Having formed in the early months of 2013, Zach Britt (Vocals), Morgan Castle (Bass) and Matt Gibson (Drums) created a band whose alternative edge has rapidly positioned them in the forefront of the rock genre. The release of ‘Burn’ in October 2013 was named “alternative Rock at its finest” and the title track earning them a spot on Triple J’s Short Fast Loud top 40 listener poll. The sophomore album ‘Blue Isla’ was released in January 2015 and was praised by Rolling Stone Magazine for the band’s “undeniable charm to the songwriting” and describing the fan-favourite track “You Are II” as a “a sonic adrenaline rush that rivals the best of 30 Seconds To Mars”.
Having already teased the taste buds with the release of ‘Burn The Money’ last month and now the music video released for ‘Destroy Me’, Brisbane rockers Young Lions are ready to release their brand new album, their first since January 2015, titled ‘Mr Spaceman’. What better way than to release it on a peak time on the Lunar Calendar – Tuesday August 8 2017 – the day Australia witnesses a partial lunar eclipse. Quite fitting for an album that follows a character on a journey into space.
The release of the band’s third album has been a long time coming but finally the time is near 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’ – an album that likened the band to 30 Seconds To Mars.
The band have earned a very loyal legion of fans across the country not only from their own headlining shows across the country but also supporting the likes of Bayside, Hands Like Houses, Silverstein, Dream On Dreamer, Short Stack and more recently Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – to name a few.
