Rockers You Me At Six have announced their first show at Aberdeen’s P&J Live.
It will take place on Thursday, February 15 when they will be playing the latest music from Truth Decay and celebrating the 10the anniversary of their album, Cavalier Youth, alongside very special guests Deaf Havana.
As the dust settled on the triumphant campaign for 2021’s Suckapunch, the band’s second UK number one album, Josh Franceschi (lead vocals), Max Helyer (guitar), Chris Miller (guitar), Matt Barnes (bass) and Dan Flint (drums) regrouped and discussed ideas for their next move.
Franceschi said: “We were all very proud of the fact we’d tried lots of new things on Suckapunch and there was a lot of bravery in making that.
“This time, we wanted to hone in on a particular identity for the band, more so than we have in the past. We had to look backwards to figure out where it was we wanted to go.”
The quintet has emerged with a record that both celebrates and salutes a wildly successful career as one of British rock’s biggest modern bands at the same time as plotting an exhilarating way forward.
Franceschi added: “We are at our best when all five of us are on the frontline, living it and breathing it, all five of us swinging, putting their creativity into it. That’s what you get from Truth Decay.”
When the band were making Truth Decay, their mission statement was to remind everyone that there is not a band to touch them when it comes to making emo-rock. “Forget about it,” Franceschi said, “there’s nobody else that gets anywhere near it.”
Back on the frontline, everybody swinging, Truth Decay is the sound of a band celebrating the scene that they helped to build at the same time as showing where it can go next.
Louise Stewart, head of entertainment, exhibitions and marketing at P&J Live, said: “Having released their blistering eighth album Truth Decay at the turn of 2023, the band have racked up a huge catalogue of hits.
"Their mission statement was to remind everyone that there isn’t a band quite like them when it comes to making emo-rock, and this is your chance to find out why.
"As a more intimate gig, taking place in the venue’s Hall C, the atmosphere is set to be electric.”
