You Me At Six Bio:

It takes a special kind of band to be able to write instantaneously catchy, hook-driven pop-rock songs whose appeal cuts across generations, continents and gender. In the recent past, 
US-based bands like Fall Out Boy and Panic at the Disco made it look easy, and now, a new generation of young bands has emerged to take up the cause. Leading the way is the undeniably impressive You Me At Six, whose bittersweet, sugar-coated hooks and hard-rocking riffs have fans jumping, sweating and singing to every word from shore to shore.

You Me At Six began as most bands do: friends coming together and playing music to pass the time. United by their love of bands such as Fall Out Boy and Blink-182, the South East England based quintet started out practicing in their garages and playing shows for friends. Slowly building a fan base across the UK, thanks in part to MySpace, You Me At Six began touring the country, letting their fan base grow organically. By the summer of 2007, with over a million plays on their MySpace page, the band played a support slot to a sold out crowd at London's Underworld club and it was clear this band was a cut above. Kerrang! Magazine ran an ‘Introducing' feature on the band soon after, marking the beginning of what promises to be a very long career for Josh Franceschi (singer), Max Helyer (guitar, backing vocals), Chris Miller (guitar), Matt Barnes (bass) and Dan Flint (drums).

After touring in support of bands like New Found Glory, Angels & Airwaves and Fall Out Boy among others, You Me At Six recorded and released their debut album, Take Off Your Colours, for UK based label Slam Dunk Records in late 2008, which debuted at number 25 on the UK charts.

The band's wave of success soon reached US shores, where they caught the attention of Epitaph Record's owner and founder Brett Gurewitz. The band signed to the label at the beginning of 2009 and Epitaph plans to re-release Take Off Your Colours in the US with additional songs that July.

Virtually a household name in Britain, it's no surprise that You Me At Six already have an established army of fans in the US awaiting their arrival. The band's revival of fun-loving, care-free spirited pop-rock is infectious and spreads with each lyric on Take Off Your Colours. Listeners fall fast for the band's teen-relevant lyrics of heartache, bad breakups, jealousy and the frustrations of love and the non-stop rockfest of single-worthy sing-alongs like "Gossip," "Save It For The Bedroom," "Take Off Your Colours" and "Finders Keepers" (available exclusively on the re-release). Take Off Your Colours proves without a doubt the band has the ability to craft some of the catchiest pop-rock anthems that this new generation of rock bands has to offer.
