Having already teased with the release of ‘Burn The Money‘ in March, second single ‘Destroy Me‘ in May and now the third single ‘Out Of The Dark‘, Brisbane’s Young Lions are ready to release their brand new album, their first since January 2015, titled ‘Mr Spaceman‘.

The album will be available Tuesday 8th August in line with a peak time on the Lunar Calendar – the day Australia witnesses a partial lunar eclipse. Quite fitting for an album that follows a character on a journey into space.

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 curves. 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 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, and more recently Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

Listen to the new single, ‘Out Of The Dark‘ below.

WATCH

Having formed in the early months of 2013, the group released ‘Burn‘ in October of that year, then followed it up with ‘Blue Isla‘ in January 2015.

Now, after a number of years working on it, the new album is now just around the corner.

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.
