Here are a few things about Young the Giant that you may have missed up until now.
(1) They used to be called The Jakes when they first formed back in high school around 2004. Relationships go back as far as elementary school.
(2) When a name change was required, singer Sameer Gadhia tossed out “Young the Giant” for no particular reason—and it stuck.
And (3) When the band started to take off, all four members decided to drop out of college at the same time. To break the news to their parents, they prepared a written presentation for their goals and dressed formally for the meetings. It worked. Everyone agreed to a six-month break from school to see what happened.
Nice to have the parents on board, you know?
