Young The Giant Releases American Bollywood On Vinyl




March 1, 2023 – Today, critically-acclaimed, multi-platinum selling band Young The Giant releases its fifth album, 2022’s American Bollywood, on vinyl. Alongside the standard vinyl, there are multiple design variants, including a Spotify Fans First vinyl edition. Spotify Fans First is an initiative offered as a special “thank you” to superfans for being one of the band’s top listeners on the platform. The unique colored edition of the vinyl is only available to this group of top fans. The standard vinyl release is available on the band’s webstore here alongside a restock of American Bollywood-themed shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and more.

American Bollywood, was the first Young The Giant album in four years with its current single “The Walk Home” steadily climbing up the charts with it ranking #25 at Alternative and #33 at AAA radio.

“Epic doesn’t even begin to describe American Bollywood. Seismic in scope and intimate in nature, Young the Giant’s fifth studio album is a massive artistic statement; it’s the band’s most ambitious and sprawling project of their career” – Atwood Magazine

To support American Bollywood, the band is touring the US and Canada this summer with opening act Milky Chance. Tickets for the tour, which begins May 30th in Montreal and ends August 31st in Dillon, Colorado are selling briskly with shows at the Rooftop at Pier 17 in New York and Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside of Denver sold out in days. Some dates on the run will also feature special guests TALK and Rosa Linn. See dates below for more information. For full list of dates and ticket info visit the band’s website HERE.


Young The Giant and Activist will partner with REVERB to reduce the tour’s environmental footprint and engage with fans to take action for people and the planet. Visit for more details.

The four-part album is available everywhere now via AWAL/Jungle Youth Records. Since the last album, Mirror Master, three of the band members became fathers. With lyrics mostly written by the band’s lead singer Sameer Gadhia, the son of Indian immigrants, the album tells the multi-generational saga of the American immigrant, and the origins, exiles, battles, and denouement of reclaiming their collective identity. “This is not just the story of an Indian-American caught in between two worlds,” the band’s Sameer Gadhia previously said, “it’s also our universal search to find meaning in chaos.”

The album was co-produced by John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., Phantogram, Khalid) and the members of Young The Giant.
