BLOOD Youth will play the Key Club in Leeds on March 2 to promote new single Keep You Alive and second album Starve.

Frontman Kaya Tarsus said the inspiration for the song came about with the realisation that at some point in their lives everyone would go through something traumatic.

Kaya said: “It will stay with us forever. Life is full of heartbreak, death and loss.

“Events that we have never been taught how to deal with, but we all have to face. I’ve found that the longer we think and dwell on trauma, the longer we keep it alive within us.”

“Keep You Alive is the darkest and most diverse song we have ever written as a band. It shows a side of us that has never been seen before, something that we are very excited about.

“The video was filmed and directed by Zak Pinchin, who produced a video that perfectly encapsulates what the song is about.”
