Youth in Revolt is a New Jersey pop/rock band that consists of Tanner Allen (vocals), Kenny Torres (bass/ vocals), Chris Coletti (guitar), Alex Ramos (guitar), and Arvin Sarathy (drums.)
With a new lineup and their debut album coming out, fans have been excited for the return of the band. They recently partnered with Rock Sound to talk about their latest track, “Not Giving Up.”
The song is one of the band’s most personal tracks on their upcoming debut album The Broken. “Not Giving Up” focuses on the aftermath of an unhealthy relationship, where both individuals realize they could have said and done things differently.
Kenny shared saying, “‘Not Giving Up’ is a very personal song to me actually. Right before we started recording this song I woke up to a call that my ex-girlfriend had died, and we weren’t on the best of terms so it fucked me up hard. There were so many things I wish I could’ve apologized for and things I wish I could’ve said.”
He continued saying, “To this day I’ll always feel responsible in some way, because words have an impact on people, and you say hurtful words to people when you’re immature and don’t know how to handle a breakup. It really makes you wonder and say, “What if I didn’t say that?” or “What if I said this instead and didn’t stress this person out?” This song was about our relationship and how everything was just fucked up, and how I wish I could’ve been a better person, really. I’d say this is the most personal song on the record to me.”
