Years & Years are a British electropop band from London, consisting of frontman Olly Alexander, bassist Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Turkmen on synths.
Formed in 2010, the band released a string of singles and EPs before signing to Polydor Records in 2014. They released the single Desire, which hit #22 in the UK Singles Chart, won the BBC Sound of 2015, and their next single, King, hit the top spot in the chart. They released their debut album, ‘Communion’, in 2015 which reached #1 in the UK Albums Chart.
The band have headlined their own shows and tours across the UK, including a show at Wembley Arena in April 2016, supported by MØ, Nimmo and Mabel.
Years & Years have lined up a summer show at the Roundhouse for July 2018 following up the release of their new record, 'Palo Santo', which will arrive on July 6.
They've also since confirmed a nationwide UK and Ireland tour supporting the record, and a series of shows across Europe too, which spans from November 2018 to February 2019, and follows an autumn US/Canada tour.

On ‘Palo Santo’, Years & Years’ Olly Alexander embraces his identity as both a gay man and a pop star. Within the genre, LGBTQ+ representation has sometimes been either invisible or problematic, and Alexander redresses the balance with an album that revels in its enjoyment of the format while utilising its gloss to reveal deep, complex emotions.
