DIY Magazine describes them as "a berserk bunch who balance noise with a don't-give-a-shit mentality." NME says they're "notably non-conformist." The Quietus thinks they will "restore your faith in rock & roll." We here at Third Man have decided they are, without-a-doubt "favorite band material."

They are Yak, and they are set to release their most thrilling material ever THIS FRIDAY in the form of a second EP titled ‘No.’ Last month we unveiled the official video for the release’s title track. Today, we're pleased to share with you their second EP-related video for the track "Alas Salvation." Directed again by ex-Jesus And Mary Chain member Douglas Hart (who, as we mentioned last time, has also made videos for Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and The Horrors).

If you haven't worked it out yet, now is the time. Pre-order the 'No' EP on 7" vinyl HERE. That way, these 3 perfectly punky tracks will be spinning on your turntable by Friday's release day.
