It’s only been a wee three months or so since we first bit into Yuck‘s self-titled debut, but Daniel Blumberg – who has recently indicated he doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon – has already put together a new UK-only double A-side single for “Shook Down”. Due out June 27th, the single also features new song “Milkshake”, which you can hear below. The new cut is a balmy strummer that slightly recalls a little Pavement, a little Jesus & the Mary Chain, but, most importantly, a whole lotta Yuck. Sounds like the band’s coming into their own – at least slightly. Fun.

Along with the single, Yuck has announced a handful of U.S. tour dates for this July. You can find the band entire touring itinerary below the stream.
