Following the announcement of new music and a brand new album, You Me At Six today set out their plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’ with three huge UK shows. These special one-off events will see the acclaimed five piece -currently riding high on the feverish anticipation for forthcoming album ‘VI’ (out October 5th on Underdog Records / AWAL)- play their seminal genre-classic ‘Take Off Your Colours’ in its entirety.
You Me At Six will be celebrating ‘Take Off Your Colours’ 10th anniversary with the below dates:
24 Nov – Victoria Warehouse, Manchester
28 Nov – Barrowland Ballroom, Glasgow
2 Dec – Brixton Academy, London
After selling over 76,000 tickets across the UK last year, You Me At Six are undoubted Heavyweights of the UK rock scene, filling the largest venues wherever they go. Their phenomenal live career speaks for itself, having sold out arena tours in the UK, headlining both the NME/Radio 1 stage at Reading & Leeds in 2017 and the second stage at Download Festival this year. November’s sold-out tour gives You Me At Six the chance to road test their explosive new show, creating a new batch of future live classics for fans in the process.
Speaking of the tour, the band comment; “We can’t wait to get out on the road in November and play new music from our new album VI live. On top of this, we know that Take Off Your Colours has played a huge part in a lot of our fan’s lives and we’re looking forward to playing that through in full on the added dates!”
You Me At Six marked their return with an exceptional double A-side of ‘Fast Forward’ & ‘3AM’, the first tracks taken from their brand new sixth studio album VI. Released on October 5th, the release of VI marks a new partnership between the band and AWAL, releasing under their new Underdog Records imprint.
Whilst retaining their bite, VI sees them flourish with uplifting alternative pop tracks such as ‘Back Again’, ‘3AM’ & ‘Pray For Me’, straying into new territories with electro dance floor leanings on ‘IOU’, while heavier tracks like ‘Fast Forward’ & ‘Predictable’ are set to strike a chord with the band’s long standing rock fanbase.
The band have notched up a list of considerable achievements since forming in 2004 as teenagers in Weybridge, Surrey, including four UK Gold Records, four Top 10 albums in the UK including Number 1 album Cavalier Youth, three sold out arena shows, sold out UK headline arena tours, an unparalleled 15 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One, multiple sold-out US headline tours and a Number 1 rock song in UK & Australia and Top 5 Rock Radio track in North America in ‘Room To Breathe’.
Alongside the ‘Take Off Your Colours’ anniversary shows, You Me At Six have already announced five UK headline shows, including stop off in the capital at O2 Academy Brixton on Friday, November 30th. Support coming from Marmozets & The Xcerts. All dates sold out immediately upon going on general sale.
