SINGLE, ALBUM & TOUR NEWS: You Me At Six release single ‘Swear’, announce new album release date & tour dates


YOU ME AT SIX have announced new single SWEAR. The video , which was filmed at their recent underplay Shepherd’s Bush Empire show, which sold out in three minutes.

Their highly anticipated fifth studio album, NIGHT PEOPLE, is now due for release January 6th 2017, earlier than previously announced, through Infectious Music. The album will help to cement their status as one of the most important rock bands to emerge from the UK. It was recorded in Nashville at Black Bird Studios with Grammy award-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, James Bay) and mixed by Andrew Scheps (Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chilli Peppers).

Josh, The You Me At Six frontman gave evidence at the House of Commons on November 15th as part of a one-off session held by the Culture, Media and Sport Committee, which aims to pass through parliament an amendment to the Digital Economy Bill to stop the use of digital purchasing software by ticket touts.

Josh is the only musician taking part in the campaign and is very passionate about the cause, he adds “We are fighting the battle for fair prices for live music fans. Every artist’s touring career is built on the passion and support of their fanbase. For those true supporters to be ripped off by secondary sites and being charged double, treble the face value for the right to see their favorite artists is unacceptable”
