English rock group You Me at Six was formed in 2004 Weybridge, England. That year, two local high school students Josh Franceschi and Max Heyler, who were big fans of Blink-182, Incubus, and Thrice, decided to form their own rock band. They were joined by a guitar player Chris Miller, a bass guitar player and vocalist Matt Barnes, and a drummer Dan Flint. To acquire fans, during their free time, the young men traveled all over the UK and gave free concerts.
By 2006, You Me at Six recorded and self-released the first EP, We Know What It Means to Be Alone, which brought them popularity. The band topped the list of the rock magazine Kerrang!
In May 2007, the band participated in Leeds University music festival, arranged by Slam Dunk Records. After the show, the group joined rock band Elliot Minor on their concert tour.
In October, the band signed a contract with Slam Dunk Records and released its first single “Save It for the Bedroom”. It’s worth noting that the proceeds from the single exceeded the money earned by the single released by Elliot Minor at about the same time.
