Blue Youth (2019)

Regina, SK

This self-professed “prairie noise band” has already reached legendary Sled Island status from their buzzworthy performance at the festival in 2018. Blue Youth released their first LP Dead Forever last year, which honestly captures the raw power of the noise-rock trio, from the thunderous rhythm section to frontman Gage McGuire’s tireless scream. That being said, you should really see it for yourself.
