The Haunted Youth
Bumann & Sohn
The Haunted Youth is the band of 29-year-old Joachim Liebens from Hasselt, Belgium. Their fascinating psychedelic pop is reminiscent of acts like MGMT, DIIV, Slowdive or The Cure. The songs, which deal with doubts, hope and the feeling of being a misunderstood outsider - have a wonderfully soft sound that will make you melt.With their first single "Teen Rebel", The Haunted Youth won Studio Brussel's De Nieuwe Lichting competition. The song is in constant rotation on Belgian and also European radios. Teen Rebel also attracts attention in on the other side of the ocean: it is even on the cover of the famous and influential American online magazine Consequence of Sound.
In 2022, they have played renowned festivals such as Rock Werchter, Best Kept Secret, Pukkelpop, Tomavistas and the Reeperbahn Festival, where they were also nominated for the Anchor Award. On 4 November, The Haunted Youth released their debut album "Dawn Of The Freak", which was completely written and produced by Joachim Liebens himself.
The concert is part of the funding project "c/o pop 2023 musichubgermany" and is supported by the Initiative Musik gemeinnützige Projektgesellschaft GmbH with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
