Vancouver B.C. emo / pop punk band Youth Fountain, formerly Bedroom Talk is the newest name on the Pure Noise roster. This announcement explains why their much anticipated debut full length album "Letters to Our Former Selves" has been stalled with very little explanation. The record is now slated for a 2019 release, but their fans have a brand new music video (watch below) and an EP of their previous releases to enjoy for the time being.
We had the opportunity to chat with Tyler Zanon (vocals/guitar) about signing to Pure Noise.
What does signing to a record label like PN mean to you?
To me it's quite surreal! I personally grew up listening to a lot of the original bands that started out on the label such as The Story So Far, Handguns & Forever Came Calling, so I honestly couldn't be more excited how things have panned out for the project. Very honoured.
What has been the best and most frustrating part of this whole process?
The best part I think bas been just finally announcing the signing! Aha. Everything has been kept on the down-low for a while, leaving fans in the dark about our upcoming album/new material, so it feels super great to finally come out of the gates with a new single & music video letting everyone know that we're now on the Pure Noise team.
I'd say the most frustrating part of the signing was due to the fact we had to change our band name from 'Bedroom Talk' to 'Youth Fountain' - There was an issue with another band being from the SoCal area that went under the same name along with trademarking issues, so it was honestly just in everyones best interest to re-launch the project under a new name with the label.
What do you think the label can offer you that you couldn’t accomplish on your own?
A whole lot of exposure really. It'll be great to reach out to an audience that may not have ever heard of us before or ultimately would have never known we existed. I think our overall sound suits the roster for PN and I'm confident that we'll be able to blend in with the scene the label has to offer. Super exciting stuff!
What are you most looking forward to doing with the band in the future?
Touring mostly. I can't express enough how much I love to travel and be away from home - so being on the road while playing shows every night quite honestly sounds like the greatest thing to me. Wouldn't have it any other way.
If you could tour with any bands on the PN line up, what would the tour poster look like?
Aha, that's an easy one for me.
Less Than Jake
The Story So Far
All bands that made a huge impact on me musically and emotionally growing up.
We want to thank Tyler for taking the time to answer a few questions, and we want to congratulate the guys on this huge announcement. We've been following them for a while now, have recommended a few of their songs on the podcast, and we can't think of another band that deserves this more. Mainly we're just excited to see them touring through the States. Flights to Vancouver aren't the cheapest, but we were close to spending the money to see them live, so this is just as exciting for us as it is for them.
