“…Vicious new band featuring the Automatic front man Paul Mullen and Bloc Party bassist Gordon Moakes….
The album cranks up the intensity in ways the duo’s day jobs never dreamed of…
all you can do is cling on for dear life and enjoy the hell out of the ride.”– Alternative Press
“…an animalistic beast of snarling grunge and politically-minded chaos…”- The Fly (UK)

YOUNG LEGIONNAIRE initially started following a chance meeting between Paul and Gordon during the recording sessions for the Print Is Dead album in 2006, where Gordon guested on the track ‘Wait a Minute’ with Paul and the rest of YCNI:M. Some more meetings and conversations followed, eventually leading to their first rehearsals together as a band in 2009. Now joined by full time drummer Dean Pearson, 2011 has seen the band already become one of the acclaimed rock bands of the year.
