You Me At Six talk their tiny Stand For Something show: "It really is for the fans"

The band are gearing up to play one of their smallest shows in a long time tomorrow night.

Over the past few months, You Me At Six have been hitting the road, all to drill up excitement for forthcoming album ‘Night People’. Having already completed a huge run across the UK, it’s safe to say that things are reaching fever pitch for the band and now, they’re gearing up for a teeny tiny show at Camden’s Dingwalls. Unsurprisingly, it’s going to be an unmissable night.

After releasing four albums - and reaching the dizzying heights of arenas off the back of them - it’s with their upcoming full-length, however, that they finally seem ready to take a defiant leap into the unknown. “It’s a completely new era for the band,” frontman Josh Franceschi states, opening up about their intentions for this album. “We completely detached ourselves from music over the past eighteen months because we didn’t want any distractions, or anyone to influence our sound. We’ve gone and made a record in Nashville with the intention of making a record that has no attachment to a scene, or a period of time. We’ve just tried to do our own thing and the reason we put [album title track] ‘Night People’ out there first was to show that the rulebook had been thrown out.”

“The essence of [tomorrow’s show] is very punk rock,” Franceschi told us. “Dingwalls has been renowned for being one of those venues where – along with the Underworld and a handful of others in London – shows there are pretty insane. It’s a venue where, if you’re a good live band and your fans are up for it, it becomes one of those shows that everyone wants to be at. This show really is for the fans; it’s gonna be a really good show and we’re all looking forward to it.”

You Me At Six and Dead! play Dingwalls in London on 26th November. Tickets are sold out.
