Energetic, dedicated and independent; Australian rock band Young Lions show no signs of slowing down. Just look at their latest album Mr Spaceman; with over 2 million plays on Spotify alone, receiving critical acclaim from industry giants Rolling Stone and the Music as well as an iTunes and AIR #3 chart debut.
The band Zachary Britt [Rhythm Guitar and Vocals], Matt Gibson [Drums], Morgan Castle [Bass] and Ryan Allison [Lead Guitar] continually push themselves to realise their best - typified especially with their new single ‘Golden.’
Zach - “Life can get crazy sometimes and we all know what it’s like to be burnt out and on the edge. For me personally I know there’s a few people, songs and places in my life that bring me back up again when this whacked out world gets overwhelming. That group of people, those sounds and places that help centre you and bring it all back into perspective or even just remind you to meditate and get out of your bubble. You don’t have to act like everything’s fine around these friends as they help you recharge. This song is an anthem for those moments. When it’s all a little fucked up. Hopefully this song can be a place to ease your mind and soul. If you want to get some stuff of your chest and take shelter from the shit, it’s okay to rest your smile here and stay until you’re golden.”
Young Lions are no strangers to hard work with their live performances either - their impressive touring schedule around the Australian rock scene in the last year alone has seen them on the road with international superstars Taking Back Sunday and Anberlin along with Australian heavyweights Hands Like Houses and Hellions just to name a few. Let alone at their own Sold Out shows across the country on their previous headline tour supporting their JJJ Unearthed #1 Single ‘Help’ and coveted festival slots around Australia.
Not shying away from their regional fans either; Young Lions have already toured the back country of Australia alongside In Hearts Wake in 2018 and are set to bring their high energy show to regional Australia again in October/November alongside Hands Like Houses before setting out on their own headline East Coast run in support of ‘Golden’.
With a 4th album well in the works and headline tours on the horizon Young Lions are certainly a band to keep an eye on. Possibly even two.
