More than three years since their DIY beginnings in a bedroom — and the release of a demo cassette that altered some eardrums — L.A. industrial duo Youth Code will release their second full-length, “Commitment to Complications” (via Dais Records), on April 8. It’s the follow-up to their 2013 self-titled debut and sees the duo of Sara Taylor and Ryan George working with producer Rhys Fulber and welcoming the likes of Ben Falgoust (Goatwhore) and Todd Jones (Nails) as guests — and, notably, turning the harsh up past 11. The teaser song “Transitions” sounds massive and demonic, with Taylor’s screeching vocals doing battle with pummeling rhythms and molten electronics. Grit teeth, take no prisoners.
