Released on February 06 next year, the band are hitting the ground running with a tour of tiny venues. Get excited.
The mighty Young Guns have revealed that they will release new album 'Bones' via PIAS on February 06, 2012. You can see the cover below. Pretty, right?
(Oh yeah - we've heard the album. It's fucking incredible.)
The band will also play a tour of tiny venues to kick off the year. Dubbed the Bare Bones Club Tour, the run of dates sees the band playing a number of matinee shows up and down the country after kicking off with a hometown show in High Wycombe.
“To kick off the ‘Bones’ touring cycle we thought it would be cool to go back to where we started,” explains vocalist Gustav Wood. “We ended the first album cycle on a real high, playing venues and stages we'd always dreamed of, but this record is a rebirth for us, and with that in mind we're heading back for a special one off tour of the small venues we cut our teeth in. No fancy stage set up, no fancy lighting (we don't get on well with that anyway! See - London Forum) just us, you and a chance to have a really memorable intimate night. We're pumped and you should be too. This is a one off tour with not many tickets available, once they're gone, they're gone, so get them now!"
Pre-sale tickets and album bundles for the tour are available exclusively from www.weareyoungguns.com from Thursday 17th November at 9am, before going on general sale on Friday 25th November at 9am. These will sell out super-fast, so get on it.

We might've spent the weekend at Leeds Festival bringing you all the live reviews and photos as the action happened, but this year, the BBC based themselves at Reading Festival for their video coverage. The good news is much of it has now made its way onto YouTube so you can catch up ANYWHERE! Here are some of our faves...
