The much anticipated album from You Me At Six, ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, is due for release this Friday, 15th January. In celebration the band have planned an incredible live-stream show to take place the day after: Saturday 16th January at 6pm GMT.
The event will include a Q&A with band members Josh Franceshci (vocals), Max Helyer (guitar), Chris Miller (lead guitar), Matt Barnes (bass), and Dan Flint (drums). Furthermore, viewers will be treated to exclusive footage from their 2019 Live From Gunnersville show at Gunnersbury Park in London.
After the release of the ‘Live From Gunnersville’ EP bundles – available only from the official website – sold out, the virtual evening with You Me At Six was arranged as a “thank you” to their fans who bought it. Now that the EP bundles have all sold out, which the band said they “didn’t really think would happen”, anyone who pre-orders the new album ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ by 4pm GMT on Saturday 16th January will also gain free access.
Along with both the live footage and chat with the band, attendees will be able to watch 20-minute documentary ‘Made In Thailand’ about the process of creating the new album, shot by Amazon Music. They posted all the information to Twitter today, while Max Helyer wrote, “Thanks to everyone so far who’s pre ordered the record!! Hope you guys enjoy it as much as we had making it and can’t wait for you all to hear it finally!”
