You Me At Six have announced that they will be playing their largest headline show to date in December.

The Surrey rockers, who played a very well-received slot at last weekend's Reading And Leeds Festivals, will headline London's 12,500 capacity Wembley Arena on December 8.

The gig is being billed as 'The Final Night Of Sin' as it will be the last show of the band's tour in support of third album 'Sinners Never Sleep'.

Speaking to NME about the gig in a video, which you can see at the top of the page, drummer Dan Flint said: "It's a landmark occasion for our band. We've been talking about how to get our band to arenas for a while and how we were going to do it and we thought this would be the perfect time."

Guitarist Chris Miller added: "We've played Wembley before supporting so to play it as our own band is going to be crazy. To be getting to venues like is scary and it's hard to imagine that we'd have got that far just playing as kids in our garage, it's an amazing achievement."

The pair also spoke about their plans for the follow-up to 'Sinners Never Sleep', with both suggesting that though they were thinking about new material, a fourth album was a while away yet.

"There's a few ideas floating around," Miller said. "Whenever we have a band practise together if we get bored we'll jam new things and go over new stuff. We try not to pigeon-hole ourselves and say things like 'From January to March we'll be writing'. It's a constant process."

Flint then said: "I'm already excited about doing it again, but we're going to take our time on it."
