French speakers may get a vastly different interpretation of British rock quintet You Me At Six's latest track "Little Death" than their English counterparts. While lyrics like, "We are not your lovers/We are not your friends/We are just sinners and we're condemned to death/We are not your lovers/We are not your friends/Forget what you believe in/'Cause this is the end" conjure up self-pitying tales of bleak desperation and mortality, singer Josh Francheschi recently noted the title's more direct meaning as a French idiom for, um, uh, this delicious cocktail of the same name.
The group already scored a hit with "Loverboy" a few weeks back. The midtempo, anthemic "Little Death" is already blowing up overseas, with the band, who recently received Kerrang Magazine's award for Best British Band (no big deal!), aiming to replicate their success Stateside. But it still should get U.S. fans of the Surrey group pogoing (trust us, it's a thing) in no time.
After main stage performances at monstrous UK festivals Reading and Leeds and last year's Vans Warped Tour, the group embarks on a cross-country U.S. tour starting tomorrow, where fans can preview tracks from the new album, Sinners Never Sleep.
Sinners Never Sleep, the group's third album, is out Jan. 24 on Virgin.
