Yak announce UK tour featuring Liverpool O2 Academy date



As London three-piece Yak add a Liverpool leg to their extensive touring schedule, Getintothis’ David Hall looks ahead to a riotous date.

Set for their biggest tour headline tour yet, including a Liverpool stop-off, Yak have just announced a run of shows off the back of their debut album and newest video.

Now Merseyside fans who were hoping to catch the band at the cancelled Liverpool Calling festival should be pleased to discover they have been rewarded with an O2 Academy date on October 26.

The capital-based trio made their full-length debut earlier this year with Alas Salvation, produced by Pulp’s Steve Mackey, and Yak’s new single Use Somebody features a video directed by Douglas Hart of The Jesus and Mary Chain.
