You Me At Six to open pop-up kebab shop

You Me At Six have announced plans to open a pop-up kebab shop in London next month.

They’ve teamed up with vegan fast food connoisseurs Temple Of Seitan for the restaurant, named You Me At Shish, which will open for one night only on October 5 at Temple Goods Cafe, Hackney Downs Studios, 17 Amherst Terrace, to mark the launch of their new album VI.

Doors will open from 6pm and offer VI-themed food and cocktails, while the band will perform an acoustic set at 7pm, and DJ sets are planned into the evening.

The special night's entertainment takes place during a run of in-store signing sessions in the UK, which will be followed by a UK headline tour with Marmozets and The Xcerts.

Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Chris Miller, Matt Barnes and Dan Flint will celebrate their 10th anniversary at the shows by playing their debut album Take Off Your Colours in its entirety on some dates and material from VI on others.

The band said: “We can't wait to get out on the road in November and play new music from our new album VI live. 

"On top of this, we know that Take Off Your Colours has played a huge part in a lot of our fans’ lives and we're looking forward to playing that through in full on the added dates!”

Find a full list of dates below along with VI pre-order details.

Last month, You Me At Six released the single IOU.
