You Me At Six return with their brand new single ‘Beautiful Way’, taken from their eagerly anticipated upcoming seventh studio album SUCKAPUNCH, due for release January 15 2021 via Underdog Records/AWAL.
The track exemplifies the soul-bearing nature of the band’s explosive and shape-shifting seventh album, SUCKAPUNCH. Alongside their new single, the band have also revealed UK headline tour dates beginning in May 2021. Tickets are on general sale from October 2 and pre-sale from September 30.
After a tumultuous period of emotional blows, leaving the majority of the band getting to grips with new life scenarios, the new album is rooted in reflection and redemption, and sees You Me At Six harness those darker experiences as a catalyst for creativity, empowerment and positivity.

Frontman Josh Franceschi commented on their latest work saying, “We have been in the pursuit of happiness for quite some time, both collectively and individually, only to discover that happiness is more than just a state of mind. We had to face our pain head on and carve it into something positive. Our seventh studio album is the result of us finding peace and acceptance of what’s been and gone.”
Recorded over five weeks at Karma Sound studio in Bang Saray, Thailand, the band arrived armed with dozens of songs, loops and ideas, eager to push the experimentation of their 2018 UK Top 6 album VI further.
Continuing their creative relationship with that album’s producer, Dan Austin (Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, Pixies), the results are brimming with ambition. Sonic influences dive boldly into electronic music, hip-hop and R&B, some of the songs tread entirely new territory, others twist rock into fresh forms.
All of it springs surprises. SUCKAPUNCH is the sound of a band embracing change. You Me At Six have crafted their most experimental, personal and progressive record to date.
