As much as the majority of our life is spent looking into the future, the past should always feature somewhere in your thoughts.
It is, after all, the very thing that shaped your being, a point which rings true no matter what walk of life you are from or what passion ignites you.
But this is particularly important with music, as past music - or, more specifically, the initial music releases - are the ones that will more often than not resonate most with fans.
Brisbane rock outfit Young Lions will be doing just that, paying homage to their debut album Burn by taking to the road and revisiting that early material in an effort to connect with not only the faithful, but, in some ways, themselves as well.
With the Burn 10 Year Anniversary Tour set to kick off in just under two weeks Young Lions vocalist Zach Britt joined HEAVY for a trip down memory lane.
"We're really getting into the production rehearsals now," he smiled. "We're stoked to get out there. It's nice to revisit songs. Obviously I've been doing a tour with my other band Dream On Dreamer for the tenth anniversary of Loveless, which has been good, so it's been getting me excited to get out there and do the same things with Young Lions. Everyone really resonates with the music that they've listened to for ten years, and they've had a long time to learn the lyrics. We're getting stoked on some big singalongs and there's so many epic bands coming on tour with us. We've got Shangrila, Chasing Ghosts and Tapestry so it's a really all star line up."
In the full interview, Zach lets us in on some potential birthday surprises for fans, the challenges of playing an album start to finish,, why those particular support bands were chosen, the early vision of the band and how it has changed since, his initial thoughts of Burn when it was first released, memories of early live shows, how they have changed and improved since, things they have learnt about themselves and their music over the last decade, their latest album Make A Rainbow And Put It In The Sky and how it differs to Burn and more.
