There we are again : at the Muziekcentrum Trix for the Truth Decay Tour from You Me At Six with openers Yours Truly and The Hunna! You Me At Six promoted their new album “Truth Decay” with an almost sold out show after 4 years of not being in our country.
Tonight was the second show in Antwerp for Yours Truly: their frontgirl Mikaela and the whole band were excited to play our city again. We had luckily the chance to interview them a few hours before their show (coming soon on our website, stay tuned)!
Yours Truly got a timing of 30 minutes to kick off the show in the Trix Club. With their high energy take on emo-infused alternative rock, they kicked off their intro with Is This What I Look Like? from their latest EP, followed by Hallucinate. Even if they didn’t had such a long time, the crowd went crazy for them. Ending their set with High Hopes and Walk Over My Grave.
Setlist: Is This What I Look Like?, Hallucinate, Carless Kind, Composure, Lights On, Circles, High Hopes, Walk Over My Grave.
After the short set of Yours Truly, it’s now time for The Hunna. The dynamic between each other made it extra fun to watch them playing their set. The set, which lasted almost an hour, was a mix of new and old songs. The fans who were present sang along loudly mostly during their old song. From the beginning until the end of their set, there’s a warm reception from the fans in the venue. Ending their set with some high notes into the old ones like She’s Casual and Bonfire.
Setlist: The Storm, Trahs, Fugazi, Piece By Piece, Circles, Take A Ride, Babe Can I Call, Apologies, Lover, I Wanna Know, Untouched Hearts, Can’t Break What’s Broken, She’s Casual, Bonfire
Finally, the wait is over and it’s time for You Me At Six to arrive on stage, being a band for almost 20 years. Since their last stop in Belgium, they also released the albums “SUCKAPUNCH” and “The Thruth Decay”. The lights turned out, the whole band came on stage one by one, the crowd turned wild. Starting with Deep Cuts, the guitars and drums immediately brought us back into the punk-rock world and everyone who’s following them for the past 20 years felt immediately at least ten years younger.
Josh taught the audience a bit of the chorus of their latest single God Bless the 90’s Kids to make sure everyone could sing along later from their latest album that came out on the 10th February 2023. We went from guitar-riffs to a room full of flashlights during their song Take On The World.
Closing their set with Beautiful Way from their latest album was probably the most beautiful way to end it with such a banger. The whole crowd sang along until the very last second. The energy was consistent throughout their whole performance.
Setlist: Deep Cuts, Fresh Start Fever, Straight To My Head, HeartLESS, Bite My Tongue, What’s It Like, No Future? Yeah Right, Give, Stay With Me, Mixed Emotions(I Didn’t Know How To Tell You What I Was Going Through), God Bless The 90’s Kids, Take On The World. // Encore: SUCKAPUNCH, Underdog, Reckless, Beautiful Way.
After +/- 1h15, You Me At Six took us with them in the journeys of their albums “SUCKAPUNCH”, “TruthDecay” & “VI”. It was a successful evening that we will remember with bands happy for being here and playing our city and fans happy to finally see the bands again.
