Reptile Youth was founded in 2009 by vocalist Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen and bassist Esben Valløe. Soon after its formation, the band toured extensively to rapturous acclaim from audiences and critics alike. In 2010 Reptile Youth completed the longest tour of China ever for a Danish act, and in 2011 the duo performed at notable festivals including Iceland Airwaves, Reeperbahn Festival, Unit Tokyo, and Roskilde Festival as the only band without an actual release. Reptile Youth's live shows border on barely contained chaos and their stage dominance has inspired a fervent following. Expanding their stage presence with guitarist Mads Bergland and Emil Vissing on drums, the band continues to tour out of their Copenhagen headquarters. Watch Reptile Youth perform 'Speeddance' at last year's SPOT festival in Denmark.
