You Me At Six have said that recording their new album made them "ill" in an exclusive interview which can be seen above.

The band recently released their album 'Sinners Never Sleep' which debuted at Number Three on the UK album chart last week, selling an estimated 27,000 copies.

Singer Josh Franceschi said that the album, which was recorded in L.A. made them ill. "It was recorded in Los Angeles which was a life experience which we thought we'd never have."

Guitarist Max Helyer added: "You ask a bunch of 22-year olds (about recording there) and they'd be like 'it's fucking sick, we're going to party all night. He continued:

But after the fourth week we thought 'this is too much'. I was getting sick after partying all night and being in the studio all day. It wears you down.

He added that the "turning point" came when the band cut off contact with their manager, record label and "turned off their email."

The band recently extended their tour, they added extra shows in Manchester, London and Birmingham due to popular demand.

The Surrey rockers will now play O2 Apollo Manchester on March 28 and 29, Birmingham Ballroom on March 31 and April 1 and O2 Academy Brixton on April 2 and 3.
