You Me At Six ‘Suckapunch’ – Album Review


Although 2020 was a horrible year for most, it was a surprisingly good year for rock and metal music. Biffy Clyro achieved their third UK number one album with ‘A Celebration of Endings’, System of a Down and Deftones finally released new music, and Machine Gun Kelly’s pop punk album, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’, reached number one in the billboard charts. As we wave good riddance to 2020 and look toward the year ahead, I am overwhelmed with the sheer number of artists planning a new album release for 2021. With bands such as Architects, The Pretty Reckless and The Foo Fighters releasing albums early, it is however, You Me At Six who kick off the year for me with their seventh album, ‘Suckapunch’.

Overall, ‘Suckapunch’ starts the 2021 rock music scene on a high, marking You Me At Six’s best album since 2011’s ‘Sinners Never Sleep’. The album finds You Me At Six at their most versatile as they oscillate between pop punk, punk and alternative club anthems. Sure, the album ends on a weaker note than it begins on, but thanks to some new hits like ‘MAKEMEFEELALIVE’, ‘Adrenaline’ and ‘Suckapunch’, You Me At Six’s seventh album is their best in almost a decade and a strong contender for their best album to date.

Suckapunch is OUT NOW and You Me At Six tour the UK on the dates above (COVID permitting)
