Following their unexpected return at the start of 2022, East End post-punk legends WASTED YOUTH play their final show of the year in Hackney next month.

Having returned with sell-out shows at The Lexington and The Powerhaus - the first of these selling out in just three hours - the band were honoured to tour with Psychedelic Furs - including a date as the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, reprising their support slot on that band's Talk Talk Talk tour in 1981.

Wasted Youth memorabilia is also heavily featured in a new BBC drama Mayflies, based on the novel by award-winning author Andrew O'Hagan, which is currently being filmed.

The band have been writing and recording new material and will be announcing a new release later in the year.

Wasted Youth will be appearing at Oslo, Hackney on Saturday 1 October. Support comes from Black Doldrums with special guest DJ Gaye Advert. Tickets are on sale here.
