Young Guns in Reddit AMA: “Hopefully ‘Ones and Zeros’ will be our big break”

Young Guns are this evening (10th June) taking part in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), answering questions from fans on anything from their new album ‘Ones and Zeros’ – out this week – to what they eat and listen to on tour.

“It’s funny, I kinda think we haven’t had our ‘big break’ yet,” they say in response to one question. “We’ve had lots of successes but inevitably we always end up wanting more. Hopefully it will be the release of this record!”

They also touch on the impact streaming has had on bands, when asked how hard it is “to get to that ‘elite’ metal status bands like Godsmack and Slipknot have.”

“I think it’s very difficult for new bands to get to the status of bands that started maybe 10 years ago,” they say. “With all the streaming sites now and people maybe not owning physical copies I think it’s harder for people to really connect with an album.”

Join in with the AMA, which is still going on, here.

Young Guns’ new album ‘Ones and Zeros’ is currently placed at No. 11 in the UK Album Chart – their highest charting to date. Muse meanwhile are heading for No. 1.
