MAY 17, 2019 – Acclaimed British band, YONAKA, have announced their signing to Fueled By Ramen in the U.S. Today the band has shared their latest single “Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow,” the title track from their forthcoming debut LP, Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow. The new single – which follows previously released album tracks “Lose Our Heads” and “Creature” – is streaming now at all DSPs, along with an official music video on Fueled By Ramen’s YouTube channel (Watch HERE). Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow arrives worldwide on May 31st.
Hailed by The Guardian for crafting “shiny, armoured pop with metallic, QOTSA-style riffs, hip-hop rhythms and grimy UK attitude,” YONAKA will make their eagerly awaited US live debut next month. The band has announced two U.S. performances – Tuesday, June 11 at Brooklyn, NY’s Rough Trade NYC and Thursday, June 13th at Los Angeles, CA’s House of Machines. Tickets for both dates are on sale today at www.weareyonaka.com.
Produced by YONAKA and engineered by bassist, Alex Crosby, Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow sees the Brighton-based band’s vocalist and songwriter, Theresa Jarvis, pulling inspiration from deeply personal well.
“The album’s title is a message about reaching out to someone,” says Jarvis, “picking up the phone and making a call; it’s about knowing it’s ok to not be ok. The title track is a personal favorite of mine. We can’t wait to release the album and we hope it resonates with our fans as much as it does with us.”
Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow follows a steady stream of acclaimed tracks, EPs and sold out live dates for YONAKA. The band arrived in 2017 with their debut EP, Heavy, soon followed by 2018’s Teach Me To Fight, the latter EP spawning the breakthrough single “Fired Up,” streaming HERE. Produced by the band, Tom Dalgety (Pixies, Ghost, Royal Blood) and grandson, the track reached #1 on BBC Radio 1’s Specialist Chart while also garnering reams of critical praise. YONAKA’s self-produced third EP, Creature, arrived in late 2018, highlighted by its hit title track, streaming HERE.
Championed by The Times as “a band gearing up to fill arenas,” YONAKA has spent much of its lifetime lighting up increasingly bigger stages at venues across the U.K., including packed headline shows, European festival appearances at the likes of Reading & Leeds, Primavera, and All Points East, and a special guest role on Bring Me The Horizon’s sold out U.K. / European arena tour.
