You Me at Six Visits WGRD, Talks Harry Potter, ‘Room to Breathe’, Whether Piss is a Swear Word and More with Janna [Video]

Before rocking The Stache  Friday night, the guys from You Me at Six stopped by the WGRD studios. They were awesome enough to do a special acoustic performance for GRD listeners and sat down to talk with me about touring, their new album Cavalier Youth, their hit song Room to Breathe, and more!

Hailing from Weybridge, Surrey (which,  the guys informed me, is also where Harry Potter is from) these British rockers are pulling in crowds all over the states, now on their second US headlining tour.
