Young Guns have proven themselves as an international success following a strong album cycle promoting their second studio album 'Bones'. The record, released in 2012 through Wind-Up records in the US and PIAS throughout the rest of the world, reached #6 in the UK mid-week chart and has sold over 30,000 copies in the UK alone. The band were also the most played artist on US Rock Radio in 2012, and the album's title track was the most played track on US Rock Radio in 2013. 'Bones' holds the record as the longest climbing song to reach the number 1 spot at Active Rock Radio, continuously climbing the chart over 32 week period. In the UK, 'Bones' spent 4 weeks on BBC Radio 1's A List. The track was also the Official Theme Song for WWE Wrestlemania 29.
Recent live activity includes supporting Bullet For My Valentine on their UK arena on their UK arena tour (including a date at Wembley Arena) and high-profile festival apperances including a Main Stage slot at Download (UK), Isle of Wight Festival (UK), Rock On The Range (US) and Carolina Rebellion (UK).
The band have since signed to Virgin EMI (Worldwide ex-US) and are in the studio recording their third studio album.
