You Me At Six with Young Guns, Stars In Stereo, The Downtown Fiction Often abbreviated YMA6 or YM@6, You Me at Six are a pop/rock outfit that formed in Surrey, England, in 2005. They quickly released an EP at the time, entitled We Know What It's Like to Be Alone, but it would be their subsequent live work and recorded output after signing with Slam Dunk in 2007 that would earn the band quite a bit of success, including a nomination from Kerrang! for Best British Band in 2008. With a more "screamo" sound as their foundation, You Me at Six slowly built a buzz around themselves in 2006-2007, playing larger and larger venues and attracting the attention of the aforementioned Slam Dunk. Soon after the deal was done, YMA6 released their first album, Take Off Your Colours, in late 2008. The album would go on to crack the Top 25 on the U.K. album charts, and earn the band an opening slot for Fall Out Boy on that band's U.K. tour. ~ Chris True, All Music Guide

"The band can move through a slinky blues jam, spin it into a stomping behemoth of rock riffage, and then fold it neatly into a Link Wray styled “cool yer jets” instrumental. You never exactly know what you’re going to get from Megabig, but you can rest assured that the band will play with precision, and that’s part of what makes them one of Austin’s best rock acts."
