Ben Jolliffe - YOUNG GUNS

"This one has a great feel to it that makes it perfect for listening to while lying in your bunk after a heavy night."

Young Guns

TIPPED as the next great British rock band with their debut album, All Our Kings Are Dead, Young Guns hope to further fortify the hype with follow-up album, Bones, and have 14 live UK shows lined up in support of the album's release. Having already clocked up an impressive amount of touring hours – they've supported the sell-out headline shows of Bon Jovi and Lostprophets – they know which songs are best to listen to through headphones after a raucous gig. Drummer Ben Jolliffe compiles this, aptly called 'The After Show Playlist'.
