Yukon have been out on tour since the beginning of April, and come back to Baltimore for a show at the Wind Up Space this Saturday with The Violet Hour and Each Others.
This will be the release show for their new 7 inch. The new disc features "Life Inside", an almost 6 minute long track. The fellows of Yukon wanted to keep that one under wraps for now, but here's a track that will be on their self titled full length due out in the fall.
"Throws" is a pretty good representation of the direction Yukon are heading in - A dark and heavy brew of cave folk, and a more subdued feel than the likes of the Medallion EP.
Get more details on the 7 inch and the show this Saturday after the jump.
"Life Inside" will be a one sided 7 inch and will be limited to 100 copies. It's pressed to white vinyl and features hand screened white on white covers. The track utilizes math-rock elements similar to prior works from the band, and applies them to a guitar heavy folk rock epic.
Jams are controlled well, and it seems as if the freshly expanded lineup has shined Yukon in a new light. You can't help but recall bands of the early 90s FM alternative rock stations, especially with the deep and cavernous vocals. The burning Barbie doll in the "Black Hole Sun" video certainly crossed my mind, but Yukon's sound ignites a bit slower and a lot heavier.
The show Saturday starts at 10 PM and will run you seven beans.
