The Gospel Youth cover Shawn Mendes and it’s so good

Absolutely brilliant stuff from the Brighton rockers. 

The Gospel Youth have released a cover of Shawn Mendes’ There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back which follows their debut album Always Lose, released back in July via Rise Records and Velocity Records. In March next year, the band will also be supporting Tonight Alive on their UK tour.

Talking about the new cover frontman Sam Little says “We totally fell in love with this song when we were on Warped tour this summer and it became a big part of our soundtracks on our ridiculously long drives. When we got back to the UK, Julian produced this full band cover of it and we just really wanted to release it for people to hear. It’s such a feel good song and I hope we did it justice!” The track was recorded and produced was done by Julian Bowen at Portal Studios.

Formed in 2014, the five-piece has previously shared stages with the likes of We Are The Ocean, Mallory Knox, Deaf Havana, Hands Like Houses and many more. In 2016 The Gospel Youth released 12 crowdfunded singles in 12 months, putting their future in the hands of their fans and opening up the opportunity to write month on month about live experiences as they happen.

Here are those dates with Tonight Alive:

6 March – O2 Ritz, Manchester
8 March – Koko, London
10 March – QMU, Glasgow
11 March –  Rock City, Nottingham
