There comes a time in a young band's life when they hit that sweet spot where their voice, their sound, and their unity as a band gel perfectly. For Los Angeles-based indie rockers Young the Giant, that time is now. This trifecta of musical magic manifests itself on the band's third album, Home of the Strange, on Fueled by Ramen. The theme of Home of the Strange is of the modern American immigrant story. It's especially relevant to the quintet as they're from different ethnic backgrounds and most are immigrants or first-generation Americans. Gadhia is Indian-American, Jacob Tilley (guitar) is British, Eric Cannata (guitar/vocals) is a New Jersey-born Italian-Jewish, Payam Doostzadeh (bass) is Persian-American, and Francois Comtois (drums/vocals) is French-Canadian. But, it also speaks to anyone who feels like they don't belong, or feels marginalized, angry about the state of affairs of our nation (especially in this polarizing election year), or hopeless about a better future. Since the band's 2010 inception, Young the Giant has made a name for itself in rock as the "thinking man's band," winning over fans, radio, and press with their incendiary live shows, strong musicianship, and poignant lyrics. The band's 2010 self-titled debut, which reached No. 6 on the Rock and Alternative album charts, featured the RIAA Gold-certified hits, "Cough Syrup" and "My Body," which peaked at No. 2 and No. 4, respectively on Alternative Radio. The band's sophomore release 2014's Mind Over Matter hit No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and spawned the hits, "It's About Time," which reached No. 2 on the Alternative Radio chart and the title track, which hit No. 15.
