You Me At Six release iPhone App!

Some call it the sport of kings; others consider it to be the purest form of ancient combat. Now mainstream infiltrating pop-punks You Me At Six have immortalised thumb wrestling with a new iPhone app themed around their current album release ‘Hold Me Down.’

The ‘Hold Me Down’ game features unique, intuitive controls that mimic real life thumb wrestling. You can test your skills against a computer opponent, battle your friends on a single iPhone or use Bluetooth networking for the ultimate dual iPhone face-off.

The game is also integrated with the OpenFeint platform so players can accumulate points by completing challenges against the computer. The more points you get, the more chance you have of receiving exclusive You Me At Six goodies! There is also a global leaderboard to check your progress against other players.

Best of all, you can play as each and every member of the band. So if you’ve ever wanted to take on the world as Josh, pitch Max and Chris against each other in a six-string thumb war, or see Matt and Dan in a rhythm section showdown, here’s your chance!

The app only costs £1.19. Just visit the iTunes App Store and download it here:

Set to fly into the charts, ‘Hold Me Down’ finds the Surrey quintet fulfilling their potential with a collection of soaring hooks and irresistible melodies. It captures the band’s live exuberance with ‘Playing The Blame Game’ breaching the gap between pop-punk energy and the snappy immediacy of new wave, while ‘Safer To Hate Her’ alternates between a tender, melancholic riff and a fiercely defiant chorus.

Album opener ‘The Consequence’ caused ripples of excitement when its hi-octane thrills were made available as a free download from the band’s website. The first full single to be taken from ‘Hold Me Down’ will be the crunchy power-pop attack of ‘Underdog’ that’s released on February 7th.

You Me At Six’s famously adrenalized live show hits the road in March for their first UK tour since the release of their second album ‘HoldMe Down’ that infiltrated the mainstream by crashing into the charts at #5. Last seen as guests on Paramore’s arena trek, You Me At Six’s growing reputation as one of the nation’s most scintillating emerging bands is set to be solidified with a tour that concludes with a landmark show at Brixton Academy on March 20th.

They have also been confirmed as one of the acts to play HMV’s music festival ‘Next Big Thing’. The show, which sees the boys being backed by Young Guns and This City, takes place at the Relentless Garage on Feb 8th. Earlier in the day the band will also play an acoustic set and signing at HMV Oxford Circus.

Tickets, priced at £10 in advance, are available from www.hmvnextbigthing.com or from the box office 0844 847 1678.
