This Is How The New-Look Young Guns Fared At Slam Dunk


Not bad. Not bad at all.

Young Guns are down a member, but still hitting hard. Here's what we learned watching them play at Slam Dunk North.

THIS FEELS JUST LIKE A YOUNG GUNS SHOW
Now that Ben Jolliffe has officially left the band, it's Tigress' Josh Coombes temporary turn behind the kit, and he slots in seamlessly.



INTO NEWER YOUNG GUNS STUFF? YOU'RE IN LUCK!
They play loads of stuff from 'Ones And Zeroes'. It sounds big, too.

INTO FUN? YOU'RE ALSO IN LUCK

They seem to be having a laugh on stage, too. They've been away for a little while, and are clearly loving getting back on a stage and back in their groove.



THERE'S STILL A THIRST FOR YOUNG GUNS
They have a big old crowd watching them. Will they be able to further establish themselves as a major contender in this scene with their next album?

SPEAKING OF WHICH - THE NEW ALBUM IS COMING THIS SUMMER
That's what Gus says onstage, anyway.

AND ABOUT GUS...
Mr Wood is definitely growing as a frontman. The vocalist's interaction with the crowd is better than ever, as are his effortless rock star moves (which are plentiful and epic).



AS ALWAYS, THERE ARE BIG SONGS HERE
'Bones' is STILL the highlight, even if the band do try to sneak it in at second to last in their setlist as if it won't be the crowd pleaser - and it caps a set that got better and better as it went on.
