CHART SPOTLIGHT. The British rock band You Me At Six reached new heights as the new single “Rescue Me” bows at No.21 on the singles tally tonight. The group comes from Surrey and was formed in 2005. The five-piece group got its breakthrough in 2007 when they were nominated in the Best British Newcomer category at the Kerrang! Awards. They lost to Gallows.
“Rescue Me” is the first single to be taken off You Me At Six’ third studio album, yet to be titled. It features Chiddy on vocals, one of the two members of the alternative hip hop band Chiddy Bang.
On Last.FM, “Underdog” is still the most popular track during the last week, ahead of “Stay with Me.” You Me At Six has previously recorded covers of Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed” as well as Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”
According to the music blog Good Music All Day, the song debuted on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show in early January. A version where the two verses from Chiddy were omitted circulated ahead of the radio release. WelcheMusic will keep you posted on forthcoming news about the group
