About You Me At Six

You Me at Six are an English rock band from Weybridge, Surrey. The band consists of lead singer Josh Franceschi, guitarists Max Helyer and Chris Miller, bassist Matt Barnes and drummer Daniel Flint. Formed in 2004, the name for the group originated as an abbreviation for the group making Friday night plans after a concert. The band has released eight studio albums and one live album.

The group achieved initial success in 2008 with the release of their debut album, Take Off Your Colours, which included the singles "Save It for the Bedroom", "Finders Keepers" and "Kiss and Tell", with the latter two peaking at number 33 and number 42 respectively in the UK Singles Chart. Their second album Hold Me Down debuted at number five in the UK, while their third album Sinners Never Sleep peaked at number 3, was certified Gold, and spawned the band's fifth top 50 single "Loverboy". Their fourth album Cavalier Youth debuted at number one and featured the singles "Lived a Lie" and "Room to Breathe". Their fifth album Night People released to mixed reviews in 2017. Their next album VI was released in 2018, followed by their seventh studio album Suckapunch which gave the band their second number one album in March 2021. In 2023, their eighth album Truth Decay was released.

You Me at Six has toured extensively, with appearances on Warped Tour, Soundwave, and has toured with Thirty Seconds to Mars, Paramore, Fall Out Boy, All Time Low and Bring Me the Horizon, among others. You Me at Six won the award for Best British Band at the Kerrang! Awards in 2011. The band's influences include American rock bands Blink-182, Incubus, Thrice and British rock band Arctic Monkeys. In February 2024, the band announced on social media that they would be splitting up after their 2025 tour.

You Me at Six formed in Weybridge, Surrey in 2004. The band's line-up consisted of vocalist Josh Franceschi, guitarists Max Helyer and Chris Miller, bassist Matt Barnes, and drummer Joe Phillips. The group released an EP, We Know What It Means to Be Alone in 2006, after which, Phillips left the band. He was replaced by Dan Flint, who the band had gone to college with, following the band's appearance at Slam Dunk Festival 2007. Flint was initially asked to fill in on drums for a tour, before being asked to join the band.

The band released another EP later in 2007. During summer 2007, the owner of Drive-Thru, Richard Reines, had arranged a meeting with the band. The band were ecstatic about the prospect and proceeded to wait in London for three hours, only for Reines to fail to show up.

Their debut album, Take Off Your Colours, came out in October 2008 on Slam Dunk Records. Six singles were released from the album: "Save It for the Bedroom", "If I Were in Your Shoes", "Gossip", "Jealous Minds Think Alike", "Finders Keepers" and "Kiss and Tell". Take off Your Colours was re-released as a "deluxe" version, with added tracks, and the band supported Fall Out Boy in late 2008. They were nominated for "Best British Band" at the 2008 and 2009 Kerrang! Awards, but lost both times to Bullet for My Valentine.
