  1.  Worked tirelessly playing local shows around their home in Orange County.
  2.  Released an EP that gained the watchful eye of legendary rock station KROQ.
  3. Signed to Roadrunner records.
  4. Crafted twelve captivating alt-rock songs for their self-titled debut album.
  5. Had said debut produced by Multi-Grammy winner Joe Chicarelli. (U2, The White Stripes, Counting Crows)
  6. Debut album climbed the charts alongside critical praise from the national and international press.
  7. Played on Later With Jool’s Holland.

Lucky for us, that tour begins here in Columbus at the LC Pavilion on Tuesday August 30, 2011.  Tickets are $49.00 when purchased in advance, and $52.00 the day of the show.  The fuse has been lit on the career of Young the Giant.  Get tickets now, so you can say you saw them when…
