You Me At Six Sign to Epitaph

You Me At Six have signed a US record deal with Epitaph and will release their debut album in America 'Take Off Your Colours' in the summer.

Press Release:

"Epitaph Records is proud to announce the signing of one of the UK's hottest up-and-coming pop rock bands You Me At Six, with plans to release their debut album, Take Off Your Colours, this summer. The Kerrang! cover boys are already a house hold name and critical darlings in the UK, and consistently sell out venues across the country. Brace yourselves, because You Me At Six will be taking the scene by storm with upcoming performances at SXSW and this summer's Vans Warped Tour.

The Surrey based quintet You Me At Six started out just like any other, practicing in their families' garages and playing shows to their friends. Slowly building a fan base across the UK, thanks in part to social networking site MySpace, You Me At Six began touring the country, letting their fan base grow organically. Since 2007 the band has garnered over 8 million Myspace plays, two Kerrang! Nominations and toured with everyone from Fightstar to New Found Glory, The Audition, Angels & Airwaves and Fall Out Boy as well as numerous headlining tours and festival appearances.

Having all but conquered their homeland, You Me At Six have set their sights on the US and after signing with the legendary indie label Epitaph Records, the possibilities are endless.

"We're really excited to have signed with Epitaph as it's such a renowned label," says vocalist Josh Franceschi. "We're genuinely stoked for Take Off Your Colours to drop Stateside, and we're so happy it's with Epitaph."

Alternative Press named the band one of 2009's "100 Bands You Need To Know" and Kerrang! has called them "the UK's answer to Fall Out Boy." Check out one of the hottest bands coming out of the UK and stay tuned for additional tour dates and info about their exciting new album.
