Sinners (and rock bands) Never Sleep - You Me At Six announce spring 2012 UK/ Ireland tour
Posted: 17th October 2011
Pop-punk and hardcore bands come and go, yet You Me At Six look like going the distance, if recent fortunes are anything to go by. New album "Sinners Never Sleep" has just burst into the charts at #3, quite an achievement considering the band formed six years ago, notched up Best British Band nominations at the annual Kerrang! Awards 2008-2010 and finally walked away with it at the fourth attempt this year. Well done, You Me At Six - not many rock-bands have come out of Weybridge, the well-to-do commuter town just a few miles east of Woking. Keeping it Surrey, right lads?
After forming in 2004, the quintet took a couple of years to get their first release under the belt - "We Know What it Means to be Alone" certainly struck a chord with local audiences, before further singles paved the way for their debut album, "Take Off Your Colours" appeared on Epitaph in 2008. Oddly, their biggest hit has been "Rescue Me", featuring Chiddy Bang's Chiddy on rap-vocals - the band have since distanced themselves from the song.
With the band still drunk on the success of the new album, a tour has been announced barely days after their last one finished. For 2012, they have employed the services of Kids In Glass Houses, Mayday Parade and The Skints to support them on what is going to be a hefty jaunt around the UK. The opening show is in Belfast on 14th March, followed by Dublin, then back to the mainland in Leicester and many more until Brixton on 2nd April. We will have tickets when they go on sale Friday at 9am. Prices start at £19 (£20 for London, €26 for Dublin).
