Normally, losing the singer can cripple a band.
However Yuck have proved to be the exception. Suffering the loss of their frontman, the group simply re-convened with their second album 'Glow And Behold' (Track-By-Track guide here) finding critical praise for its tattered grunge riffs and bittersweet melodies.
Since then, the band have spent endless weeks on the road but found time across the holiday period to lay down a new track.
Posted online, 'Athena' feels like a lost Smashing Pumpkins cut but with a decidedly British slant. Early 90s alt rock with a melancholic, cinematic sweep, the band introduced 'Anthena' by saying:
"This Christmas instead of staying in and watching TV we got together and recorded a few new songs, the first of which we're extremely proud to show you right now. I hope you enjoy it! Keep your ears to the ground for more new songs in the next few weeks! And special thanks to everyone who's come to our shows on our US tour so far, its been a blast."
