Your favorite U.K alternative hip hop trio Young Fathers are hitting Australian shores in late December and touring throughout January. Young Fathers was formed in Edinburgh, Scotland and consists of Graham “G” Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi, and Kayus Bankole. The inspiration for the group’s name comes from the coincidence that each of the members share their biological fathers’ names.
After winning the illustrious Mercury Prize (U.K best album of the year) for their 2014 debut album Dead, the boys took no time off and went straight back into work mode. Earlier this year they released their second studio album White Men Are Black Men Too which was met with positive critical reception, scoring an 83/100 on Metacritic.
Now the Young Fathers are gearing up to headline shows at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory and Melbourne’s Corner Hotel in early 2016, as well as their already announced appearances at the Falls Festival, Field Day, and Southbound.
