With the upcoming release of their newest studio album, YOU ME AT SIX are set to tour the UK – and that involves performing at the O2 Guildhall here in Southampton! Their newest album – sixth overall, fifth studio album – is set to be released soon, confirming their status as one of the most prolific rock bands to emerge from the UK.
The album was recorded in Nashville at Black Bird Studios and was produced by Grammy award winning producer Jacquire King – who has also worked with the likes of Kings of Leon and James Bay – and mixed by Andrew Scheps who has also worked with Black Sabbath and Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The release date is early 2017, but updates can be found on their social media pages here and here.
To promote their newest album, the band will be performing a number of underplay shows this autumn. Having already gained a reputation for being one of the best rock bands to come from the UK, with previous tours seeing them sell out such arenas as Wembley Arena and O2, their newest tour is sure to be no exception. This time playing in more smaller venues, their newest tour is a great chance to catch the band in their most intimate settings in years.
The tour will begin in Bristol at the O2 Academy on the 4th Oct, before moving onto the following venues on the following dates:
5 Oct – Folkestone, Leas Cliff Hall
6 Oct – Swansea, Brangwyn Hall
9 Oct – Belfast, The Limelight
10 Oct – Dublin, The Academy
13 Oct – Nottingham, Rock City Main Hall
14 Oct – Oxford, O2 Academy
15 Oct – Cambridge, Corn Exchange
17 Oct – Inverness, Ironworks
18 Oct – Leeds, O2 Academy
19 Oct – Liverpool, Guild of Students
20 Oct – Sheffield, O2 Academy
21 Oct – Middlesbrough, Empire
23 Oct – Southampton, O2 Guildhall
24 Oct – London, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
The group have sold over 600,000 albums worldwide, with three of their albums reaching top 5 and a UK number on on their latest album Cavalier Youth (2014). On top of this, they’ve netted thirteen consecutive A-list singles on Radio 1. With their popularity growing since then, their sixth album is sure to do great things.
