Topman Generation:What can fans expect from your new album, Cavalier Youth?
Max:It’s definitely the most we’ve progressed musically while still maintaining our You Me At Six sound. It may sound arrogant to say, but I think it is definitely the best we’ve sounded as a band.
Josh:That’s not arrogant. You didn’t say “We’re the best f****** band in the world, deal with it”. Very nicely put.
Topman Generation:You mentioned the Arctic Monkeys, what do you think of their new album, AM?
Max:(instantly) Unbelievable Jeff. I pre-ordered it. I heard it about two months ago and I got the vinyl on Friday and literally the whole entire album is the best thing released in the UK in the last 10 years.
Josh:Until our album comes out in January….(smiles)
When they said my name I turned round to give Benedict a hug but there was a seat filler guy in his place because they had taken him up to present Steven Moffat’s award, so I was like, ‘Benedict looks different. Oh no, you’re not Benedict!’ I thought I was losing my mind. I think the other guy got a bit of a fright too!
