After ten years and four albums Britain's "You Me At Six" said they are finally starting to see their hard work pay off. SOUNDBITE: Josh Franceschi, You Me At Six, saying (English) "You Me At Six come of age and smash it. Dot, dot, dot and smash it." The five member band is in the middle of a headlining tour to support their new album "Cavalier Youth," which has been their most successful release thus far. SOUNDBITE: Dan Flint, You Me At Six, saying (English): It's the first time we've properly had any music released over here and actually had someone behind us driving the music and trying to get our songs on the radio and on TV and things like that. It's the first time that anyone has tried to do that over in the States and it's paying off. So we're like 'why didn't we do that before with the other three albums.' But we're just excited that we get the opportunity that someone actually believes in us over here." The video for the first single "Room to Breathe" features clips from over 40 shows and the band claims it has caught the eye of some veteran rockers. SOUNDBITE: Dan Flint, You Me At Six, saying (English): "You get like the live performance stuff. Or you can actually watch the in the studio part of the video. It's quite an interesting take on a video. Saw it quite recently from another artist actually." SOUNDBITE: Matt Barnes, You Me At Six, saying (English): "I think Bono is in that band, ripping us off." As the musicians, who call themselves a strap and guitar band with big sing along chorus', continue to gain fame they say they will never forget their initial mission statement. SOUNDBITE: Josh Franceschi, You Me At Six, saying (English) "To have fun and to have longevity. And I think we so far achieved that and we've achieved some incredible milestones along the way. I personally have no desire to work a nine to five job in an office I don't particular like. And I kind of like this and we're kind of good at it and it's kind of working out so let's just keep going with it basically." On October 27th the band will release a special CD/DVD edition of "Cavalier Youth" in the UK.
