You Me At Six release their highly anticipated new album SUCKAPUNCH today via Underdog Records / AWAL. The band will be celebrating the release with ‘A Virtual Evening with You Me At Six’ on 16th January, alongside a headline tour through the UK in May, with exclusive live dates in July - a rare chance for fans to see the band live in some of the UK’s most intimate venues.

Hailed by Kerrang as a ”creative KO”, SUCKAPUNCH is the sound of You Me At Six pushing themselves beyond expectation. Rock Sound describe the band’s seventh album as "bold, brash and brimming with attitude and innovation", and the NME said "It’s rare for a rock record to feel this exciting."

CLASH praised "a hard hitting and forward thinking record”, DIY welcomed “a version of You Me At Six we’ve never seen before”, The Sun confirmed "their most radical record to date” with the Sunday Times Culture adding, "some of their hardest rock is here, but the stand-out is the gorgeous Glasgow, a break-up ballad until it explodes”.

‘A Virtual Evening with You Me At Six’ will take place on 16th January, available to all fans who pre-order the album via the band’s official store - The ‘Virtual Evening With…’ will offer fans a chance to watch an extended 20 minute edit of ‘The Making Of SUCKAPUNCH’ Made In Thailand documentary, a Q+A with the band, and exclusive footage of the ‘Live From Gunnersville’ career-spanning live set.

SUCKAPUNCH release celebrations continue with the announcement of a brand new Limited Deluxe Edition of the album, available on transparent violet vinyl (ltd edition), including a 7-inch flexi-disc and glow in the dark detailing, from 15th January.

Recorded over five weeks at Karma Sound studio in Bang Saray, Thailand, SUCKAPUNCH sees You Me At Six pushing the experimentation of their 2018 UK Top 6 album ‘VI’ even further, continuing their creative relationship with that album’s producer, Dan Austin (Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, Pixies). Brimming with ambition, sonic influences dive boldly into electronic music, hip-hop and R&B, some of the songs tread entirely new territory, others twist rock into fresh forms. All of it springs surprises. ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ is the sound of a band embracing change. You Me At Six have crafted their most experimental, personal and progressive record to date.

You Me At Six are one of the biggest and most prolific British rock bands of the 21st Century. Their 15 year career has seen four UK Gold Records and five Top Ten Albums in the UK, including Number One record ‘Cavalier Youth’, an unparalleled 17 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One, multiple sold-out US headline tours, and a Number One rock song in the UK & Australia, and Top Five Rock Radio track in North America, in ‘Room To Breathe’.
