Yak release video for new post-album track, ‘Semi-Automatic’

The band's UK tour will kick off in Portsmouth tomorrow.
Yak recently dropped a new double a-side single, featuring ‘Heavens Above’ (which you can hear here), and ‘Semi-Automatic’ – the video for which is now streaming below.

The two tracks came out of recent post-album sessions with Steve Mackey. “In-between touring in August we managed to squeeze a day in the studio with Mr Mackey and put down four tracks that we had written on the road,” explains Oli Burslem.

“‘Heavens Above’ and ‘Semi-Automatic’ are a result of that session and will be the last thing we release before disappearing and getting ready to record the next record. Both tracks are a simple and direct response to what is current and what we have seen, read and been part of over the period since the band started touring.”
