0161 Festival stalwarts, from the first edition in 2014, they are back again, after a hiatus they are back with a bang and ready to take Manchester by storm.
Wasted Youth is a hardcore punk band coming from Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany. They started in 2008 and since then, they have played a lot around Germany and Europe and shared stage with bands like Madball, Death Before Dishonour, Vitamin X, Agnostic Front, H2O etc. Their first full length Stay Free was released in the end 2010 on Diffidati Records/Casual Records. After some line up changes it was followed by Remembering Means Fighting, released by Fire & Flames in 2011, a 4 songs EP dedicated to Georg Elser, a working class man from their area who attempted to assasinate Adolf Hitler in 1939. With a lot of hardcore and street punk influences, Wasted Youth represents hardcore punk the way it should be, political, with strong leftist and antifascist attitude.
