New single and music video ‘Beautiful Way’ served the perfect introduction to the band’s explosive and shape-shifting new album, ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, tipped as “at their most ambitious" by the NME, "their most radical record to date" by The Sun and “overflowing with passion and power” by Rock Sound.
After a tumultuous period of emotional blows, leaving the majority of the band getting to grips with new life scenarios, ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ is rooted in reflection and redemption, and sees You Me At Six harness their darker experiences as a catalyst for creativity, empowerment and positivity.
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.
You Me At Six are one of the biggest and most prolific British rock bands of the 21st Century. The band’s 15 year career has seen four UK Gold Records and five Top Ten Albums in the UK, including Number One record ‘Cavalier Youth’, an unparalleled 17 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One, multiple sold-out US headline tours, a Number One rock song in the UK & Australia, and Top Five Rock Radio track in North America, in ‘Room To Breathe’.
2018 UK Top 6 album, ‘VI’ saw the band “rip up the rule book, disco-dip their basslines and record a sixth album shot through with fun”, according to the Sunday Times Culture, and described as “a big return to form” by the Independent. Elsewhere Q Magazine applauded their “new pop-friendly sensibility” where Kerrang! declared “the sound of a band who are wide awake once again”.
Undoubted heavyweights in the live arena, the summer of 2019 saw You Me At Six play their biggest outdoor headline show to date in-front of 15,000 fans at a sold-out Gunnersbury Park. Their most recent UK tour saw 40,000 ticket sales, including three nights at Brixton Academy, selling-out four months in advance in just twenty minutes. 2021 will see the band celebrate the release of ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ with a string of underplay shows across the UK in May with support from Saint Phnx who are also joining them across their European tour in June.
