YOUNG GUNS unleash the latest single from their critically acclaimed
debut album ‘All Our Kings Are Dead’, ‘Weight Of The World’ on
November 1st. The single follows ‘Sons of Apathy’ and ‘Crystal Clear’,
both of which saw the band building on their impressive rise within
the rock ranks, as well as breaking out into daytime radio with
regular play.

The success of the aforementioned album and its singles to date has
resulted in magazine covers, the band playing sell-out headline tours,
as well as landing high profile support slots (Bon Jovi,
Lostprophets). Not to mention an impressive run on the festival
circuit (in both the UK and Europe), culminating in an appearance on
the main stage at the Reading & Leeds festivals, where the band shared
a stage with the likes of Guns ‘n’ Roses and Queens of the Stone Age.

‘Weight of the World’ is an ambitious slice of widescreen rock,
combining instrumental muscle with a soaring chorus. The version
released on November 1st has been revamped a little from the version
that appears on their debut, a decision frontman Gustav Wood explains,
“Now, we love our album to death, but we, like most bands, are
perfectionists and knew that we could do the song a little more
justice if we only had a tiny bit more time (especially if we were to
release it as a single). We went back into the studio with Dan Weller
once again and just tweaked, nipped, and tucked a bit so that we were
a bit happier with where the song was at.”

The band head out on a University freshers run today, followed a six
week stint with Danko Jones in Europe, before heading home for their
final shows of 2010 with their biggest headline tour to date (dates
