“We’re celebrating our 10th year as a band! This tour is for the fans; the real OG’s that have been with us since we played our first shows at Wrangler and X&Y.” – Young Lions

2013 was a stellar year for Young Lions. They released their debut LP, signed a record deal and played their first ever live shows. In October of that year, they also released what was arguably one of their most critically acclaimed albums, ‘Burn’. Ten years on, Young Lions are celebrating its anniversary with a national headlining tour performing the album in its entirety, as well as some other Young Lions classics across their other three albums.

‘Burn’ received critical acclaim upon its release, with many praising the band’s ability to blend different genres into a cohesive sound. The album also gained the attention of major publications, such as Alternative Press and Kerrangl, earning them a top 40 berth in triple j’s Short. Fast. Loud. 2013 listener poll.

The 10-track LP showcased the band’s unique blend of post-hardcore and alternative rock. Kill Your Stereo gave the album 5 stars, describing it as “Big, fast and just awesome!” and “Alternative rock at its finest.”

The album’s success helped to establish Young Lions as a force to be reckoned with in the Australian music scene. They went on to tour extensively in support of Burn, playing shows across Australia.

“This has been a long time coming and we are incredibly excited to share this tour with you all”.- Young Lions
