Both Simon Katz and Sam Martin were in the band Iglu & Hartly, but after a 2011 hiatus, the two reformed with three of their long-time friends to form Youngblood Hawke.[2] Their name is taken from the Herman Wouk novel of the same name.[3] In October 2011 before landing a recording contract with Universal Republic, Youngblood had a residency at The Satellite[4] in Los Angeles. Aside from that, the group has performed at South by Southwest, playing showcases such as Comedy Central Workaholics showcase,[5] and Purevolume House.[6][7][8]

The band was based in Silverlake, Los Angeles, where they were working on their debut album and worked odd jobs on the side during the recording process.[9] Youngblood Hawke's first single "We Come Running", has been described by LA Weekly 's Kevin Bronson as showing the quintet's "skills at grabbing hold of the pop jugular vein".[10] Their track "Forever" was the Starbucks Pick of the Week for September 2012.[11] Before that, they joined the line-up for both the Echo Park Rising Festival[12] as well as Lobsterfest.[13] "We Come Running" was also featured on the soundtrack for the association football video game FIFA 13.[14]

Youngblood Hawke's video for their debut single "We Come Running" was featured on Rolling Stone, "where they play music and scuba dive with sharks in time" in hopes to help promote the conservation of sharks.[15]

The band is currently in the process of recording their second studio album[16] and its lead single "Pressure" was released in early 2014.[17][18] They "plan on releasing a cover song accompanied by a band-made music video every month until the album is released," starting with Private Eyes by Hall & Oates which was released on March 2, 2015.[19] Their song "Knock Me Down"[20] was featured in a commercial for PlayStation 4[21] and also in the UFC documentary Road to the Octagon.[22] The song was later used in an Applebee's commercial.[23] The song was released on July 30, 2015 as the second single from the band's forthcoming second album.[24] It will also be featured in the soundtrack for Madden NFL 16.[25]
