Having already teased the taste buds with ‘Burn The Money’ and ‘Destroy Me’ in March and third single ‘Freedom’ just last week, Brisbane rockers Young Lions are ready to release their brand new album, their first since January 2015, titled ‘Mr Spaceman’.  What better way than to release it on a peak time on the Lunar Calendar – Tuesday August 8 2017 – the day Australia witnesses a partial lunar eclipse.  Quite fitting for an album that follows a character on a journey into space.


The release of the band’s third album has been a long time coming but alas the time is near for this energetic and reputable three-piece that hail from Brisbane’s western suburbs.  They are a band that is fast building momentum with two highly acclaimed albums already under their belt in the form of 2013’s ‘Burn’ and 2015’s ‘Blue Isla’ – an album that likened the band to 30 Seconds To Mars.


‘Mr Spaceman’ is about to change that.  “For this album we decided to take a bit of a different approach as it follows a character on a journey into space to deal with all sorts of inter-dimensional learning curbs,” says singer Zach Britt. “Writing a concept album, in retrospect, was a way for us to push the boundaries and open our minds, lyrically and musically, so that we felt we could push the limits of what Young Lions is. Using space as a landscape for such a journey seemed a logical way for us to go”.


The journey on this album, from start to finish, is an experience.  “All of our releases have been a little different but this one really came together as a whole. We have tried to mold the angst and passion of 'Burn' with the sensitivity and heart of 'Blue Isla' and I can proudly say we had a lot of success on this mission. It's so exiting to think about people hearing this album because it really is just another progression on the Young Lions journey and anyone who has been with us from the start will NOT be disappointed”.


The band have earnt a very loyal legion of fans across the country not only from their own headlining shows across the country but also supporting the likes of Bayside, Hands Like Houses, Silverstein, Dream On Dreamer, Short Stack and more recently Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – to name a few.


Young Lions are not one to shy away from their performances having earnt a solid reputation for their live sets with Kill Your Stereo calling their recent performance supporting US rockers Bayside as “a stellar performance” and “a catchy and fervent set”.


Having formed in the early months of 2013, Zach Britt (Vocals), Morgan Castle (Bass) and Matt Gibson (Drums) created a band whose alternative edge has rapidly positioned them in the forefront of the rock genre. The release of ‘Burn’ in October 2013 was named “alternative Rock at its finest” and the title track earning them a spot on Triple J’s Short Fast Loud top 40 listener poll. The sophomore album ‘Blue Isla’ was released in January 2015 and was praised by Rolling Stone Magazine for the band’s “undeniable charm to the songwriting” and describing the fan-favourite track “You Are II” as a “a sonic adrenaline rush that rivals the best of 30 Seconds To Mars”.


How ecstatic are the band to finally release this album that’s been two years in the making?  Putting it bluntly… “SO FRIGGGGGGEN SIKED!,” says Britt. “Honestly it has been a test to all our patience waiting for the right pieces of the puzzle to fall into place for the release of this project. So many highs and lows over the last year have definitely had us up against the wall at some points but it makes the final moments all the more sweeter. All I want to do is share this with people. I want everyone that has ears to hear this thing. I can't explain how much I mean that.”
