You Me At Six mark their return to the UK music scene ‘Fast Forward’, the first track taken from their brand new sixth studio album ‘VI’ – and you can listen to it on the Shoot Music – New Releases playlist.
Released on October 5, the release of ‘VI’ marks a new partnership between the band and AWAL, releasing under their new Underdog Records imprint.
‘VI’ is not what you might expect a You Me At Six album to sound like. Recorded at VADA Studios with Dan Austin (Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, Pixies), and for the first time ever co-produced by the band, the new album showcases them as they’ve never been heard before.
You Me At Six are young enough to still be releasing their first album. And if ‘VI’ were that first album, it would be hailed as one of the most exciting albums by a British band in years – uncategorisable but familiar, raucous but mainstream.
The band have notched up a list of considerable achievements since forming in 2004, including four UK Gold Records, four Top 10 albums in the UK including Number 1 album ‘Cavalier Youth‘, sold-out arena shows across the globe and boast 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 are also gearing up for an exciting second of half of 2018 on the road. Having sold out arena tours in the UK previously, as well as headlining the NME/Radio 1 stage at Reading & Leeds in 2017, the band debuted new songs from the forthcoming album at Download Festival, and will play both London’s Community Festival (July 1) and Belladrum Festival in Inverness (August 6).
