Stories debut album The Youth To Become is out today via UNFD.
The Youth To Become is a powerful demonstration of what’s possible when talent meets dedication. An album that utilises both poise and punch to forge a pivotal debut album.
Led by the magnetic Morgan Dodson, Stories have created a record that aches with taut pressure. The Youth To Become is a caustic blast of energy created by Dodson, his guitarist brother Nic, guitarist Sean Young, bassist Luke Fuller and drummer Roscoe Frazier who draws influence from post-hardcore, metal, alternative and progressive rock, but never dwells too long on a particular style. And considering they were discovered by Northlane guitarist Josh Smith, who nurtured them from an early stage, that scope makes sense.
With two brothers guiding the creative process – Nic writes the music and Morgan the lyrics – Storieshave evolved into one of the most exciting young heavy bands in the world. “Because we’re brothers, we tend to be on the same sort of track with a lot of our opinions and feelings,” explains Morgan. “This has been the case since I can remember. Since we started writing The Youth To Become, our bond has certainly strengthened more and more, and I definitely feel like we make a good team when working anything creative together.”
