Youth Fountain is one of the most emotive and extraordinary songwriters currently making their trade in the pop-punk scene. With bare-bones honesty and brutal deliveries, Tyler Zanon is everything that makes the genre so remarkable and raw. And they have continued to develop their current era with an acoustic EP.

That EP is going to be released in full on May 9th via Pure Noise Records. It will feature stripped-back versions of four tracks from the 2021 full-length Keepsakes & Reminders.

Tyler had this to say about it:

This acoustic EP is the second volume to the first one I did myself, but this time I got to work with my good friend and producer/engineer from Keepsakes & Reminders; Tim Creviston. He really helped everything shine and brought the EP to life and I’m grateful we got to tackle the whole thing together through 2022.”

It also features two new songs as well.

One of them is “Gut Feeling”, which is brand new and is as quintessential as it gets. Speaking candidly about life and what it all means, and how you can cope with every existential thought that creeps into your head, it’s a proper goosebump-inducer.

Tyler had this to say about it:

“The song “Gut Feeling” was written right after I came back from tour in the spring of ‘22 – I was feeling super existential, like everything I’ve done in my life hasn’t mattered and once we’re all gone and the sun explodes and wipes out all of what we know, just questioning all my life choices with how I’ve lived up to this point. There is also some lyrical content in the song about a friend of mine who passed away from an overdose back in 2021. I kept having dreams about him and felt like I needed to dedicate the song to him in a way.”

And then there is “Speaking In Tongues”, which was released as a full track last year. But unlike the original, which rips at you with ferocity, the stripped-back version is much more thoughtful.
