The upcoming album, available digitally on December 10, 2013 and via brick and mortar on February 11, 2014, features the contributions of renown artists Ivan Neville, Anton Fig, Blondie Chaplin, Corey Glover, Adam Ezra, and more, performing songs written by TYP's Mitch Kaneff and Jake Hertzog.

Kaneff (bass), Hertzog (guitar) and Fraboni eschew modern-day digital sleight of hand for a raw, live band, rocking, ‘captured-in-the-studio' sound...From Ivan Neville's killer vocals on ‘Time', to Corey Glover's explosive delivery on ‘Unacceptable You', to Blondie Chaplin's wrenching take on ‘Love You Forever', to the trio of vocalists joining together on Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong's seminal ‘War', the diversity of the music and the top-notch performances propel the collection, and reflect the high caliber of artists who've joined together to form a truly soulful ‘Coalition'.
Building the Coalition Trailer:
With recent performances at The Cutting Room, CBGB Festival, CMJ and more, The Young Presidents, and the community of musicians who regularly join them, have established themselves as a live act to be reckoned with. Spring 2014 tour dates will be announced in the months ahead.
The band's July concert at The Cutting Room in New York City, referenced above, doubled as a Benefit concert: The Kaneff Foundation's 1st Annual Music Cures Fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation. The jam-packed event raised over $140,000.00 for Alzheimer's research, and was covered by major media outlets (see below). The evening also included a glimpse into the life of Glen Campbell, who recently announced his battle with Alzheimer's. James Keach, producer of the Oscar winning "Walk the Line," introduced (via taped message,) a brief clip from his forthcoming documentary on superstar Campbell, and Campbell's children, Ashley and Shannon Campbell, opened the evening with their band Victoria Ghost.

About the Artists:
The Young Presidents:
The Young Presidents is a two-member rock band from New York City that blends classic rock & roll with a dash of 90's alternative. Using a back-to-basics approach with a modern sound, The Young Presidents return to the great "power trio" of rock: guitar, bass and drums. Guitarist/vocalist Jake Hertzog and bassist/vocalist Mitch Kaneff are united by their passion for rock music and the band is inspired by everything from Cream to Train, from the Jimi Hendrix Experience to Nirvana - just a few of the influences that were evident on the band's debut album, Freedom of Speech.
Mitch Kaneff: Living proof that you can do it all, Mitch seamlessly juggles being CEO of his company, Arkay Packaging, with the writing and publishing of his book Taking Over: Insider Tips from a Third-Generation CEO, and his musical career.
Jake Hertzog: The youngest winner of the Montreux Jazz Guitar Competition and a distinguished Berklee College of Music alumnus with three critically acclaimed jazz/fusion records, Jake's prior experience playing with Naked Brothers Band helped catapult him into the pop world - and his extraordinary expertise in composing, writing, singing, guitar playing and directing keeps him there!
‘Coalition': Inspired by the success of their first album, "Freedom of Speech," The Young Presidents are about to release their innovative 11-song project, inviting guest artists into the limelight with them. Teamed up with renown Grammy-winning producer/engineer Rob Fraboni and collaborating with some of the world's greatest talent (Corey Glover, Blondie Chaplin, Steve Aguirre and Ivan Neville to name a few,) Mitch and Jake recorded all original material in Avatar Studios this year. The band's last release, We the People, featured Corey Glover (Living Colour) on vocals.
