The band has existed since 2003 and virtuoso guitarist Guthrie Govan, as well as Massive Attack vocalist Yolanda Quertey work with them on a constant basis. They've also collaborated with Dizzee Rascal on his album Tongue N Cheek. The Young Punx are self-confirmed for this year's Sziget Festival on their MySpace page. They're set to play
