Young Guns Biography
Alternative-Rock combo Young Guns formed in High Wycombe, ENGLAND, from the ashes of a variety of local bands, comprised of singer Gustav Wood, guitarists John Taylor and Fraser Taylor, bassist Simon Mitchell and drummer Benjamin Jolliffe.
The quintet set things in motion with the release of their "Mirrors" EP in June 2009. But it wasn't until debut self-financed album, "All Our Kings Are Dead", unveiled in July 2010, that they began to really show what they were capable of.
Written over a number of months in places ranging from Thailand to Spain to a shed in the band's hometown, their second album, "Bones", marked Young Guns' transition from a band packed with potential to bonafide contenders for the title of Britain's best. Released in February 2012, on the indie label Play It Again Sam, the album climbed within the top 20 on the U.K. Official chart. In September Wind-up Records released "Bones" in America and the main single, the album's title-cut, soon exploded onto the Active Rock chart peaking at #1. The second single, "Towers (On My Way)", also hit the top 40 of the same chart.
