About: Young Guns showed a stellar rise in 2009, releasing their EP Mirrors, embarking on their own tour as well as opening for Lostprophets. Their first album, All Our Kings Are Dead was self-released and reached No.3 in both the UK Rock and Indie album charts in 2010. That year, they supported Danko Jones on a European tour, played Download Festival, opened Reading's main stage and supported All Time Low and Yellowcard. 2011 saw them record their new album 'Bones' in Thailand with Dan Weller, former guitarist of the metal band SikTh. Their singles recieved debuts on Daniel P Carter's Radio 1 Rock Show, and the band went on the Bare Bones Club Tour before also touring with Enter Shikari. Bones was released in the USA in 2012, and saw the band spend a week in New York, playing at the Apple Store in Soho, while MySpaceMusic streamed the album in full for its release. All this culminated in the band winning the Relentless Award at the 20th Annual Kerrang! Awards in June 2013!

2014 saw Young Guns sign to Virgin EMI record label and then fly to San Francisco to work on the follow up to Bones with producer Dan The Automator. They then played at Leeds & Reading Festival, and their first single for their third album 'I Want Out' debuted as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record, and was described as aiming for a more 'danceable direction a la The Killers meets The Academy Is...'. The single 'I Want Out' was then released on iTunes and hit No.1 on the rock chart.

New album 'Ones and Zeros' is out now...
