You Me At Six have launched their own hot sauce to promote new album ‘Suckapunch’ because… well, I mean, because… because… I suppose bands making their own beers has become unremarkable.

“We have always loved our hot sauce, especially when we are on tour”, says bassist Matt Barnes, who apparently spearheaded the project in collaboration with sauce maker Lou’s Brews.

“It is an absolute must to spice up the Super Noodles and microwave meals when travelling on the tour bus”, he adds. “The ‘Suckapunch’ sauce is a habanero-based chilli sauce with distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. It starts with a big punch of spice, before the vinegar and sweetness come through and goes great with anything that needs a little punch of fire”.

Lou’s Brews founder, Lou, chips in: “I jumped at the chance to collaborate with the guys when I found out they’re all a bunch of spice heads. It’s been awesome working alongside the fellas, playing around with recipe ideas, and I’m stoked for the world to try our delicious little baby”.

If you fancy tasting this hot sauce, you’ll have to move as quickly as it’s likely to make you run for the toilet, as it’s limited to just 200 bottles and only available to people who pre-order the album on the band’s website.

With everyone basically confident that the COVID-19 pandemic will be long forgotten by the summer, the band have also announced tour dates to promote the new album. They will also play a socially distanced show at PRYZM in Kingston the day before the record’s release date, which is 15 Jan.
