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.
