IF you like your music presented as a series of soaring anthems, then Sound of Guns are a band to get to know.

The name tells the story, and their forthcoming EP Elementary of Youth fits into the mould.

With a video shot in black and white amid dingy subterranean archways, the Liverpudlians look as though they are ready and willing to become alt rock's next big thing.

The four-track EP will be available on a 7-inch gatefold single, which will include a CD and the band's own fanzine 'Retail Rodeo', and as a digital download.

Elementary of Youth sits alongside Lightspeed (both tracks mixed by Dave Eringa who has worked with Manic Street Preachers and Idlewild), Dead Sea Scrolls and Gallantry.

They played Borderline at the end of September and are back in London performing at Barfly tomorrow (Friday).

Having appeared at the Glastonbury and Latitude festivals this summer, their live act is pretty well honed.

*Sound of Guns release the EP 'Elementary of Youth' on November 2 through Distiller Records.
