You Me At Six are an English pop-punk band from Weybridge, Surrey, United Kingdom formed in 2005. They released a very early EP in 2005 named We Know What It's Like To Be Alone with tracks such as "New Jersey" and "The Lier And The Lighter". They have also recorded numerous songs, promoting four of them to singles, of which "Jealous Minds Think Alike" reached number 100 in the UK charts. They were also nominated for "Best British Band" at the 2008 Kerrang! Awards and "Best British Newcomer" at the 2007 awards. Their first studio album entered the UK Albums Chart at #25.
In the beginning they portrayed a more screamo sound, expressed in early demos such as "Promise, Promise", "This Turbulence is Beautiful" and "Noises". They released a four track EP at the start of 2007, with the songs "The Rumour", "Gossip", "Noises" and "This Turbulence is Beautiful". They played many local and smaller venues throughout 2006, then in 2007 began playing larger venues. Their support slot with Bullet for my Valentine at Colchester Arts Centre also drew the attention of media such as Kerrang!.
In November 2007 they were signed by Slam Dunk Records, an independent record label who produced and promoted the band's debut album Take Off Your Colours. The album was released in stores and for digital download on October 6th 2008 which reached number 25 in the album charts the same week. It is accompanied by a promotional tour beginning October 15th. The single "If You Run" from this album is also available to download for free from their website. On the 10th October they announced they would be supporting Fall Out Boy, (along with Boys Like Girls) on their UK arena tour.
