The Youth Ahead began in 1995 as a way to pass the time as teenagers in the 90s. Eventually, the band built itself into one of the most popular bands in the New Jersey area. Through the years they played with a number of national acts such as Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, Mest, New Found Glory and Relient K. During that time they also landed spots on mainstage at Skate and Surf in Asbury Park in 2001 and 2003 and on Warped Tour in 2000 and 2001.
In October 2005, after a decade of adherence, the band decided to part ways in order for everyone to pursue other interests. Today, we take a trip down "Sanity Rd." and memory lane with Shawn McGovern and Chris Leone to pay homage to the years of Birch Hill and the late 90's/early 2000's NJ punk scene.
