Young Lions - Sign To Bedlam In Time To Release New Album
June 27, 2017
Bedlam Records are pleased to announce a brand spanking new partnership with Brisbane based rockers Young Lions. Last month’s release of ‘Burn The Money’, along with the official music video for ‘Destroy me’ left the fans thirsty for more, having waited almost two years for their next masterpiece. And talk about cosmic timing; their new album ‘Mr Spaceman’, which follows a character on a voyage into space, is set for release during a rare partial lunar eclipse (Tuesday August 8 2017).
With two highly acclaimed albums already under their belt in the form of 2013’s ‘Burn’ and 2015’s ‘Blue Isla’ (an album that likened the band to 30 Seconds To Mars), 2017 is pegged to be a huge year for the boys. ‘Mr Spaceman’ will debut a new sound for the band, “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 curves,” 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, literally and metaphorically, 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”.
The band have earned a loyal legion of fans across the country through their own headline shows as well as their support of acts such as Bayside, Hands Like Houses, Silverstein, Dream On Dreamer, Short Stack and more recently Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – to name a few. Their upcoming national tour will run through September to October and promises to be their most epic yet.
How ecstatic are the band to finally release this album that’s been two years in the making? Putting it bluntly… “SO FRIGGGGGGEN SIKED!,” says Britt. “Honestly it has been a test to all our patience waiting for the right pieces of the puzzle to fall into place for the release of this project. So many highs and lows over the last year have definitely had us up against the wall at some points but it makes the final moments all the sweeter. I want everyone that has ears to hear this thing. I can't explain how much I mean that.”
