The previous effort from Huntington Beachs Venus Infers, 2008s The Truth About Venus Infers, was one of the most celebrated local records of that year, netting three OC Music Awards and landing the band impressive opening gigs for national acts such as Chris Cornell and Peter Murphy. The tough part comes when following up on all that praise and producing a new album. With the arrival of Youll Understand When Youre Older, Venus Infers are putting on an album-release show at big-time venue the Grove of Anaheim, its on an outdoor stage outside the venue, sure, but the message is still clear. Based on the albums first single, (They Stole Today But They Wont Take Away) Tomorrow, lead singer Davis Fetter and company are sticking with the sound that scored them trophies and face time with superstars, wearing their 90s Brit-pop/early 00s indie influences on their leather-jacketed sleeves and relishing in a soaring chorus.
