Youth Mass pride themselves or their riffs, on their melodies, and on their ability to deliver a unique, guitar based driven sound during their live shows. The boys have been around since 2010, and every year since seems to have topped the previous.
They’ve released one EP and one Album to date, their debut album gaining strong reviews, as too their live shows (see some reviews below). At the moment, they have their latest EP recorded and due to be released in March 2017, the first single off it #SomeBodyHelpMe was released December 9th 2016.

The band is the brainchild of 4 friends of Trim, and was formed in 2010, and in more recent times have been joined by expert musician Gavin Mulhall, from Celbridge.
The boys have released an album and an EP, both to much acclaim, and their live shows especially come in for very favourable reviews.
