As London three-piece Yak add a Liverpool leg to their extensive touring schedule, Getintothis’ David Hall looks ahead to a riotous date.
Set for their biggest tour headline tour yet, including a Liverpool stop-off, Yak have just announced a run of shows off the back of their debut album and newest video.
The capital-based trio made their full-length debut earlier this year with Alas Salvation, produced by Pulp’s Steve Mackey, and Yak’s new single Use Somebody features a video directed by Douglas Hart of The Jesus and Mary Chain.
They have spent their summer in a prestigious support slot with The Last Shadow Puppets, in-between clocking up festival dates across the UK and Europe, including at Glastonbury and Isle of Wight Festival on these shores.
Having earned a reputation as a thrilling live act, Yak now look ahead to European shows of their own in September and October UK dates, rounded out with a homecoming to London’s Scala.
UK headline tour dates:
October 19: Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth
October 20: Think Tank, Newcastle
October 21: Broadcast, Glasgow
October 24: Picture House Social Club, Sheffield
October 25: Dublin Academy 2, Dublin
October 26: O2 Academy 2, Liverpool
October 27: Scala, London
