ALTERNATIVE rockers Young Guns are returning to Hatfield for a headline show at the Forum Hertfordshire.

The High Wycombe-based quintet played the College Lane venue last year as part of the 2010 Slam Dunk Festival.

They were also on the bill for Enter Shikari’s homecoming Christmas party at the University of Hertfordshire but struggled to make the venue due to being stuck in thick snow on the motorway.

However, the group – Gustav Wood, Fraser Taylor, John Taylor, Simon Mitchell and Ben Jolliffe – will be appearing at the Forum on Thursday, December 8, with support from I Am The Avalanche, Hostage Calm and Apologies, I Have None

The Buckinghamshire band released the first single, Learn My Lesson, from their second album earlier this month and fans in Hatfield can expect to hear tracks from the follow-up to All Our Kings Are Dead, which is due out in February.

Young Guns have racked up appearances alongside the likes of Bon Jovi, Lostprophets and All Time Low throughout the UK and Europe, along with a plethora of headline jaunts and slots at Europe’s biggest rock festivals.

They will be supported in the show by I Am The Avalanche, a pop punk band from Brooklyn coming specially across to unleash their passionate live show.

The tour is in support of their second album Avalanche United.

They will bring five-piece punk band Hostage Calm with them, alongside up-and-coming band Apologies, I Have None.

Tickets for Young Guns, plus support, presented by Jack Daniel’s cost £10.
