You Me At Six Release New Song, MAKEMEFEELALIVE
Weybridge wonders You Me At Six have unveiled their new track MAKEMEFEELALIVE, and premiered its slick, haunting split-screen video, featuring British actor Leigh Gill (Joker, Game Of Thrones).
“This song is about having control, it being taken away from you and then finally reclaiming it,” explains singer Josh Franceschi on the song’s meaning. “The video is all about the notion of needing to see clearly to feel alive. The desire of understanding where you started, and where you’re going, so you know when you get there.”
Back in July, guitarist Max Helyer tweeted that “The wait isn’t long” for a new YMAS album. And speaking around the release of previous single Our House in February, Josh revealed that the new material is their riffiest in almost a decade.
“This record is probably the heaviest we’ve been since Sinners Never Sleep (2011) – the stuff that’s been put together is the rockiest record we’ve had in a long, long time,” he said.
“So Our House… actually couldn’t be further away from it. That, again, is why it’s a standalone single and why we’re using it in the way we are, because it just wouldn’t work with all the other stuff. When [the record’s] right, it will come out, basically. We’re still working towards that. But everything feels good in the camp!”
When asked about the timeframe and if this music will be coming before the end of the year, Josh replied: “One hundred per cent. We probably would have had music out in the spring anyway in terms of songs, without Our House. There is stuff that feels ready and there is stuff that feels right. I don’t know if we’ve finished the record yet. I don’t feel like we have.
“There’s still that elusive thing that people in bands are in pursuit of, which is their masterpiece,” he continued. “You sometimes don’t know if you’ve made it or not until years down the line someone goes, ‘Yeah, that was great.’ Or not just one person but a whole massive society goes, ‘That was fucking amazing,’ and it’s lauded over for years and years. But I don’t feel like we’ve done that. None of us feel like we have. So I think we’re still in pursuit of trying to attain that.”
