Britain is a music manufacture with a seal of approval and Yard Act are proof of that. Hailing from Leeds, the post punk band is socially critical, political with that finely pointed British humor. Next year their new album will be released and with it they will go on Dream Job Tour all over Europe.
Singer James Smith, bassist Ryan Needham, guitarist Sam Shipstone and drummer Jay Russell make up the northern English quartet, who released their first track in 2020 and were listed as "One to watch" by "The Guardian" only a short time later. They played their first gig in Germany at the Reeperbahnfestival, where they won the Anchor Award. The debut album "The Overload" followed in 2022, with that unmistakably British sound of captivatingly grooving spoken-word dance-punk with influences from Art Brut, The Fall and the Sleaford Mods, but always remaining Yard Act.
In just a few years, the band has built a base of loyal listeners who surely can't wait to see them. In Munich, Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne the audience can look forward to this special northern English charm, because Yard Act have fresh tracks in their luggage and are ready for the groove!
