Yuck Premiere Video Alongside Tour Updates


U.K. band Yuck has updated their touring schedule, alongside dropping a new NSFW (and kind of creepy) music video to accompany the song “Shook Down.”

The band just wrapped up playing the Pitchfork Music Festival, along with several other show dates around the midwest region of the country. The band will be touring throughout July.

“All Shook Down” is a very soothing and peaceful song which makes the contrast with the music video much more creepy. Check it out right here

7/28: Cellar Door, Visalia, CA *

7/29: Casbah, San Diego, CA *

7/30: Troubadour, Los Angeles, CA *
