All the Young (formerly called 'New Education') is a four-piece Alternative rock band from Stoke-on-Trent, UK. Led by Ryan Dooley (singer/songwriter) and his younger brother Jack Dooley (bass/vocals), the band have so far toured with Morrissey, Kaiser Chiefs, The 1975, Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Courteeners, The Twang, The Pigeon Detectives and Hard-Fi, played headline shows in the UK, Ireland, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Iceland, Spain and Australia, and appeared at various major festivals such as V festival, Rockness, Hurricane Festival, The Great Escape Festival, British Summer Time (concerts) and Wakestock.

They released their debut album Welcome Home in April 2012, which they recorded with Garth Richardson at his farm studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The album was mixed by Rich Costey. It debuted at number 41 on the UK Albums Chart, peaking at number 32 during the midweek chart update. It was named on XFM's 'Best Albums of 2012' list.[1]

On 25 July 2013, the band announced via their social media channels that drummer Will Heaney had left due to personal reasons. Guitarist David Cartwright left shortly after.[2][3]

In December 2013, All the Young announced the single "You & I", released exclusively for the Manchester United documentary film The Class of '92.


In March 2014, Ryan and Jack Dooley announced that they would be taking a break from All the Young for the "foreseeable future", citing their struggle to replace original members Will Heaney and David Cartwright as the main reason. Ryan went on to play as a solo artist, before forming his own band Faraday. Jack joined Big City Beach alongside Matt Bowman of The Pigeon Detectives.


On 14 April 2019, All the Young announced they would be playing a one off show at Keele University on 7 September of that year in memory of their late friend Jackson Cummings, with all proceeds going to North Staffs Mind charity. The show raised nearly £8,000 for the charity due to strong ticket sales, and after this success the band announced they would be staying together for good with plans for gigs and new releases scheduled for 2020 and beyond.
