Surrey’s premier alt-rock franchise You Me At Six have spoiled fans ahead of their slots at Reading & Leeds and Gunnersville with the release of brand new single ‘What’s It Like.’

‘What’s It Like’ is You Me At Six’s first new material since 2018’s palette-cleansing VI and is a dramatic departure from anything you’ve ever heard the band do. They’ve been through pop-punk, alt-rock, and brooding synth-pop but this is a whole new world – and trust us, it works.

Frontman Josh Franceschi commented: “’What’s It Like’ is us flexing our creative muscles. Lyrically, it’s looking at our society in parts in 2019. I feel as though we are living in a time where we’ve lost our way a little bit. There are great innovators and pioneers which we can rely on, but there is also a feeling of the blind leading the blind, and a lack of humility present. Within the title and the chorus I sort of poke fun at those who are libertines or self serving – ‘what’s it like being perfect all the time?’. Life’s not a competition, but people have a tendency to play it out that way.”
