"A strong contender for alt-rock album of the year, full of the off-kilter riffs, time signature shifts and tempestuous outpourings" - Music Radar
"With truly awful global politics comes fantastic, provocative music... we'll throw the band props for picking the timing of their return perfectly." - Metro (Tracks of the Week)
"So will fans be happy with their investment? Undoubtedly, with highlights like the epic 'Year Zero', which features a Berlin-sized wall of distortion" - Kerrang!
“Blazing and anthemic… it keeps you on your toes and does its best to work its way into your head, be it through riffs or politically charged lyricism” - Dork
“Young Legionnaire demand your full attention… not shy of a pleasing melody, it reflects upon both the personal and the political, reaching in and stirring ideas and feelings you didn’t realise you had.” - Upset
"Between them they've worked on countless great - and even some genuinely classic - records. New album 'Zero Worship'... finds the group truly gelling, with their different histories, tastes, and techniques merging into one unique entity" - Clash
"A harsh and heart-wrenching amalgamation of post-hardcore, emo and shoegaze-tinged alternative." - The Line of Best Fit
"[A] career high for all involved" - 4/5: Already Heard
"Zero Worship is cerebrally expansive creativity encapsulated in a pulsating, honest and message-laden insight into the minds of three frustrated genii. Apart from being an excellently conceived album musically, the emotional journey travelled listening from end to end is invigorating." - NARC
"An album that delivers big, hard hitting alt rock... with sporadic moments of magic" - Alt Dialogue
"Considering the state of current affairs, this album feels timely, and is a reminder of where worshipping with thoughtless devotion can lead a populace." - SoundBlab
"A great must listen from a year which has been jam packed with great music" - 8/10: Musicology
"A battlefield of noise" - 4/5: Buzz Magazine
"I genuinely don’t understand why Young Legionnaire aren’t fucking huge! This is an album that wears its heart on its sleeve; it can be ugly but it also can be beautiful and truly deserves all the hype." - Birthday Cake For Breakfast
Press for 'Heart Attack'
"An erratic, razor-wire cut of their twisted post-hardcore... contorted and clattering, it’s the sound of Young Legionnaire collectively exorcising any and all creative demons." - DIY
"Sometimes we just want a band to grab us by the shoulders and shake us around a bit, and that’s certainly what Young Legionnaire have done with their latest cut ‘Heart Attack’." - Dork
Press for 'Disappear'
"a solid one-two of crashing post-hardcore and acerbic punk embellished with frantic percussion" - The Line of Best Fit (Track of the Week)
"the track continues their thrilling angular punk, driven forward by experimental melodies and Paul Mullen’s distinctive vocals" - Punktastic
"a triumphant return from the trio, the heart-pumping, anthemic new release has become an instant earworm, featuring an incredible vocal performance from front man Paul Mullen" - Birthday Cake For Breakfast
"frenzied, full of energy and vibrance" - Soundsphere
"Edgy, anthemic post-hardcore with Mullen delivering rock god vocals" - Little Indie Blogs (Tracks of the Week)
