Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
British rockers You Me At Six have added seven more dates to their UK tour, playing debut album Take Off Your Colours in full.
They’ll now be playing three nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton, as well as regional dates in Leeds, Newcastle, Bournemouth, Sheffield, Norwich and Nottingham.
The special shows celebrating ten years since their acclaimed debut join the already announced headline shows to mark the release of their new album VI – due for release on the 5 October 2018.
The new record also celebrates a partnership between the band and AWAL, releasing under their new Underdog Records imprint.
They’ll be joined by Marmozets and The Xcerts across all dates.
Recorded at VADA Studios with Bristol based producer, engineer and mixer, Dan Austin – of Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, Pixies fame – and for the first time co-produced by the band, You Me At Six’s new album promises to showcase Josh Francesci and co as you’ve never heard them before. Switching moods and styles with breathless confidence – the band blend together the iconic You Me At Six sound, with uplifting alt-pop, hints of electro-dance and their usual heavier tracks appealing to their long-standing rock fan base. VI is on the cusp of being uncategorizable. Familiar and raucous.
You Me At Six formed in 2004, and achieved success in 2008 with debut Take Off Your Colours. The band have had four Top 5 albums in the UK, including a Number 1 with 2014’s Cavalier Youth, and an unparalleled 15 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One.
