Baltimore, Maryland’s Angel Du$t new album YAK: A Collection of Truck Songs will be released 22 October 2021 on Roadrunner Records.
The band have also shared the new song Big Bite, which is joined by a music video directed by Ian Shelton.
Produced by Rob Schnapf (Kurt Vile, Elliott Smith), YAK: A Collection of Truck Songs follows Angel Du$t’s 2019’salbum Pretty Buff, and sees the group channelling an anything-goes philosophy into their tightest, most forward-thinking material yet. Recorded over a two-month period in Los Angeles last year, the album is a rotating smorgasbord of percussion, guitar tones, effects, genres, and influences, fashioned in the spirit of a playlist rather than a regular record.
Vocalist and guitarist Justice Tripp explained, “People get really married to the idea of making a record that sounds like the same band. If one song to the next doesn’t sound like it’s coming from the same band, I’m ok with that.”
Put simply, Angel Du$t are the guys who do whatever you don’t expect.
Breezy but determined as they imbue their laid-back acoustics with sharpness, Angel Du$t continue to prove they are band averse to boundaries. The band’s Roadrunner Records debut ‘Pretty Buff’ was produced by Will Yip and earned the band critical acclaim and widespread international attention.
