[News] Live at Leeds 2014 Announces Initial Line-Up 

It's that time of year again when festivals big and small begin to tease their fans with the artists that will be gracing their stages. Of course there are the huge announcements Stateside with Outkast reforming for several dates both on US soil and UK. But here at SKoA we're focussed on the ones close to home; For myself (Shey), that's Live at Leeds. A wonderful event that takes place across the city of (you guessed it,) Leeds, and draws bands from a smorgasbord of genres to venues throughout the city. Last year I had an absolute blast and the event was one of my highlights of the festival calendar. This year looks set to top it as they've announced their initial line-up which you can see above via the fancy new poster.

Making up the bill are Albert Hammond Jr, Blood Red Shoes, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Chloe Howl, Drenge, Pulled Apart By Horses, Wolf Alice, Yuck and hoards of other damn fine bands. 

Taking place in 2014 on the weekend of 2-5th of May, tickets are priced at just £25 and for the stuff you can see for that price, I'd snatch up a ticket fast. Grab them over here.

[Watch] Yuck - "Middle Sea" (Official Video)

Many were worried about the future of Yuck after lead singer Daniel Blumberg quit the band at the start of the year, but ithe band came back fighting with the insatiable track "Middle Sea" which sees them taking a slightly new direction and sound. It still has that Yuck familiarity to it though. The dirty-overdriven guitars and sludge.It somehow seems a little brighter in sound though. The video for the track offers up something I'm sure a lot of us can relate to: Family feuds. The clip see drummer Jonny Rogoff face off in a tennis match against his 'father' and it doesn't take long for it to boil over as emotions take hold. The amount of arguments my family had when we went to tennis courts was ridiculous. Although I never smashed a racket like the older gentleman here.

The band are set to release Glow & Behold on September 30th and in support of that will tour the UK and support the Pixies. Not bad, huh?! Dates after the jump.

[Listen] Yuck - "Middle Sea"

Yuck are set to return with a new record, Glow & Behold, which is set to arrive later this year. It's surprised quite a few people after lead singer Daniel Blumberg quit the band at the start of the year, but if this new track titled "Middle Sea" is anything to go by, they're going to be just fine. Fuzzy, effects pedal laden guitar tones and a catchy chorus that'll have you singing along on your first play. Wonderful. More of the same please.

[Listen] Yuck - "Chew"

Last night a brand new Yuck track was debuted on British Radio and moments later it hit the web, naturally. The UK band released their brilliant self-titled album last year and this is the first new material we've had from them in a while and it sounds very promising. Not that we thought it wouldn't! The track is titled "Chew" and is packed to the rafters with filthy guitar lines and great sounding vocals layered perfectly to keep you coming back for more. The band even told fans:

Ok, here it is! Listen to our new song 'Chew' right here! Everyone coming to Coachella, memorize the lyrics...

We may not be hitting up Coachella but we will certainly know the lyrics by this evening!

[Listen] Yuck - "Natsu Nandesu"

Check out a fresh new Yuck track which appeared on the Japanese version of their debut album. Funnily enough this track is a cover of the Japanese band Happy End and their track "Natsu Nandesu". It's a different kind of vibe to their usual stuff as it's a female led vocal but hey, give it a spin. It's a welcome change for sure.

[Watch] Yuck - "Rubber" Live in Room 205

Yuck's throw back sound has been met with open arms when visiting Room 205 in the first of a three part series. Performing an epic 10 minute version of "Rubber" from their self produced debut the director Michael Reich, editor Forrest Borie, and set designer Tamarra Younis threw together a 90's vibe with the footage being filmed on crappy VHS tapes the footage and the extended cut make for both a great listen that will mellow you out a little and an interesting feast of fuzzy images that will take you back to the home made videos of you childhood. You know the ones where the whole family would gather around the tiny TV to watch blurry footage chopped together by your would be Spielberg Granddad when all you wanted to be doing was playing with a Yo-Yo or something? 

Whatever, give the video a watch at the top. It's a lot better than the stuff your Grandad used to try and show you!
