With 'Sinners Never Sleep' around the corner, Josh Franceschi has opened up about the band's bold new direction

Now this is where You Me At Six are really going to get interesting. Their new album 'Sinners Never Sleep' is - from the six songs we've heard - a heady brew of riffs, choruses and the band's boldest musical statements yet. If there's a reason it sounds ambitious it's because the band have pushed themselves harder than ever before to not only give their fans something to love, but to convert every hater with a pair of ears.

“The one thing I’ve noticed about this record is that it’s way more ballsy," singer Josh Franceschi told Rock Sound. "It has no straight-up pop moments and is incredibly rock-oriented throughout. I think this album shows how disconnected we’ve become from the pop-punk, happy-go-lucky, American-sounding scene that’s out there. We’ve maintained some of the qualities from ‘Take Off Your Colours’ but we’re moving forward.”

You can read more about You Me At Six's new album in the current issue of Rock Sound, which is onsale now from WHSmith and all good independent newsagents. If you're having trouble finding a copy of the magazine, click here to find your nearest stockist.
