It’s been 2 and a half years since Young Guns dropped their second full length album ‘Bones’ in the UK, since then they have conquered the US, stormed the UK touring high and low and hit the bill on some pretty big stages including Reading & Leeds festival, Download festival, and countless arenas in support of Bullet For My Valentine late last year.
But after inking a new deal with Virgin EMI in the UK and a long run in the studio Young Guns are ready to pounce back with a bigger sound, one that feels more mature and upbeat, and today Young Guns finally release new single ‘I Want Out’ which is the is the perfect example of this.
“To us it’s a bridging song between the past and where we’re going. It communicates an emotion, it sounds exciting and it feels like a new thing. We played it at Wembley Arena supporting Bullet For My Valentine and it was the highlight of the set! That song’s designed to be played in those sort of places.” – Gustav Wood (Vocalist of Young Guns)
