This week the Sound Of Guns recoiled through the Crypt and bloomin’ marvellous it was too.
Touting their corruscating brand of anthemic rock, the Liverpool five-piece have had quite a year. They played no less than four times at Glastonbury and followed up with a slot on the main stage at Latitude. Over at Radio One, Steve Lamacq adopted them as his new favourite band and their song, Elementary Of Youth, was recently voted ‘hottest record in the world’ on Zane Lowe’s show. Phew. So forgive us for feeling just a little smug that Andy (lead vocals), Lee and Nathan should want to take time from recording their new album to come and play for us.
Elementary Of Youth is released today on Distiller Records, both as a four track, 7” EP (with a cd and the band’s own fanzine ‘Retail Rodeo’ attached) and as a digital download. So head on over to myspace.com/soundofguns and get ordering.
