Several emo and pop-punk bands found renowned success in recent years, but You Me At Six are going down a different road. The English band announced their split after two decades together, and they’ll say goodbye to their fans with the 2025 farewell tour.
You Me At Six frontman Josh Franceschi announced they’re going on a hiatus in an emotional statement on social media. He explained they only ever wanted longevity, to travel, and to experience life as a group of friends when they started YMAS as kids – and they were lucky enough to achieve this goal.
“We feel like on the eve of our 20th anniversary as a band, now is a good time to call time. We’re in a fortunate position where our fans still want to see us live and come celebrate the life of this band. So that is what we will do for 2024 and 2025,” said Franceschi.
You Me at Six was founded in Weybridge, Surrey in the midst of the pop-punk craze during the mid-2000s. They went on to release eight studio albums by each other’s side, including last year’s Truth Decay and UK No. 1 albums Cavalier Youth and Suckapunch.
