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.
