Young Guns – Academy 2, Dublin

Ahead of their debut Dublin headliner on November 20th at The Academy 2, Young Guns release the 3rd single, ‘Weight of the World’, from their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘All Our Kings Are Dead’ on October 29th.

The winners of Kerrang! magazine’s Best New Band 2009 award, YOUNG GUNS have come bursting out of High Wycombe in the UK over the last twelve months and look set to storm the rock scene. The single follows ‘Sons of Apathy’ and ‘Crystal Clear’, both of which saw the band building on their impressive rise within the rock ranks, as well as breaking out into daytime radio with regular play.

The success of the aforementioned album and its singles to date has resulted in magazine covers, the band playing sell-out headline tours, as well as landing high profile support slots (Bon Jovi, Lostprophets). Not to mention an impressive run on the festival circuit (in both the UK and Europe), culminating in an appearance on the main stage at the Reading & Leeds festivals, where the band shared a stage with the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses and Queens of the Stone Age.
