Young the Giant interview in today's Seattle Gay News
Proving their bigness, Young the Giant are currently on a 46-date sold out national tour. The NorCal pop-rock band, whose second hit single "Cough Syrup" was featured in an emotional scene on Glee's mid-season finale, has grown leaps and bounds in the past year alone.
In December 2011, Seattle Gay News sat down with drummer Francois Comtois backstage at a holiday show. Part of the interview was included in our "Best of Music 2011" issue, and a second portion of the interview prints in this week's edition (April 6 street date). In the interview, Comtois states his opinion on gay marriage and tells us how many pairs of socks and underwear he packs before going on tour.
Young the Giant performs this weekend in Seattle (April 7, Moore Theatre). The concert is sold out.
