You Me at Six announce new album, drop two new songs

You Me at Six are back at it again. On Wednesday (June 6), the British band announced the impending release of their sixth studio album, VI. The upcoming album is due out Oct. 8 through AWAL Recordings’ new Underdog Records imprint. Pre-orders for the new album are currently available on the band’s website where they are offering several bumdles to choose from.

In conjunction with the new album announcement, the band also debuted not one, but two new songs from the forthcoming ten-track record. The new songs are titled “3AM” and “Fast Forward.” Listen to “3AM” above while “Fast Forward” can be streamed here.

In an interview with Upset Magazine, vocalist Josh Franceschi gave some insight into the inspiration behind “Fast Forward.”

“‘Fast Forward’ is very much a self-assessment song lyrically and I’ll be honest with you – my personal life, and also my life within the band during the whole Night People era, was just sort of coasting,” Franceschi admits.

“Whether it be coasting through bad stuff or good stuff, it was just coasting. There was no flag in the ground moment. Sometimes you have to lose something to know what it meant to you in the first place. With You Me at Six, we felt like we’d lost our way a little bit on the last record, and therefore it made us so hungry.”

VI was recorded at VADA Studios in Alcester on the Warwickshire/Worcestershire border with Dan Austin whose resume features Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, and the Pixies. This record will also mark the first time the band has co-produced one of their own albums.

VI is the follow-up to the group’s 2017 release, Night People. The complete track listing for VI can be found below.


1. “Fast Forward”

2. “Straight to My Head”

3. “Back Again”

4. “Miracle in the Mourning”

5. “3AM”

6. “I O U”

7. “Pray for Me”

8. “Predictable”

9. “Danger”

10. “Losing You”

You Me at Six drops video for ‘Night People’

A couple of weeks after unveiling plans to release a brand new record in the new year, You Me at Six has released the music video for their lead single. On Thursday (Sept, 8), the English band unleashed their music video for “Night People” which looks like it could be the darker version of the White Stripes “Seven Nation Army.” Check out the three-minute clip below.

The music video for “Night People” comes after months of teasing from the band. Earlier this year, the band had assured fans that any rumors of them splitting up were lies. Instead, they were in the process of working on their fifth studio album. In late August, they confirmed that the new album, titled Night People would arrive at the beginning of 2017. Night People will officially be released on Jan. 3, 2017 through Virgin Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website.

In support of Night People‘s release, the band will hit the United Kingdom/Ireland road this fall. The upcoming tour will kick off on Oct. 4 at the O2 Academy Bristol in Bristol, United Kingdom and wrap up on Oct. 24 at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. The complete list of upcoming tour dates can be found here.

Night People is the follow-up to You Me at Six’s 2014 release, Cavalier Youth.

As of now, the new record does not have an official name or release date, but we’re sure that’s right around the corner.

Awful News: Two Men Arrested for Assaulting Woman at Reading and Leeds


What should be one of the most enjoyable weekends across the pond has turned into an awful one for one attendants.

The Guardian is reporting that two people were arrested during yesterday’s installation of Reading and Leeds and not for some petty crime charge like theft or drugs, but for something a lot more serious.

According to British press, a 14-year-old boy from Surrey and a 31-year-old man from London have been arrested on suspicion of raping a young woman and are currently being held by Thames Valley police.

The victim, a 19-year-old woman, reported being attacked Thursday night “in a caravan on the festival trader’s site.” The woman, said she had met the man and the boy earlier in the day near an ice-cream van near a mobile phone charging station in one of the campsite.

But for those attending this year’s event and are a little concerned about things like this being a norm, don’t worry because it appears that the police have things under control, according to Chief Inspector Dave Parker, who spoke directly with The Guardian about this possibly occurring again.

“There is currently a scene watch in place and I would like to reassure those attending the festival that crime levels remain low and crimes of this nature are very rare. Officers are patrolling the site to support on-site security and if anyone has any concerns, please feel free to approach our officers to discuss this.”

On the upside, there have only been 21 (reported) crimes committed since Wednesday; five alleged drug offenses and 13 suspected thefts.

This year’s line up of Reading and Leeds has quite roster with blink-182, Paramore, The Arctic Monkeys, Jimmy Eat World, Queens of the Stone Age, Imagine Dragons, You Me at Six and many (many, many) more.

All Time Low and You Me at Six to Invade U.K. for Co-Headlining Gigs


What happens when you take two of the bigger names in the pop-punk music world and give them a tour?

You would probably get the All Time Low/You Me at Six co-headlining arena tour which is slated to invade the United Kingdom in February 2015.

The massive tour will begin on Monday, February 9 at Cardiff’s Motopoint Arena and will reportedly wrap up on February 14 at The O2 Arena in London. This tour will be the precursor to All Time Low’s sold out show at Wembley Stadium which will be recorded for the band’s second DVD, the follow-up to 2010’s Straight to DVD.

The Wembley Stadium show which has been titled, “A Night in London with All Time Low” is set to take place on March 20.

As for You Me at Six, after having to cancel their first ever headlining tour in North America earlier this year, the band are ready to begin the take over with the rescheduled tour beginning in September. Joining them for their North American invasion will be The Downtown Fiction, Young Guns, and Stars in Stereo.

Tickets for the U.K. co-headlining tour will go on sale beginning Friday August 29. No word on whether those in the respected fan clubs will get a pre-sale option.


You Me at Six Call NFL’s Pay to Play Bluff


While some people are up in arms about the National Football League’s decision to make artists pay in order to play the famous Halftime Show, it seems that a band from across the pond have decided to call the football giant’s bluff with an offer of their own.

You Me at Six have made an “official” offer the NFL to perform at during the halftime show. The band’s full offer can be read below and believe us when we say that it’s pretty hysterical the conditions the band demanding for certain prices.

Dear NFL:

We’re sorry to hear that you’re in such dire financial straits. While Coldplay and Rihanna mull your offer, we’re here to help with a multi-tiered proposal:

1.      For $2 Million: We get to play the upcoming halftime show.

2.      For $10 Million, one of us gets to quarterback a set of downs for the team of our choosing.

3.      For $40 Million, the Super Bowl will be played with English football rules, where you must use your feet, and an actual ball.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts once you’ve had a chance to review.  We welcome any of the Super Bowl committee to attend one of our upcoming American concerts. Our tour kicks off September 15th at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA.


You Me At Six

(Josh, Dan, Max Chris, Matt)

Yesterday, an article published in the Wall Street Journal claimed that the NFL had decided to charge artists to play the halftime show. At the time of the article, they claimed that the top three contenders for the gig were Rihanna, Coldplay and Katy Perry.

WSJ also revealed that NFL employees were trying to negotiate with the artists, but the reception had been ice-cold. Considering that the NFL wants a piece of the artist’s future tour income or a “financial” donation to the league, we can understand why no one wants to pay to play. Plus, we’re pretty sure a lot of people would love to have “Weird Al” perform this year; they did all come together to form a petition and actually get people to sign it.

Do we need more proof that the NFL are a bunch of scum?
