Official video unveiled
UK TOUR & SPECIAL ‘TAKE OFF YOUR COLOURS’
10TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS
You Me At Six today celebrate the release of their superb new studio album VI, by unveiling the highly entertaining video for their latest single ‘Back Again’. Inspired by The Big Lebowski, which turned 20 years old this week, the video follows on from frontman Josh Franceschi’s ‘3AM’ antics, this time, set in a bowling alley. Watch HERE.
On the themes of the new video, director Daniel Broadley explains; “Following on from 3AM, I wanted to carry on doing something that fans of You Me At Six wouldn’t expect. With dancing ticked off the list, I felt like comedy and playing homage to a cult classic film would be a fun way to go, and the guys really ran with it. I’m not sure I’ve laughed more whilst on set!”
Josh Franceschi comments on the making of the video; “Back Again is a really fun and lighthearted song for us and we wanted to have a video which also reflected that. As soon as we read Dan’s treatment we knew it was perfect especially as we’re all fans of bowling and it was an excuse to do that and also chill with my dog for the day!”
As well as releasing their new video, You Me At Six continue today’s celebrations by teaming up with vegan fast food connoisseurs Temple Of Seitan to launch ‘You Me At Shish’, a pop-up vegan kebab shop set to feature a special ‘VI’-themed food and cocktail menu, a You Me At Six set, DJs and more.
Fans can arrive today at the Temple Goods Cafe, Hackney Downs Studios, 17 Amhurst Terrace, E8 2BT from 6PM, for an opportunity to meet the band, buy copies of ‘VI’, get exclusive merch, sample the exclusive You Me At Shish menu, cocktails and watch a special full band electric set at 7PM, followed by DJ sets into the evening.
‘You Me At Shish’ will arrive during the band’s week-long run of UK in store performances and signings, beginning October 4th at New Slang at Przym, Kingston Upon Thames, followed by a signing at London’s Rough Trade East on October 6th and more dates detailed below.
With latest single ‘Back Again’, and album standouts ‘IOU’ and ‘3AM’, You Me At Six are showcasing a multi-dimensional evolution with ‘VI’. Replacing what was once distortion and big rock riffs, for indie-pop prowess and a set of explosive new live favourites, set to be heard this November as part of their UK headline tour.
The band have also set out plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’ this November and December. Due to phenomenal demand, seven additional dates were added to the initial three that sold out in just twenty minutes. These special one-off events will see seminal genre-classic ‘Take Off Your Colours’ performed in its entirety.
