Boise, Idaho - Approximately 20 people turned up for You Me At Six’s rainy set on the 2009 Warped Tour and frontman Josh Fraceschi is essentially pissed. He thinks everyone in his band are “arseholes”, he’s looking up flights and calling his parents only to be told off.
Looks like underdogs do eventually rise to the top after all.
The year is 2013 and even though it’s YMAS’ eighth time touring in America, it’s their first ever “proper” headlining tour that features the likes of Tonight Alive, Cute Is What We Aim For and Conditions. Like all their previous tours, they are closely accompanied by one Tom Welsh (aka GetDeluxe), the Elmakias to their A Day to Remember or the Sammy Roenfeldt to their TA.
With nearly 14 minutes worth of footage, the first episode of the band’s USA Headliner tour series is up and it looks like the lads definitely can’t get enough of the American experience. From appearing on prime time news (Fox, mind) to checking out Redneck gun conventions, the US seems to be boding well for YMAS (aside from the newly-coined “You And Me At Six” led by “John Franceschi”). The band’s live performances of their latest single, Lived A Lie are also featured in full and it comes in acoustic too!
Guitarist Max Helyer however, is the clear Man of The Episode this time round, charming us with his yodeling antics and the novel idea of having a shower in the rain. Now the only mission left is to bring this particular Paramore tour to Singapore…
