Yuck are set to unveil their new guitarist at a trio of shows at London’s Macbeth.
The gigs – the band’s first in almost two years – will take place from September 17-19, and be the first shows for new member Ed Hayes, who was previously a bartender at the pub in which the shows are taking place. Watch a video about the band finding their new guitarist below. After a number of European dates, Yuck will return to the UK to play Manchester Soup Kitchen on October 2 and Kingston’s New Slang on October 3.
The band will release their new album ‘Glow & Behold’ on September 30. It is their first since the departure of frontman Daniel Blumberg and features Max Bloom on vocals. ‘Glow & Behold’ album has been produced by Chris Coady.

We’re getting ready to go to New York this week to record our 2nd album! Unfortunately, Daniel won’t be joining us as he’s decided to focus on other things. However, new music, new tour dates, and bigger afros will be coming very soon. So get ready. GET. READY.”
