MUSIC: Surrey’s You Me at Six to play debut album at Academy show

The You Me at Six boys will be playing tracks from the album ‘Take off Your Colours’.

BRITISH quintet You Me at Six will be playing their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’ in its entirety as part of a 10th anniversary show at The Academy on Sunday, November 18.

They are currently putting the finishing touches to their new album ‘VI’, which is due out October 5 on Underdog Records.

A record that switches moods and styles with breathless confidence, from devastatingly defiant rock to joyously uplifting pop, it all but drips with melodies and moods. It’s the kind of record a band makes when they are in love with all the possibilities of music.

VI is not what you might expect a You Me At Six album to sound like.

“We’ve always been a band that straddles styles,” says singer Josh Franceschi. “We’ve always had that pop sensibility, but we’ve tried not to pigeonhole ourselves – that’s come from other people.”

VI was about opening that breach, and letting the full scope of their creativity flood through.

“Our fans have grown up with us and they want to hear the music we like,” Franceschi adds. 

“You have to make music for yourself because without authenticity people are going to smell the bullshit.

“None of us are going into this with any fear, because we’ve made something we can stand behind.”

A mix of post-hardcore, melodic pop-punk, and aggressive alt-rock, the British quintet rose to mainstream popularity with their 2008 debut ‘Take Off Your Colours’, followed by their breakout album ‘Hold Me Down’.
