painful memories from your past into lessons for your future – I want people to scream this song out and it be cathartic. It’s about coming together and shedding pain, turning it into positive energy and sharing the burden with each other.”
In March, YUNGBLUD released “The Funeral” alongside a music video featuring Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne [WATCH HERE}. “The Funeral” has accumulated more than 14.8 million combined video and global streams and continues to grow. He performed the song on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden [WATCH HERE].
