Sophomore albums have been known to be a bit of a bitch. The second album slump can become even harder when your first album was a critical success. They can be made even just a tad bit harder when your lead singer/songwriter decides to quit the band. Yeah, that's no big deal, right? Yuck
, however, is still soldiering on and even finding time to cover the New Order classic "Age Of Consent."
The cover, filmed in black-and-white and being called an "improvised film experiment" (read: a guy walking around a band rehearsal space with a camera) is fuzzed out in typical Yuck fashion featuring plenty of distortion and feedback. Former lead guitarist Max Bloom shows his chops behind the mic in the spot left vacant by Daniel Blumberg as the rest of the band bobs along to the classic cut off Power, Corruption, and Lies
. Check out the video below and stay tuned for Yuck's upcoming sophomore effort, Glow & Behold
, out on October 1st.
