You Me At Six today continue their emphatic return with the release of their brand new single ‘Back Again’, launching as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1. The track is taken from their new sixth studio album VI, out October 5th via AWAL, releasing under their new Underdog Records imprint. Listen HERE.
As demonstrated with previous tracks ‘IOU’, and ‘3AM’, You Me At Six are on a roll, showcasing multi-dimensions to the band’s evolution. ‘Back Again’ is no exception, with the 5-piece exhibiting their versatility once more, replacing what was once distortion and big rock riffs, for indie-pop prowess, resulting in what is set to be one of this summer’s break out anthems.
On the sounds and themes to their new single, frontman Josh Franceschi comments; “Back Again is quite a departure for us sonically. We took some risks, We wanted to soundtrack people’s weekends. It’s a song, lyrically, about recovery, but not from vices. From feeling lost within yourself. Feeling back, your friends & family feeling like they got their person back from adversity”
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’.
You Me At Six have also set out their plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’. Due to phenomenal demand, the band have added seven additional dates to the initial three that sold out in just twenty minutes. These special one-off events will see the acclaimed five piece play their seminal genre-classic ‘Take Off Your Colours’ in its entirety. Alongside the anniversary shows, the band are playing five UK headline shows.
After selling over 76,000 tickets across the UK last year, You Me At Six are undoubted Heavyweights. 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. These upcoming sold-out shows 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.
With ‘VI’, You Me At Six are stepping out of their comfort zone and are about to change the way you think about them. Prepare to have your expectations shifted as 2018 marks a brand new chapter for one of the UK’s biggest guitar bands.
