Surrey rockers YOU ME AT SIX have announced further dates celebrating the tenth anniversary of their debut album Take Off Your Colours later this year, bringing it ‘home’ to the O2 Academy in Leeds.
The band wrote the album in Leeds and released it via Leeds-based label Slam Dunk (now famous for their three-site punk rock festival) so it’s only fitting that they head back to where it all started to kick off their autumn tour.
Speaking of the tour, the band say: “We can’t wait to get out on the road in November and play new music from our new album VI live. On top of this, we know that Take Off Your Colours has played a huge part in a lot of our fan’s lives and we’re looking forward to playing that through in full on these added dates!”
Expect classic big-hitters Save It For The Bedroom, Finders Keepers and Kiss And Tell, as well as other bangers and new tunes from their forthcoming album, VI, probably.
And the icing on the cake comes in the fine forms of Bingley’s MARMOZETS and THE XCERTS.
