Harrogate, UK hardcore heavyweights Blood Youth have revealed the video for ‘Reason To Stay’, the first single to be taken from their highly-anticipated debut album ‘Beyond Repair’, out now via Rude Records. The single was premiered on BBC Radio 1 ‘s Rock Show.

Speaking about the track, vocalist Kaya Tarsus explains: “Reason to Stay is about wanting to detach yourself from a very emotionally attached person. That feeling when you can’t end a relationship because you’re not sure what it would do to that other person, the resentment you naturally feel towards them eventually forces you to leave.”

Tarsus continues:

“We wanted the Reason to Stay video to show what a relationship like this is like, two people feeling like they are emotionally tied together, a battle of many different thoughts and feelings that eventually leads to somebody being left behind. We created it all with Zak Pinchin who has worked with us on every BY video so far!”

Following critically acclaimed EPs ‘Inside My Head’ and ‘Closure’, Blood Youth’s debut full-length ‘Beyond Repair’ sees the trio expand their arsenal across an album.

“These songs are about how we deal with anger in the modern age,” reveals Tarsus. “When I was writing the lyrics I became fascinated with heartbreak and how everybody deals with this trauma in their own way. Many tend to numb the pain in an attempt to forget, instead of facing it head on, this is something I am guilty of myself. We were aiming to create something very aggressive but very real. With Beyond Repair, I believe we have achieved just that.”
