UK buzz band YOU ME AT SIX have announced rescheduled dates for their headlining tour of North America, set to kick off September 15th at the Troubadour in Los Angeles.
It was a week ago that lead singer Josh Franceschi was diagnosed with vocal exhaustion following more than a year of straight touring. Doctors ordered the frontman to rest his vocal cords for a minimum of 4-6 weeks, forcing the group to postpone the tour.
“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:
|Mon/Sep-15||Los Angeles, CA||Troubadour|
|Thu/Sep-18||Oakland, CA||Metro Opera|
|Fri/Sep-19||Portland, OR||Hawthorne Theatre|
|Sun/Sep-21||Seattle, WA||El Corazon|
|Sat/Sep-27||Austin, TX||VENUE – TBA|
|Wed/Oct-01||Ft Lauderdale, FL||Revolution|
|Thu/Oct-02||Tampa, FL||State Theatre|

You Me At Six just released a new single, “Room To Breathe,” which premiered on USA Today.com, and a companion video, which debuted on Billboard.com. The tour was planned to support new album,Cavalier Youth (http://bit.ly/CYiTunes), which shot to No. 1 on both the Billboard Heatseekers and UK rock charts. Fueled by previous single “Lived A Lie,” whose companion video (http://bit.ly/1jWbhe3) is quickly closing in on the 2 million views mark, Cavalier Youth has been drawing rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
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.
