Scouse noisemakers YOBS announce their debut album with a new video.

The enigmatic Liverpool four-piece have unveiled the abrasive, uncompromising 'Wasted' from the forthcoming self-titled album which is due out on 3 May through Fuzz Club.

“I think Wasted came to us in our first session together, it was just dead natural," says frontman Joey Ackland. "It was inspired by a heavy weekend at a festival I played, in an old band. We had over-indulged a bit and after crawling to a portaloo, I ended up getting stuck in there for what seemed like a year. Every time I tried to leave I couldn’t find my way out. I ended up sat on the floor, giving myself a bit of a talking to ha! It’s a bit of a stomper, and one that people like to sing along to. Our first ever show was at Mountain Sound Festival in Italy, and when we played it, it just went off. They asked for an encore and we had no other songs... so we played that again, the crowd sang along with the choruses, it was boss. So, we thought this has to be one of the singles.”

Formed in 2022, the band cut their teeth onstage, playing shows with the likes of A Place To Bury Strangers, Mark Sultan, C.O.F.F.I.N, Alien Nosejob and more. Following on from last year's debut single ‘Fortune Teller b/w Cemetery Man’, they recorded the album over four days at London's Hackney Road Studios with producer/engineer James Aparicio (Grinderman, These New Puritans, Mogwai).
