Yak have dropped a new tune ahead of their upcoming UK tour

Yak have released a new single, ‘Bellyache’.

The song precedes their upcoming UK tour, which kicks off on 23rd October in York and includes a night at Bethnal Green Working Men's Club in London. The band also recently announced they’ve signed a new record deal with Virgin EMI for the release of their second album, which is ‘on the way’.

Guitarist Oli Burslem says of the track: “I was living out the back of my £205 car, completely broke as I had put all the money we had from the label into the band. It really felt like the last piece of music we would ever make and that we had to put everything we had into it. That's where the last lyric ‘if you’re going for broke just make sure you don't choke’ comes from.”

Check out ‘Bellyache’ below.
