You Me At Six have shared ‘Adrenaline’, a brand new track taken from their highly anticipated new album ‘SUCKAPUNCH’, due January 15th via Underdog Records / AWAL.
‘Adrenaline’ arrives with demanding and bold assertion, driven by saturated bass and steeped in suspense as You Me At Six power into genre-breaking new territory. Speaking about the track, lead vocalist Josh Franceschi says:
“Adrenaline is about understanding & accepting the capacity we all have as humans to have split personalities. Coming to terms with the idea of co-dependency.”
‘Adrenaline’ is taken from the band’s eagerly-anticipated seventh studio album, ‘SUCKAPUNCH’. Described as “epic” by the NME, previous single and the album’s title track was hailed as one of the band’s boldest artistic statements to date with its anthemic amalgamation of electronica and rock. Rock Sound confirmed, “it’s big, bold, brash and another example of how far the band are willing to push their sound” where the Daily Star described You Me At Six as “the hottest band in rock right now”, following the announcement of a limited edition ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ vegan hot sauce. Recorded over five weeks at Karma Sound studio in Bang Saray, Thailand, the new album arrives after a tumultuous period of emotional blows, leaving the majority of the band getting to grips with new life scenarios. With themes rooted in reflection and redemption, ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ sees You Me At Six harness darker experiences as a catalyst for creativity, empowerment, and positivity.
The band was eager to push the experimentation of their 2018 UK Top 6 album ‘VI’ even further, continuing their creative relationship with that album’s producer, Dan Austin (Biffy Clyro, Massive Attack, Pixies). Brimming with ambition, sonic influences dive boldly into electronic music, hip-hop, and R&B, some of the songs tread entirely new territory, others twist rock into fresh forms. All of it springs surprises. ‘SUCKAPUNCH’ is the sound of a band embracing change. You Me At Six have crafted their most experimental, personal, and progressive record to date.
