Young Guns go for it with 2012 Bare Bones Club Tour - tickets: Friday 25th Nov
For a town of its size, High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire has been home to a surprisingly impressive list of famous sons (and daughters). The town's roll of honour includes, among others, the chanteuse Dusty Springfield, science-bothering foodie Heston Blumenthal, Mighty Boosh comedian Noel Fielding and, from the world of post-hardcore rock, Young Guns.
Having formed in 2003, it took Young Guns six years and three line-up changes to release their debut EP, 2009's 'Mirrors'. It was worth waiting for. Bursting with pent-up energy and vitality, it was a forewarning of what was to come a year later when the debut album, 'All Our Kings Are Dead' began turning heads.
The record peaked at No 3 both in the UK rock and indie charts and earned the five-piece widespread recognition, plenty of media hype and some impressive support slots including for Bon Jovi and Lostprophets. Young Guns second LP, 'Bones', will be released on 6th February, just days after the Bare Bones Club Tour gets underway.
The headline tour kicks off with a hometown show on 2nd February, followed by gigs in Leeds, Liverpool, Glasgow, Manchester, Brighton, Pontypridd and more, before the final date of the tour at the Belfast Speakeasy on 18th February. Note that the Kingston, Dublin and Belfast shows are matinées.
Tickets for go on sale at 9AM on Friday 25th November, priced around £10 - check below for availability.
After a busy February, Young Guns show no sign of slowing down into March, when they support Enter Shikari on their six-date tour, beginning in Edinburgh on 17th March, taking in the Manchester Apollo and more, before the last date on 23rd March 2012 at the Hammersmith Apollo. Tickets for the Enter Shikari dates are already on sale, priced £18 to £20.
And, next month, Young Guns play the University of Hertfordshire on Thursday 8th December. We have tickets available now, also just a tenner.
