For the past seven years, the London-based band Yuck has been putting out fun, thoughtful guitar music that references rock from every context. Today, the band is announcing their third full-length record Stranger Things, due out February 26 on Mamé Records. Their first single off the record, "Hearts In Motion" puts into action some of the band's biggest work to date. Their signature incorporation of fuzz and loudness is on full display, taken to Seattle-Arena levels of hugeness. It's like cutting hearts out of grimy flannel shirts and putting them into sound and song better than ever before.

Of the song, singer Max Bloom writes “'Hearts In Motion' is a song about how we deal with relationships. We're all just blasting through space on a huge rock, so what's the point in maintaining a relationship? Is it all just doomed to failure, or is it the one thing that we should be holding on to the most in this world? Who knows!”

For pre-orders, the band is rolling out a PledgeMusic campaign to make sure you get Stranger Things with a ton of cool perks, like Yuck covering the song of your choice, making them DJ your way cool party, or maybe just the record on Vinyl. You can also find it on iTunes right here. Listen to the song and find tour dates below.
