You Me At Six Announce Tour Dates For 2019 North American Tour

Chart-topping UK rock band You Me At Six is set to hit North America on the Back Again Tour 2019 in support of their triumphant sixth studio album called VI released on October 5th via Underdog Records / AWAL. VI debuted at Number 6 on the UK album chart, marking the band’s 5th UK Top 10 Album.

You Me At Six has crafted an exciting, ambitious album with VI. It’s 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 album a band makes when they are in love with all the possibilities of music. Recorded at Vada Studios in England, the band co-produced VI with Dan Austin (Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, Pixies). The anthemic 10-song collection boasts a combination of rock riffs, indie pop, R&B vibes and electronic beats showcased by singles “Back Again,”  “3AM,” “IOU” and “Fast Forward.”

Kerrang! raves, “VI serves up a tasting menu of what the future of the band holds, not bound by a single sound but by a revived spirit,” NME gushes, “It’s a pleasure to see them testing the limits of their sonic template” and DIY Magazine declares, “VI not only recaptures but reinvents the magic that has propelled them to be one of the UK’s most successful rock outfits of recent times.”

Since forming in 2004, You Me At Six has scored five UK Gold records and five UK Top 10 albums including the Number One album Cavalier Youth that spawned the Number One rock song in the UK & Australia and Top Five Rock Radio track in North America with “Room To Breathe,” and the band has notched an unparalleled 15 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One.

Having gained a reputation as one of the best live bands in the UK, You Me At Six is ready to blow away North American fans with their explosive show: https://bit.ly/2AyGuUW. The band has toured alongside luminaries like 30 Seconds To Mars, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, All Time Low and Bring Me The Horizon and have done multiple sold out U.S. headline tours, multiple sold out UK headline arena tours, headlined both the NME/Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds in 2017 and the second stage at Download Festival this year.

“We’re already counting down the days till kickoff,” says guitarist Max Helyer. “We’re bummed that we had to push the dates, but trust me, we’ll make it worth the wait.”

ALL VIP & GA tickets for the tour will be valid for the rescheduled shows. Dates are as follows:

Rolling Stone called the disc “a confident, modern rock album,” Q Magazine gave it four stars, and The Guardian praised it for having “the kind of fist-pumping choruses that made the Foo Fighters superstars.”

The quintet (lead vocalist Josh Franceschi, guitarists Max Helyer and Chris Miller, bassist Matt Barnes and drummer Dan Flint) have spent the past several years playing to packed-house crowds all across Europe, including a sold-out show at London’s famed Wembley Arena. They have three Gold-selling albums under their belt (2008’s Take Off Your Colours, 2010’s Hold Me Down and 2011’s Sinners Never Sleep), have racked up over 20 million combined YouTube/Vevo views and have an international fanbase whose members number in the millions.

British rockers You Me At Six’s fourth album, “Cavalier Youth” has landed at No. 1 on the U.S. Alternative New Artist Albums Chart and No.1 Heatseekers on the New Artist Chart. This international breakthrough follows just a few days after “Cavalier Youth” earned the No.1 spot on the U.K. charts, bumping Ellie Goulding’s “Halcyon Days” to No. 2 and beating out Beyonce, whose self-titled release rounds out the top three. The follow-up to three certified-gold albums, “Cavalier Youth” has solidified the band as one of the UK’s biggest rock bands this decade, and has landed them on the North American map in a big way. Recently partnering with North American label,Prospect Park, for the album release, You Me At Six have been candid about their eagerness to return to the States, hinting at possibility of a North American tour on the horizon. Purchase “Cavalier Youth” on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/CYiTunes. For more information: http://www.youmeatsix.co.uk/
 
About the band’s crossover success in the US, lead vocalist Josh Franceschi says, “Having a number one record in the UK this week has been a dream come true. To be Number one in the US New Artists Chart is incredible for us, and a huge step on from our previous releases.” He continues, “Such an exciting start to a year which we intend to work very hard in the US and Canada.”
Their list of UK accomplishments include three Gold-Certified albums, three of which reached Top 5 on the UK Album chart, selling out Wembley Arena, and charting 10 singles on Radio 1’s A-List.  And after their recent sold our US tour and rave reviews about “Cavalier Youth” pouring in at unstoppable speed, UK’s biggest rock band You Me At Six is shattering borders and proving that their music carries its weight across the globe – and the fans have never been more ready.
“We spent six months of 2013 in North America and it is truly our second home,” says Franceschi. “Our US and Canadian fans can expect to see a lot more of us in 2014.”
