You Me At Six write new song for Thorpe Park ride

You Me At Six have confirmed plans to release a new track later this month.

The band have recorded a song titled ‘The Swarm’, which will be used as the official soundtrack for Thorpe Park’s latest ride of the same name.

Speaking to NME about the ride and track, guitarist Max Heyler explained: “It’s basically about the end of the world and the ride is full of near-misses and loads of near-hits.

“It’s Europe’s tallest winged rollercoaster in the world and Thorpe Park told us it was going to be very scary, so we decided we’d rock it up a little bit more, make it a bit more heavier and a bit hairier.

“It’s a bit like ‘Bite My Tongue’, but without screaming. It’s a massive epic rock song; it’s definitely got aggression, and it’s definitely got edge.”

Heyler also revealed that they recorded the track with Foo Fighters producer Gil Norton in Bath before their upcoming UK tour, which starts in Belfast on March 14.
