Welsh rock band The Dirty Youth are thrilled to unveil the long-awaited video to their first single in two years, the dramatic roar that is 'Alive'. A stadium-sized anthem, 'Alive' is a jaw-droppingly assured return from one of Britain's most exciting live bands, and the video is a big-budget performance epic that demonstrates the sheer ambition and self-belief coursing through the band.
Since their well-received 2011 debut album 'Red Light Fix', The Dirty Youth have been building up a sizeable army of fans, blown away by their energetic stage show and killer songs, and entranced by lead singer and flame-haired siren, Danni Monroe. In fact that fanbase has delivered nearly 3 million views for their debut single 'Fight' alone.
Now with the release of 'Alive' and a major tour across Europe with fellow Brits Glamour of the Kill and Heaven's Basement, The Dirty Youth are back to claim their rightful place at the forefront of the UK rock scene - and, in Danni, unleash the next great British rock star.
Their forthcoming album 'Gold Dust' sees the band take a huge leap forward, delivering an all-killer, no-filler beast of an album stuffed full of hooks, choruses, riffs and downright sing-along-a-song-writing prowess that will see their name in lights across the UK and beyond.
The Dirty Youth will be unveiling songs from the new album on tour. Catch them live at
