What Do Young Guns Stand For?
Young Guns have emerged as one of the UK’s most electrifying new bands, gaining heavy radio play support and UK chart success, while selling out shows across Europe with their punchy take on alternative rock. Gus Wood, Young Guns lead vocalist had this to say:

“People can do whatever they want if they’re willing to put their head down and work for it. For me, at least, that’s very much what the band is about: it’s shown me the meaning of working hard and being passionate about something that you love. That’s really important.”

Those coming to the gigs are encouraged to wear their DM’s to be in with a chance of winning a range of prizes.

Tickets will be available online and instore for all shows will be on a strictly first come first served basis. Keep an eye on WWW.DRMARTENS.COM for more info.
