You Me At Six have announced their seventh studio album Suckapunch and a UK headline tour including Manchester Academy.

Suckapunch is due for release on 15 January 2021 via Underdog Records and Awal and will be followed in May by a run of six UK shows.

Speaking about the eleven track album and its reflective and redemptive tone, lead vocalist Josh Franceschi explained, “We have been in the pursuit of happiness for quite some time, both collectively and individually, only to discover that happiness is more than just a state of mind. We had to face our pain head on and carve it into something positive. Our seventh studio album is the result of us finding peace and acceptance of what’s been and gone.”

The album was recorder in Thailand over a period of five weeks as the band hit the studio with dozens of songs, loops and ideas ready to push the experimentation of their 2018 album VI.

You Me At Six’s most recent UK headline show was the band sell more than 40,000 tickets.
