The last few months of 2013 have been amazing for YOU ME AT SIX. They have just completed their first headline US tour, carried on to Europe where they joined up with 30 Seconds to Mars and then hit the UK with the band later this week for arena shows. By the end of December they will have played to over 250,000 people in the last few months. They then kick off the New Year with shows with Paramore in Australia and then release their long awaited fourth album CAVALIER YOUTH on 27th January 2014. Having already scored their biggest chart hit to date in September (No. 11) with first single Lived A Lie , with a million Facebook likes and almost the same amount of views for the video - they can rightfully claim their position as one of the biggest rock bands in the UK.
Recorded in Los Angeles CAVALIER YOUTH shows the band s grasp of a great melody and riffs, and how to make a brand new song sound like an instant classic. Producer Neal Avron has helped the five piece from Surrey make the album they have always promised to deliver. Vocalist Josh Franceschi comments For the first time, there's a real cohesiveness in our sound, with Max Helyer (guitars) adding We want to be a band that s listened to by everybody. The line up is completed with Dan Flint Drums, Chris Miller Guitars and Matt Barnes Bass.
