You Me At Six have announced special plans celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their milestone UK Gold certified album, ‘Sinners Never Sleep’. The album will receive its first ever vinyl pressing, including previously unreleased material over a deluxe x3 LP package due May 27th 2022 via UMC, alongside two huge live shows where You Me At Six will perform the album in full. Pre-order here.
The news arrives as You Me At Six wrap up a string of huge UK arena shows with long-time friends Bring Me The Horizon, which included London’s The O2.
Released by Virgin Records on October 3rd, 2011, ‘Sinners Never Sleep’ reached #3 in the UK album chart on its release, selling over 182,000 copies and cementing You Me At Six as one of the most important and influential bands in UK alternative rock. Songs like ‘Loverboy’ and ‘Bite My Tongue’ (ft. Oli Sykes) proved transcendent and genre-shifting classics. Created whilst You Me At Six were barely out of their teens, ‘Sinners Never Sleep’ was applauded for and fuelled by heroic hooks and towering choruses, lauded as the heaviest album they had ever made both sonically and lyrically at this point in their career.
The tenth anniversary will see ‘Sinners Never Sleep’ released on vinyl for the first time, including an expanded coloured vinyl 3LP set featuring the entire album, the 2012 ‘The Final Night Of Sin At Wembley Arena’ album, and a third LP of unreleased rarities. Alongside this will be the standard 12 track album on 1LP, a 3CD deluxe package, and previously unseen bonus material.
You Me At Six will perform Sinners Never Sleep live in its entirety at two special anniversary shows on June 1st at Leeds Temple Newsam and June 2nd Hatfield Park. Tickets are available for presale on 29th September via album pre-orders, with general sale (early bird price) on 30th September, and general sale (full price) on 1st October.
The news of the band’s ‘Sinners Never Sleep’ celebrations follows their thrilling return to the live circuit, and first shows since the release of their UK #1 album ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, including a string of sold-out headline dates and surprise set at this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals, with Kerrang! commenting “one of the UK’s biggest modern rock bands popping up at lunchtime on less than two days’ notice is one of the most pleasant surprises…on this blistering form, anything feels possible”.
You Me At Six are one of the most successful alternative rock bands in Britain. Their 15 year career has seen two UK Number 1 albums, four UK Gold Records, six Top Ten Albums in the UK, and 17 consecutive A-List singles on BBC Radio One. In addition, they’ve sold out multiple US headline tours, with a Number One rock song in the UK, Australia, and Top Five Rock Radio track in North America.
Following the release of their 2021 UK #1 album, ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, You Me At Six continue to work on new music.
