Hold on there is more! Blood Youth have also announced a headline tour kicking off in Southampton on 1 March 2019.

Blood Youth frontman Kaya Tarsus talking about the explains the inspiration behind Keep You Alive “At some point in our lives we will all go through something traumatic. It will change us and stays with us forever. Life is full of heartbreak, death and loss. Events that we have never been taught how to deal with, but we all have to face at some point. I’ve found that the longer we think and dwell on trauma, the longer we keep it alive within us. Keep You Alive is the darkest and most diverse song we have ever written as a band. It shows a side of us that has never been seen before, something that we are very excited about.”

Talking about the track ominous new video Tarsus says “The video was filmed and directed by Zak Pinchin, who we have worked with a few times before. He did an incredible job and produced a video that perfectly encapsulates what the song is about.”
