Vocalist of Young Guns, Gustav Wood, explains the move, “to kick off the ‘Bones’ touring cycle we thought it would be cool to go back to where we started. We ended the first album cycle on a real high, playing venues and stages we’d always dreamed of, but this record is a rebirth for us, and with that in mind we’re heading back for a special one off tour of the small venues we cut our teeth in. No fancy stage set up, no fancy lighting (we don’t get on well with that anyway! See – London Forum) just us, you and a chance to have a really memorable intimate night. We’re pumped and you should be too. This is a one off tour with not many tickets available, once they’re gone, they’re gone, so get them now!”
Written over a number of months everywhere from Thailand to Spain to a shed in the band’s hometown of High Wycombe, ‘Bones’ (recorded at Karma Sound Studio in Bang Saray, Thailand and subsequently mastered to tape) marks Young Guns‘ transition from a band packed with potential to bonafide contenders for the title of Britain’s best. It’s a stirring album full of contradictions – it speaks of strength and vulnerability, friendship and loss, energetic youth and heavy-hearted experience – that proudly displays Wood, John Taylor (guitar), Fraser Taylor (guitar), Simon Mitchell (bass) and Ben Jolliffe (drums)’s skyscraping vision, and in some style. “When you’re writing an album you need to believe that what you’re doing is the most important thing in the world,” continues Gustav. “And this feels like it is. It feels like we’ve achieved something.”
