UK Trio Yak have been wreaking havoc across Europe these past few months, and this fall will treat audiences to a new 7″ EP produced by Pulp’s Steve Mackey. The No EP is set for release on November 13th via Third Man Records and is available for pre-order now. The lead single and title track is streaming on SoundCloud after premiering today via Noisey who say”This snarly, overdriven cut from the band’s latest 7″ ‘No’ takes cues from Jack White’s roster of blues-rock, but bitten into with a gutter-punk fang and a growling British accents.” Described as “the UK’s most messed up and exciting new band” (Matt Wilkinson, NME/Apple), in the coming weeks Yak will bring their raw and hard hitting live set to CMJ 2015 for their first ever shows in the US. CMJ schedule and other upcoming tour dates below.

“A genuine force of nature… Yak is one of those bands that restore your
faith in rock & roll” –The Quietus

The release of the No 7″ EP follows the London-based trio’s much talked about early singles “Hungry Heart” and “Plastic People”, which came out on Fat Possum earlier this year and made a splash in the US. Stereogum were won over by “Hungry Heart”‘s “soul-crushing, foot-stomping fury,” and praised the music as “designed to evoke some kind of visceral reaction…” Following a lengthy UK tour with Peace, Yak will be performing their first ever US shows at CMJ’s Santos Party House (NME show) on October 15th, and The Mercury Lounge on October 16th. OnNovember 13th they take the stage at the Les Inrocks festival in France.
