Young Guns have released their highly anticipated new album, Echoes, today via Wind-up Records. The album premiered in full earlier this week on FUSE, and can be purchased via iTunes, or the band’s website. Young Guns recently kicked off their first US headline tour, and will also be performing at a number of upcoming festivals as well as several support dates with Of Mice & Men (see complete list of dates below). Their lead single, Bulletproof, is also being featured as the official theme song for WWE’s Clash of Champions. For more information, please see below or visit: www.weareyoungguns.com.
On the new album, frontman Gustav Wood shares, “I think the whole album is a reflection on a specific time period in my life. The past year has been a time of great change and the end of a lot of things – the finishing of a 6-year relationship, the departure of an original band member, and lots more. The whole album is a conversation about the past, the present, and the future. From being stuck in the past and not being able to let go to finding the best way to move on, and all of the aspect of those ideas, each song feels like it has a common connected theme running through it.”
Since first grabbing the attention of the rock world through their 2009 EP, Mirrors, and its full-length follow-up, All Our Kings Are Dead, in 2010, Young Guns – consisting of Gustav Wood (vocals), Fraser and John Taylor (guitars) and Simon Mitchell (bass) – have developed a reputation as one of Britain’s most dynamic, exciting and hard-working bands, with acclaim and admiration greeting their every increasingly ambitious move.
The band took to the studio in early 2016 with multi-platinum producer, David Bendeth (Paramore, All Time Low, Killswitch Engage, Papa Roach), whose input allowed them to craft songs that are a complete representation of Young Guns as a band, and these four men as people. They are songs that rank amongst the band’s bravest, most creative and most dynamic ever. And they are songs that see Young Guns facing a brighter future, and full of more possibility than ever before.
