You Me At Six has shared a special orchestral performance from the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
The band teamed up with the 30-piece Wired Strings Orchestra to perform a version of « Glasgow » from their new album « SUCKAPUNCH. »
« Recording a Glasgow version with an orchestra at the historic Abbey Road Studios was a collective goal of the career, » frontman Josh Franceschi said in a statement.
« It was really special to take a song written in my basement, record it in Thailand and then perform it live at Abbey Road Studios. »
Watch the performance below.
The band released « SUCKAPUNCH » last month, which directly entered the UK album charts at number one.
In her acceptance speech, Franceschi took a moment to address the rockers’ naysayers, telling OfficialCharts: « Perhaps the most important thing is to thank everyone who has made us suffer or discarded us or said that we were finished. This is for you. We made this album for you, to remind you to put a little respect in the name. «
In a four-star review of « SUCKAPUNCH », NME’s Ali Shutler wrote: « It’s rare that a rock record feels so exciting, especially coming from a band with seven albums and, you know, Surrey, but every single on « SUCKAPUNCH » feels inspired in a way. Making this album made You Me At Six believe in their band again, and it would be hard not to keep the faith too.
You Me At Six is set to tour the UK in May with a series of special album launch shows, including one celebrating the 10th anniversary of their second album « Hold Me Down » in July.
