Maybe you will have heard of Ameira before? Who did sadly split ways as a band last year. They played our yearly Scunthorpe Nights event as we said farewell to the boys.

Drummer, James Hughes joined the increasingly popular local band ‘The Native Braves’ but Lead singer Luke and energetic bassist Gary are back in a new formation under the name of ‘Years Young’, which they formed in November 2014 and have been quietly, or not so quietly hammering out some new and fresh material in their practice space.

Luke & Gary are now joined by their two newest band mates, Ollie on Drums and Danny on guitar. So make way for the new alternative rock band to the area. If the material and standard of Ameira is anything to go by then Years Young are going to be a band to watch this year.

The boys are set to record in the studio this month, so you hopefully won’t have to wait too long in anticipation for a taste of their new EP.

They only announced their new venture a couple of days ago but already they are up to over 400 likes on social media. So give them a share and show your support.

“Already I think I have found my new favourite local band to replace the Alt Rock hole Ameira left. I will be going to see them live as soon as they are out on that stage performing.”

And if you just can’t wait to hear something from Years Young then get to the boys Facebook page where they have posted a nice little acoustic surprise for you.
