Youth In Revolt are returning with new music, with the band’s debut album, The Broken, out January 20, 2017 with Outerloop Records. Today, the band released a new song called “Not Giving Up.” Listen to it below.
“‘Not Giving Up‘ is a very personal song to me actually. Right before we started recording this song I woke up to a call that my ex-girlfriend had died, and we weren’t on the best of terms so it fucked me up hard. There were so many things I wish I could’ve apologized for and things I wish I could’ve said. To this day I’ll always feel responsible in some way, because words have an impact on people, and you say hurtful words to people when you’re immature and don’t know how to handle a breakup. It really makes you wonder and say, “What if I didn’t say that?” or “What if I said this instead and didn’t stress this person out?” This song was about our relationship and how everything was just fucked up, and how I wish I could’ve been a better person, really. I’d say this is the most personal song on the record to me.” – Kenny Torres
