Gang of Youths will run a pop-up merch store at the Lord Gladstone Hotel in Sydney next month. The store is running at the pub’s Good Space Gallery from Saturday, 6th until Monday, 8th August. The Chippendale establishment is even rebranding as The Forbearance – a nod to the track of the same name from the band’s latest album, Angel in Realtime – for the three days they’re stationed there.
Along with Gang of Youths-themed wine and beers, there’ll be an exclusive range of merch that won’t be available anywhere else. Items have been made with sustainability in mind, using 100% recycled materials, and include a throwback ‘Vital Signs’ range, alternate artwork covers for Angel in Realtime, shirts, prints and more.

Gang of Youths’ Australian tour in support of Angel in Realtime kicks off this Saturday (30th July) at RAC Arena in Perth. Throughout August, they’ll play shows in Adelaide, Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne. They’ll be joined by Gretta Ray in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne, with Middle Kids on the bill in Melbourne too.
They’ll wrap up the tour with their hand-curated A More Perfect Union festival, which is taking place in Hobart and Sandstone Point. In Hobart, they’ll be joined by Cub Sport, Arlo Parks, Adam Newling and more, while the Queensland edition will feature Matt Corby, Budjerah, BLESSED and others.
Angel in Realtime, the band’s third studio album, came out in February. The follow-up to 2017’s acclaimed Go Farther in Lightness was the first to feature new member Tom Hobden after longtime guitarist Joji Malani left the band in 2019 to pursue other endeavours (such as solo project Pei).
