God bless those cheeky scamps in You Me At Six. Growing up in the public glare ain’t easy, especially when your Myspace account acquires you the sort of fame at 15 that plenty of old pub rockers are still craving long into their 30s. But in the hermetically-sealed dome of next generation e-fame, every move is scrutinised, and every misstep recorded. Quite literally everyone can hear you scream. Or not of course, because the quintet from Weybridge have always been the poppiest of pop punk acts. Not quite Mcfly, but for a long while not too far short.

Album: Your Demise – The Golden Age

The most telling moment of  Your Demise’s fifth studio album comes right at the end of its third song, ‘Born a Snake‘. Vocalist Ed McRae yells “MOTHERFUCKER!” into the mic with all the force he can muster before breaking out into a childish giggle. Y’see, Ed isn’t taking it too seriously, and Hell, why should he? Mid 20’s guy rockin’ and rollin’ with his buddies in a young punk band – The Golden Age of his life? You better believe it. So if Ed isn’t taking it too seriously, why on earth is everyone else?

You Me At Six were commissioned to write a song about a rollercoaster. GTFO.

March 7th, 2012

Hugh Platt is a bitter, old man, but he’s not as clever as he thinks he is. You Me At Six have just confused the hell out of him, for example.

You Me At Six YMA6 The Swarm Thorpe Park WTF Thrash Hits

I now this got announced yesterday, and really, given our form at irritating fans of You Me At Six by repeatedly not providing them with the uncritically-positive reviews their fanbase craves, we probably should’ve been on this sooner but someone somewhere in Thorpe Park’s PR department thought it was a good idea to give You Me At Six money to write a song about their new rollercoaster.

In other news, humankind are apparently still the dominant species on planet Earth, which remain the only known object in the entire cosmos where life has been proven to exist.

Back in 2008, around this very time of year, a slew of incredibly hostile and grammatically-imprecise comments were thrown in my direction. The reason? A review I wrote of You Me At Six’s debut album. You can read it here. My personal favourite was from a rather pleasant chap called Stuart Lunken: “You Are a Fucking DickHead!” he wrote. “Im Guna Find Where You Live And Actually Rip Your Fucking Head Off.” (sic) Raaacch made a well-argued point, too – “you need a new pair off ears and a different job cuz your obviosly utter shit at this one” (sic) – while Will made a very reasoned and measured statement: “the writer is obviously a spastic”. To be fair, Natalie, behind a string of misspelled words – or shuld tht b werdz? – made a valid point: “fuck off!!u basically tuk a luk at a foto of them and decided u didnt lyk them, it happens 2 b an amazin album and hes not from fuckin dorset” (sic). She’s right. Josh Franceschi isn’t from Dorset. I got Weybridge (in Surrey, where YM@6 originate) confused with Weymouth (which is in Dorset) – and for that, I can only apologise. Nevertheless, the point – about him singing in a nasally, affected American accent when he’s actually from England remains the same. As does my opinion of the album. It’s truly terrible.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Slam Dunk Festival Thrash Hits

Sweet Drunken Bank Holidays ahoy! That’s what we like best about May – two four-day weeks, and two three-day weekends. They’re the perfect excuse to do even less work and spend even more time eating, drinking, listening, watching, and shoving metal into every orifice we’ve got going. We’ve picked 3 albums, 3 tours, and 3 events to help you select when, where and how you choose to stuff yours.

2008 into 2009: You Me At Six

December 10th, 2008

Josh FranceschI, vocalist of emo upstarts You Me At Six, talks about his year fronting one of the hottest young British bands around, as well as his sexy girlfriend. We could get a sexy girlfriend as well if we really wanted to. Honest.

What was your highlight of 2008?
My highlight of 2008 was playing and selling out the London Astoria with You Me At Six! It was a huge achievement for us. Also, when our album broke into the Top 40 and got as high as number 15! That was sweet.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
The worst thing was my dad getting really ill when I was on tour, which really is the worst thing to happen to someone.
