You Me At Six Announces Break Up After Nearly 20 Years Together

After nearly two decades of making music together, the British rock band You Me At Six has announced their decision to part ways. In a heartfelt message shared on social media, the band expressed gratitude to their loyal fans and revealed their plans for a series of final live shows in 2024 and 2025.

The band, formed in 2005 and consisting of members Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes, Chris Miller, and Dan Flint, acknowledged that they were just kids when they started their journey. They always aimed for longevity and the opportunity to explore the world as a group of friends. As they approach their 20th anniversary as a band, they believe it is the right time to bid farewell.

The announcement was accompanied by a poignant video titled ‘Time’, where frontman Josh Franceschi recites a poem while strolling through a graveyard, reflecting on the band’s career. The video culminates in a giant flaming version of You Me At Six’s iconic VI logo.

In an additional statement, Franceschi shared his thoughts on the decision, highlighting the band’s desire to end on their own terms. Although they will no longer continue as a band, they are grateful that their fans still want to celebrate their music and legacy. As a result, You Me At Six will embark on a final tour in 2024 and 2025, eagerly anticipating the opportunity to connect with their fans one last time.

Having achieved considerable success throughout their career, You Me At Six released eight studio albums. Their albums, including ‘Cavalier Youth’ and ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, reached the top of the UK charts, and several of their singles, such as ‘Stay With Me’ and ‘Underdog’, received Silver certifications for selling over 200,000 units. Their most recent album, ‘Truth Decay’, released in 2023, continued their winning streak.

Fortunately, fans will have a few more chances to see You Me At Six perform live. The band is set to headline Slam Dunk festival in Hatfield and Leeds this May, marking their final UK festival performance. Additionally, they will be embarking on a series of intimate shows next month to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their album ‘Cavalier Youth’, with support from Deaf Havana.

This news might come as a surprise to fans, but the band members assure that it is a decision they have been contemplating for a while. They aimed for a sustainable career and wanted to leave their mark on their own terms. As they bid farewell to the music industry, they hope to be remembered as a band that resonated with their fans.
