NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 -- "MIND OVER MATTER," the acclaimed new album from Fueled By Ramen recording group Young The Giant, has made a spectacular debut upon the SoundScan/Billboard 200, entering the chart at #7. With sales in excess of 33,500, the album also came in at a remarkable #2 on the "Rock Album" chart (surpassed only by Lorde who performed and won at Sunday's GRAMMY Awards).
"MIND OVER MATTER" is highlighted by the hit single, "It's About Time," which is currently ascending the top 10 at Alternative radio outlets nationwide, climbing to #6 this week. In addition, the track's companion video -- directed by acclaimed visual artist David Vincent Wolf -- is fast approaching 1 million views on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO6LJUyNA0M.
Young The Giant will celebrate "MIND OVER MATTER" with an epic North American tour, set to get underway February 4th at Ventura, California's Ventura Theatre and then travel through mid-April (see below itinerary). Accompanying Young The Giant on the trek will be special guests Cayucas (February 4th-28th) and F-Stop/Atlantic recording artist Vance Joy (March 1st-April 10th).

Young The Giant -- who has also just been announced among the line-up for the Firefly Music Festival, slated for June 19th -- recently heralded "MIND OVER MATTER" with a number of high-profile TV appearances including TBS' Conan and an electrifying live performance on the famed outdoor stage of ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! The set, which includes stellar renditions of both "It's About Time" and the "MIND OVER MATTER" album track, "Crystallized," can be viewed now at www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLPOVSQSnwvdd9KK6zBkEkDXqrVsyUdbs6&v=jIB3oOXtbAU.
Produced by Justin Meldal Johnsen (Paramore, M83, Tegan & Sara), "MIND OVER MATTER" has already earned a range of critical applause, with USA Today noting in a three-out-of-four starred rave that Young The Giant's "...twin-guitar lines, buzzy synths and wide-open melodies fit together in a way that makes perfect sense." Entertainment Weekly awarded the album a B+ rating, while Relix commended the album's "dazzlingly immersive textures and eclectic songcraft," further decreeing, "'MIND OVER MATTER' is a major creative leap."
Young The Giant has quickly established itself as one of the most exciting new bands in recent memory. Buoyed by hit singles including "Apartment" and the RIAA-gold certified smashes, "My Body" and "Cough Syrup," the Southern California-based quintet's 2010 full length debut "YOUNG THE GIANT" was a breakthrough success earning widespread acclaim from the likes of SPIN, The New Yorker, and the Wall Street Journal, which hailed the album as "a pop masterpiece with well-crafted songs, surprising arrangements and soaring vocal harmonies."
Young The Giant spent much of 2011 and 2012 traveling the globe, with sold out headline tours, top-billing on mtvU's inaugural "Woodies Tour," and show-stopping appearances at such festivals as Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, and Lollapalooza. A dynamic and distinctive live act, the band also made a series of major TV performances, spanning ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and NBC's TODAY and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to 2011's MTV Video Music Awards and their own edition of MTV Unplugged.
