'We literally can’t wait to get back out on the road and play a load of new songs for you…' GUSTAV WOOD, February 2015
Young Guns have today confirmed that they’ll be heading out on a headline tour in support of their forthcoming third album, Ones and Zeros. The tour will kick off on Friday 27th March in Oxford.
The home-grown production line has been in overdrive of late in the rock world, and High Wycombe-based quintet, Young Guns, are proof that it's showing no signs of fatigue.
Their four track debut EP, ‘Mirrors', has been produced by former SikTh members Dan Weller and Justin Hill (Enter Shikari, Haunts, Gallows), and covers a host of subjects, from party-induced-excess and temptation, to adolescent aspirations and dependency, and all this in little more than 16 minutes. However, it's a brief blast of promise that should more than whet the appetite for what's to come from the five-piece and serves as a ringing statement of intent.
With former Johnny Truant drummer Paul Jackson (Alexisonfire, Cancer Bats, The Ghost Of A Thousand) handling artwork duties, and a forthcoming remix of ‘The Weight Of The World' by Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins' L'Amour La Morgue project, there's a distinct British flavour to ‘Mirrors'.
"British music is so healthy right now, the scene here has been building for a long time," explains singer Gustav Wood, "and to have people from some of the best bands, past and present, helping us out and digging our band is incredible."
Having clocked up shows alongside the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Lostprophets, The Answer and We Are The Ocean already, and with a relentless touring schedule ahead of them including supporting All Time Low on their UK tour, it’s going to be near impossible to avoid Young Guns in 2011, and on the proof of ‘All Our Kings Are Dead’ and ‘Mirrors’, we wouldn’t advise even trying.
