Following their sold out UK tour, including three nights at London’s Brixton Academy, You Me At Six have revealed their first ever animated lyric video for new single “Straight To My Head”, the third single from their new album VI.

Speaking of the inspirations behind the visual, director Peter Reeve explains “We’ve been long time fans of both You Me at Six and Rick and Morty, so when we had the chance to bring the two together we of course jumped at it! We had a lot of fun creating this and bringing together ideas from the band and using imagery from their back catalogue to create a crazy animation.”

Frontman Josh Franceschi says “We’re excited to share our first ever animated music video, and this is collectively our favourite song from the album. The video has some fun references in there to our other videos from this new album too – we hope our fans enjoy it.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
