Band finally set for a bright future
After a disruptive year of member changes, 2015 was a turning point for Bedfordshire based alt rock band Young Kings to get things in motion for a bright future.
The band spent a week at The Ranch Production House in Southampton recording their debut release ‘Old Days’. “Old Days was the point in our lives where we finally found our place”. The highlight to their year soon followed, when they played a sold out Camden Barfly in London. In November 2015, Young Kings saw the release of Old Days, along with their first debut UK tour – their first as a band. “Tour was an amazing experience, for some of us it was our first ever one! It felt like we were being let loose. We spent hours cramped in our van and sleeping in car parks”. Carrying such momentum, it was in 2016 that the four bandmates completed two UK tours and played a number of shows before embarking on their first European tour with Shattered Lions.
2017 has already got the potential to be their biggest year yet as they have been working tirelessly behind the scenes, setting the foundations to their great yearly plan. With tours already planned, a new wave of music and a whole catalogue of merchandise designs soon to follow.
Young Kings will be releasing their new single ‘Visitor’ in the coming weeks, which is the first of a trilogy of singles to be released over the course of 2017.
