Yukon Era Release Video for 'Tongue

December 14th 2018
Yukon Era's single 'Tongue' was originally released in January 2017, it reached #3 on the NZ Alternative charts.

This was followed by the ‘Feel' which was released in June 2018 and accompanied by an appearance at The Great Escape festival and UK/AUS tours. 'Knife Skies' followed September 2018, says Clash Magazine of 'Knife Skies' "The band blend the feral bite of IDLES or Shame with rhythmic complexity, an awareness of math-rock fringes that includes names such as Don Caballero".

These three singles are the first showings from their debut album set for release in early 2019.
Carving out a name for themselves within the local and international post-punk music scenes as the youngest band to perform at Australasia's most iconic festival St Jerome's Laneway. The group have extensively toured NZ as headliners, as well as notching up opening slots for big international acts including Mac Demarco, Japandroids, Viet Cong and METZ and have completed tours of Australia, The U.K and Europe.

The Auckland, New Zealand based post-punk quartet have released two well-crafted EPs to critical acclaim - their first self titled EP (2016) and second EP - Consume & Scratch released in late 2016. Both garnered attention and praised from the likes of Noisey, Tone Deaf, Impose Magazine, Sniffers, and The Wireless, and they were named as one of the Top 8 Kiwi guitar bands by Impose Magazine, which praised them for their "old-fashioned rock and roll cut from the same cloth as Polvo and Fugazi - embedded with a hint of classic kiwi jangle. A post-punk band on the rise, with the confidence and skill to make it big."

Yukon Era's songs are loud and melodic, quiet and chaotic. The band have created a modern and polished sound which they deliver via stubborn-ly classic garage rock. In the flesh, Yukon Era's greatest asset might the band's ability to convey their well-crafted tunes via a set brimming with youthful confidence to form something truly endearing, energetic and exciting.

Their debut full length is set for release in early 2019.
