The Young Evils, are excellent evidence that final products often look nothing like initial intentions. Started as a lighthearted Vaselines-inspired pop duo composed of record store co-workers Troy Nelson and Mackenzie Mercer, the Young Evils today bear only passing resemblance to their past selves.

After their charming debut album Enchanted Chapel captured hearts far and wide, the duo expanded their sound, enlisting guitarist Michael Lee and teaming up with acclaimed Brooklyn-based producer/engineer Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells, Cults) for the follow-up: the bombastic and wholly rock EP Foreign Spells. Today, brothers Brendon (bass) and Scott Helgason’s (drums) rhythm section provide the back bone to the band’s 80’s inspired angular pop in a way only siblings can provide.

On November 18th 2014, the Young Evils released the False Starts EP recorded at the legendary Sound City Studios in Los Angeles and The Kill Room in Seattle, Washington and will be rejoining Shane Stoneback in the studio to begin work on their next full-length album in the coming months.

About Sharing The Stage:
Sharing the Stage was formed to organize shows on Vashon Island so that dedicated young musicians have an opportunity to open for artists they like and respect in shows designed for what kids want in a show. We wanted to produce shows in professional venues, where kids would be psyched to go, feel respected, and not be told they can’t dance the way they want to dance. We wanted to acknowledge the passion, hard work, and dedication that kids put into the music that means so much to them. We wanted student openers to rehearse with professional musician-mentors in the community, and those mentors have consistently encouraged students to seize their moment to express their own voice. And they have done just that.

Never performed with us before? It’s easy to get involved: just watch for the audition date (here and announced at VHS, MMS, THS) and then come to the audition with a couple songs to perform. No RSVP or application needed! We look forward to seeing you.
