After forming the band when they were teenagers, You Me At Six has grown up amongst many fans, and being that statement gateway band into alternative music. 

The shocking news was announced via social media, where the band uploaded a sombre video setting to rest You Me At Six in a graveyard, catching glimpses of gravestones with the titles of each of their albums, reliving pivotal, bittersweet moments of the band over the years as frontman Josh Francheschi reads a eulogy, stating “Its time. Its time for the finish line.”
