Cagliari / London based melodic punk rock powerhouse SECOND YOUTH (former members of Gold Kids, previous records on Anchors Aweigh Recors, Demons Run Amok Entertainment) are back with a new EP called “Juvenile”, and we’re thrilled to give you the first watch of their new video for their song “Zero”! Watch below and expect an April 12th release via IndieBox Music (Italy), Epidemic Records (Europe, pre-order HERE) and Paper and Plastick Records (USA, pre-order HERE)!
“Zero” “Juvenile” “Morons” “Blue”, 4 very inspired songs, show how this band is getting the most of their actual second youth. Awareness, romanticism, great story telling. The four piece is no less than bigger names in the genre. Their melodies will disarm you and hit you right in the heart.
Here’s what the band had to say about both the EP and the new video:
In the last 12 months, since releasing our debut full length on indiebox records, we have worked hard to think about our sound and where we can go as a modern punk band where it feels like everything has been done. So, we continued to write songs that we want to hear on our stereo. Juvenile is 4 tracks that are all very different from each other, where each one evokes a different feeling. We don’t want to keep writing the same song over and over again and juvenile shows that. Zero, the shortest song on the record, is a back-to-basics, catchy punk rock tune that displays our love for sing-a-alongs and a story to tell.
The video was an idea and huge effort of our very creative friends which we are very lucky to have in our circle. We hope it is as fun to watch as it was to make. And if you don’t like the song, maybe you’ll see us in your local cinema one day soon.

More about SECOND YOUTH:
Second Youth was born in 2015 thanks to the union of Dick Smith and Andrè Suergiu, two best friends and tour mates for years. It all began when the two spent a night remembering all the bands they grew up with, musically and personally, in the 90s and early 2000
They decided to get in the studio and record the songs they wished they had played when they were younger, hence the name of the band, Second Youth.
This band is inspired by that time of your life when nothing matters but the music coming out of your stereo. Veterans in life and on the road, you’ll find them playing their signature melodic and catchy punk rock, filled with sing-alongs like it used to be in the 90s.
Their first EP “Glass Roof” came out worldwide digitally via Uncle M Records and and vinyl via Anchors Aweigh Records. Thanks to this release they shared stage with bands such as Flatliners, Such Gold, Slander.
They put out two singles / videos in the Summer 2017, “On and On” and “You Haunt Me”.
“Dear Road” their first full length, came out on March 9th 2018 thanks to the efforts of Indiebox Music and Demons Run Amok. The release was initially promoted by the first single “Friday Night”, which came out as a video on Youtube and audio on Spotify and Itunes. “Dear Road” lead Second Youth to appearances at some of the best Italian festivals, with bands such as Antiflag, Derozer, Dropkick Murphys, Agnostic Front, Booze and Glory.
