Young Rival is a Canadian indie rock band from Hamilton, Ontario. The group consists of singer-guitarist Aron D’Alesio, bassist John Smith, and drummer Noah Fralick. Guitarist Kyle Kuchmey left the band at the end of 2009.[1] In the early 2000s, the group was called The Ride Theory, and released two full-length albums under that name.[2] They changed both the band's name and its musical style in 2007. After releasing an EP, the band toured as opening act for The Sadies and for Born Ruffians.[3] Young Rival is signed to Sonic Unyon.[4]

The debut album was recorded partly in Toronto at HallaMusic Recording Studios[5] and partly in New York City.[3] The band enlisted the talents of American Artist James Kuhn to provide face paint art and lip synching talent for the video for "Two Reasons" off their upcoming October 23, 2012 release.[6]
