The Haunted Youth from Belgium, are the brainchild of Joachim Liebens. His beautiful songs focus on his sad, teenage years and at the very essence of being young and hopeful. His debut album, the dream-pop Dawn Of The Freak (2022), strike a chord with fans of Slowdive, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and DIIV.
Their early singles “Coming Home”, “Gone” and “Broken” attracted attention in Belgium and The Netherlands and soon after, UK and USA followed. “Teen Rebel” become an indie anthem and was described as a song “you think you’ve known all your life, like a close friend that wrap his arms around you”, while the more recent “I Feel Like Shit And I Wanna Die” seems destined to become the next, big indie hit.
The Haunted Youth’s performance at Release Athens X SNF Nostos will mark their first visit in Greece, during an extensive tour with shows at major festivals like Rock Werchter, Pink pop and Sziget. One thing is certain: many more will follow!
