Young Guns are a British rock band from Buckinghamshire and London, UK. On 22 June 2009 they released their debut EP Mirrors, and their debut album All Our Kings Are Dead was released a year later on 12 July 2010.
The success of the 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 with Bon Jovi and Lostprophets. They have also played at many festivals (in both the UK and Europe), culminating in an appearance on the main stage at the Reading Festival, where the band shared a stage with the likes of Guns N' Roses and Queens of the Stone Age.
The band released their EP Mirrors, which included popular songs such as Weight of the World & Daughter of the Sea in June 22, 2009, and started touring in July 2009, and supporting Lostprophets at around August 2009.
Young Guns decided to move onto their first album, All Our Kings Are Dead, under their own label called Live Forever. This was released on 12 July 2010 and peaked at No. 43 in the UK Albums Chart, and No. 3 in both the UK Rock and Indie album charts. The album featured the singles, Winter Kiss, Sons of Apathy, Crystal Clear, Stitches as well as Weight of the World from Mirrors. Soon after the release of the album Young Guns released music videos for all of the singles.
During the summer Young Guns played at some of the UK's largest festivals, including Download Festival and opening the main stage of Reading Festival. This was proceeded by a European Tour supporting Danko Jones & their own UK Tour (supported by The Swellers and Japanese Voyeurs). Starting on the 15 February Young Guns supported All Time Low with Yellowcard on another European Tour which ended up in the UK, visiting venues such as The O2 Academy in Brixton. On the 10 July 2011 the album was re-released and retitled All Our Kings Are Dead: Gold Edition. This version included the original album as well as a bonus disc DVD. The DVD contained 3 acoustic sessions, 3 live videos and a documentary as well as the music videos for all 5 singles.
