Deathwish Inc. signs YAITW (Young And In The Way)

The folks at Deathwish Inc. have announced the latest addition to their roster in the form of YAITW (Young And In The Way), a "blackened metal/crust hybrid" from North Carolina. Formed three years ago, the band will soon release a new full-length titled When Life Comes To Death. More news should be issued shortly, but in the meantime, you can hear a track from the band's recent split EP with Withdrawal here:

anonymous 5/3/2013 9:27:42 AM

anonymous 5/3/2013 9:52:33 AM

Blackened burnt toast crust music that has been left in oven too long but is still good.

Good band, could have called this signing from miles away after listening to I Am Not What I Am

"anonymous 1 hour ago EX MEMBERS OF A CLOSING SKYLINE LOL" Best post I've seen in a long time.

anonymous 5/3/2013 11:12:48 AM

Overrated band.

anonymous 5/3/2013 11:19:32 AM

Good for these guys, awesome band.

Hibuddywazup 5/3/2013 1:04:03 PM

gays with bad taste are not stoked.

anonymous 5/3/2013 1:11:31 PM

They really wish they were kvlt. Shit band.

anonymous 5/3/2013 4:10:10 PM

Band is full of goo experts.

anonymous 5/3/2013 7:48:57 PM

gays from charlotte that pretend they didn't lose their shit when emmure came to town two years ago. True kvlt lol. fck this band.

anonymous 5/3/2013 8:56:05 PM

love the label but this band is full of crust fund fake as fck pleasures who live in a nice 3 story house, they arent kvlt, they arent true, they are trend riding gays as is the band narratives or as they should be called YAITW jr. fck this band, fck their fans, fck charlotette nc. pure gayry

brassknuckleromance 5/3/2013 8:57:41 PM

I have tried to get into these guys, but I cant. maybe when I sell their LPs on ebay someone else will love them like I wanted to, but congrats for them. I think this is the first NC band for people to be this excited about since PFC/Undying called it quits, and BTBAM is still pretty damn good, as is Just Die and Old Flings.

anonymous 5/4/2013 12:26:54 AM

bands that have members that celebrate and collect natzi memorabilia aren't cool.

anonymous 5/4/2013 7:24:06 AM

You spelled Nazi wrong....dumbass

anonymous 5/4/2013 7:54:08 AM

These guys have their heads so far up their asses. Try and talk to them at a show and see what happens. Good music on record but boring as fck live. Maybe Deathwish will give them enough money to play more than NC and VA. Dumb call on DWI's part.

anonymous 5/4/2013 8:30:02 AM

Killer band doing new things. I know most of these shit talking comments are not true. fck you lamb goat internet thugs, get a life.

anonymous 5/4/2013 9:18:40 AM

FANBASBN (fck all new bands and stupid band names)

anonymous 5/4/2013 11:27:54 AM

Killer band doing new things. You ARE kidding, right???

anonymous 5/4/2013 6:11:24 PM

Jerry Garcia is turning over in his grave. This in one of the most unimaginative rock band names. Do a web search for "Old and in the way." Check the goddamned dates, dummies.

anonymous 5/4/2013 8:05:43 PM

Deathwish, purveyors of trying to bring underground genre's 10 years late, in attempt to make them trendy. c*ntbags

xheartfeltx 5/4/2013 8:20:39 PM

narratives rules, yaitw rules good move

anonymous 5/5/2013 7:35:48 AM

they make good music but they are total douchebags. i've tried more than once to start a conversation with them while they were playing my area and each time they were a bunch of cool guys. but that seems to be the same kind of interaction everyone has with them.

anonymous 5/5/2013 10:51:21 AM

Separate the art from the artist you fcking whiny pussies.

anonymous 5/5/2013 4:42:32 PM

"they make good music but they are total douchebags. i've tried more than once to start a conversation with them while they were playing my area and each time they were a bunch of cool guys. but that seems to be the same kind of interaction everyone has with them." that makes no sense

anonymous 5/5/2013 8:50:30 PM

Personally think they will fit in with the current Deathwish roster.

anonymous 5/5/2013 9:48:51 PM

van flip just kidding they don't tour tumblr flip

anonymous 5/7/2013 3:50:55 PM

Watain fantasy

anonymous 5/8/2013 12:49:58 AM

Narratives suck, young and in the way suck, Dustin's a gay. Lanterns on stage are gay. Savannah will never love you again. Evil c*nt. Maybe this means they'll play some where other than tremont and backyards.

anonymous 5/10/2013 1:30:16 AM

Who remembers Think Back? Because I remember xICED OUTx.

anonymous 5/10/2013 1:43:32 AM

legalize weed and fck yaitw theyre f*kn gay they literally changed their profile picture on their facebook page to the one equal sign thingy except in the equal sign thingy they have their logo there gay as f*k

anonymous 5/10/2013 4:22:51 AM

This band is terrible. Narratives i can get down with.

anonymous 5/10/2013 7:26:35 AM

They beat the shit out of a dude DURING their set because someone moshed into their friend and their friend got a widdol angry. Like literally beat the dogshit out of this innocent dude. Snyder from the Weekend Brochachos bitched out Kable to go apologize and they wouldn't. Good music, horrible people.

anonymous 5/10/2013 8:17:45 AM

"Half our bands vegans but we are going to have pigs heads on stage during our set." How very vegan of you. Band is terrible. Id rather eat a jar of mayo off a dolphins dck than support that band in any way.

anonymous 5/10/2013 8:55:31 AM

start your own band "pussies" and "gays"

anonymous 5/10/2013 9:22:12 AM

Hey you leave my baby Dustin out of it, Savannah sucks ass haha.. We get it , you're a bunch of losers have nothing better to do than to trash talk bands you don't like on a blog. i wonder how many of you actually go to shows and watch these bands, instead of just reading a reveiw or a blog and decide based on someone elses opinion you decid to not like the band. It's 2013 stop using the word "gay", get out of your fcking moms house, actually go to a show and support touring bands.

anonymous 5/10/2013 9:31:52 AM

Eric Salzer is a douchebag. Hate that guy.

anonymous 5/10/2013 9:47:33 AM

I heard Eric Salzer fcks whores

anonymous 5/10/2013 9:58:25 AM

iYAITW, brought to you by Apple.

anonymous 5/10/2013 10:05:04 AM

band fcking rules. the whiny anonymous babies can get lost.

anonymous 5/10/2013 11:11:19 AM

Band BLOWS. They are overated as fck whole Charlotte scene is fcking weak. Come to NYC n see whuts good. Buncha wannabe tough guys bangin out mosh riffs, emo gays. Sell ur instruments.

anonymous 5/10/2013 11:20:16 AM

Too Macho

anonymous 5/10/2013 5:09:03 PM

Blackened trust fund metal. Country clubbers thinkin screaming in the mic makes u hard.

anonymous 5/10/2013 11:39:45 PM

fck the queerbashers and trolls, but YAITW sucks on several levels. This band is not Crust or DIY, just trend-riding egomaniacs selling mediocre black metal to none-the-wiser hardcore kids. They don't tour. They're a brand reselling NOTE-FOR-NOTE recycled WITTR and Burzum riffs. fck NSBM. fck Scioncore. fck this rock star parade. If you want a "blackened crustpunk" band full of sweethearts, no bullshit and who actually understand what ACAB and "No Gods No Masters" means listen to ISKRA.

anonymous 5/11/2013 1:02:07 PM

i wish 20 eyes would get back together

anonymous 5/11/2013 11:20:31 PM


anonymous 6/19/2013 10:43:08 AM

Paul genet is a gay

anonymous 12/17/2013 10:00:16 PM

Meanwhile the real crust and hardcore bands of Charlotte get no support, these kids are wanna be rich boy fckheads who collect Nazi memorabilia in their 3 story houses. This band is beyond terrible and is full of horrible rich boys that disrespect every other band in their city. They fcking suck sad Deathwish is wasting time on these racist fckheads.

anonymous 10/4/2014 5:56:09 PM

Funny thing is this band claims to be satanic or atheist or however u want to say it but I clearly remember the drummer randy standing up in church with our preacher and taking a vow of celibacy. He is a devote Christian. He and the lead singer attend church whenever they can. They are in love with their walk with Jesus. Just wish everybody could see them how they are in church.
