You Me At Six are a 5-piece pop band from Weybridge, Surrey who formed in 2005. You Me At Six to spill ‘Liquid Confidence’ . YOU ME AT SIX’S meteoric rise from the underground to the mainstream continues unabated. Already scheduled to play their biggest tour to date next month, the quintet will also release their new single ‘Liquid Confidence’ on April 19th on Virgin Records. Combining tender emotions with the band’s patented exuberant energy, ‘Liquid Confidence’ utilises an acoustic opening and atmospheric vocal harmonies to create one of the band’s most anthemic moments to date. The single is taken from the band’s recently released second album ‘Hold Me Down’ that debuted at #5 as the second highest new entry of the week – three places above Delphic. Their biggest headline show to date at London’s Roundhouse will be surpassed with the Brixton date of their imminent UK tour:
14th – Glasgow, O2 Academy
16th – Leeds, O2 Academy
17th – Nottingham Rock City
18th – Southampton, Guildhall
19th – Norwich, UEA
20th – London, Brixton O2 Academy
Produced by John Mitchell (Funeral For A Friend, Enter Shikari, Architects) and Matt O’Grady (The Blackout, Hexes), and mastered by Bob Ludwig (Radiohead, Coldplay, Pearl Jam), ‘Hold Me Down’ has built upon the momentum which was established with their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’. The Surrey quintet has twice been nominated for Best British Band at the Kerrang! Awards and were also named Best British Newcomers in the Kerrang! Readers’ Poll. The five piece played locally until early 2007 when spring support slots with Saosin at Leeds Cockpit (03.05.07) and later Paramore at the Colchester Arts Centre (10.06.07) saw them attract media attention from the likes of Kerrang, Musicscoop and NME. In July 2007 they supported Tonight Is Goodbye on their summer tour along with Death Can Dance and then later that month were featured in Kerrang magazine in their new music section. The group were then recruited as support for firstly Fightstar on their September tour and then Elliot Minor in October 2007. Following their return from those tours they headlined a special Halloween show at the Kingston Peel with support from notable local acts such as Consort With Romeo and We Have A Getaway. In Nov/Dec of 2007 they released their debut single “Save It For The Bedroom” on Slam Dunk Records and then went on their first headline tour with support from Flood Of Red playing six dates across the country. In December 2007 the band were announced as support for The Audition’s February 2008 UK tour. You Me At Six were also nominated for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards 2007, the category eventually went to Gallows, and headlined the London KOKO whilst playing Klub Kerrang. On December 10th 2007 the band added the B-side to their single “Save It For The Bedroom”, “You’ve Made Your Bed” onto their official myspace.
