Despite several rumours cropping up here and there online over the past few weeks, You Me At Six frontman Josh Franceschi has confirmed that the band will not be playing their debut full-length album, ‘Take Off Your Colours’, from start-to-finish for their headline slot at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival.
In a recent interview, Franceschi commented, “The rumours are… incorrect. However, this being the 10th year of Slam Dunk as well as You Me At Six’s 10th year… we will be extensively paying homage to that with songs from our first record.”
Slam Dunk founder Ben Ray has also made the following statement in regards to the band’s headline set, “After seeing so many rumours flying around the internet about the You Me At Six set, I think it’s great they have let people know what they are planning to do. Although not the whole album, I think it will be enough to give the fans what they want! I am so proud for the album to have been released on Slam Dunk Records, and after not having seen them played live for a while, it will make the weekend even more special for me. It will certainly bring back some great memories!”
This year’s Slam Dunk Festival will take place at the O2 Academy, Leeds (May 23rd), The Forum, Hatfield (May 24th), and Civic Hall, Wolverhampton (May 25th).
Tickets for each date of the festival are available now, and can be purchased online from the official website (here).
