The release of the band’s third album has been a long time coming for this energetic and reputable three-piece that hail from Brisbane’s western suburbs. They are a band that is fast building momentum with two highly acclaimed albums already under their belt in the form of 2013’s ‘Burn’ and 2015’s ‘Blue Isla’.
“For this album we decided to take a bit of a different approach as it follows a character on a journey into space to deal with all sorts of inter-dimensional learning curbs,” says singer Zach Britt. “Writing a concept album, in retrospect, was a way for us to push the boundaries and open our minds, lyrically and musically, so that we felt we could push the limits of what Young Lions is. Using space as a landscape for such a journey seemed a logical way for us to go”.
The journey on this album, from start to finish, is an experience. “All of our releases have been a little different but this one really came together as a whole. We have tried to mold the angst and passion of 'Burn' with the sensitivity and heart of 'Blue Isla' and I can proudly say we had a lot of success on this mission. It's so exiting to think about people hearing this album because it really is just another progression on the Young Lions journey and anyone who has been with us from the start will NOT be disappointed”.
