What songs will they play?
In July it was announced that You Me At Six’s eighth studio album, Truth Decay, is set to be released in early 2023 - given that it shares the same name as the tour, it’s safe to say that many songs from the album will be played.
The band released their first single from the upcoming album called Deep Cuts on 21 July.
Speaking about the tune, frontman Franceschi said: “Deep Cuts is about being on the outside looking in on people in your circle who are going through pain or a bad moment by being with the wrong person.
“Suffering because they’re holding onto someone or something that they could let go of.
“Knowing that they would be more than fine on the other side of it, but convincing them of that is easier said than done.
“Hoping they will eliminate the trauma by moving past it as quick as possible.”
It’s likely that the band will also play some of their most popular songs as well. Based on the Spotify streaming numbers, some of their biggest hits include Take on the World, Underdog, Bite My Tongue, Lose My Mind, Stay With Me, Room to Breathe, Beautiful Way and Our House.
