Having spent the last few months tucked away, Young Guns have confirmed that they have written and recorded their fourth studio album.
The news arrives as the band confirm the departure of drummer Ben Jolliffe. “We have always been friends before band-mates and that will never change,” they say in their statement, “our paths are simply headed in different directions and we agreed on this being the best thing to do for all of us. We wish him all the best.”
Young Guns return to the live circuit in Milton Keynes on the 26th May, before heading to Slam Dunk Festival and crossing the pond to take part on the Vans Warped Tour.
Read the statement in full below:
We’ve been quiet for a few months now and in that time we have written and recorded our 4th album. We are ready once again to release new music and head back out on tour. To say we’re excited is an understatement.
During this period we underwent some changes in camp YG and so now time has come for us to announce that we have parted ways with our drummer Ben. We have always been friends before band-mates and that will never change – our paths are simply headed in different directions and we agreed on this being the best thing to do for all of us. We wish him all the best.
We can’t wait for this new chapter to begin and we are more excited and focussed than we’ve ever been before. We’re back. See you on the road!
