Young Guns

The home-grown production line has been in overdrive of late in the rock world, and High Wycombe-based quintet, Young Guns, are proofthat 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 littlemore than 16 minutes.

The home-grown production line has been in overdrive of late in the rock world, and High Wycombe-based quintet, Young Guns, are proofthat 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 littlemore 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-pieceand serves as a ringing statement of intent.

A 12-track debut album ‘All Our Kings Are Dead’ was released on the 21st of July 2010, and was well-received by both critics and fansalike.

With former Johnny Truant drummer Paul Jackson (Alexisonfire, Cancer Bats, The Ghost Of A Thousand) handling artwork duties, and aforthcoming remix of ‘The Weight Of The World’ by Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins’ L’Amour La Morgue project, there’s a distinct Britishflavour 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 peoplefrom 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 arelentless touring schedule ahead of them including supporting All Time Low on their UK tour, it’s going to be near impossible to avoid YoungGuns in 2011, and on the proof of ‘All Our Kings Are Dead’ and ‘Mirrors’, we wouldn’t advise even trying. « hide
