Reptile Youth was founded in 2009 by vocalist Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen and bassist Esben Valløe. Soon after its formation, the band toured extensively to rapturous acclaim. In 2010 Reptile Youth completed the longest tour of China ever for a Danish act, and in 2011 the duo performed at Iceland Airwaves, Reeperbahn Festival, Unit Tokyo, and Roskilde festivals as the only band without an actual release. The band plans to tour extensively throughout Europe and North America early next year.
