JOEL HOEKSTRA’S 13 PREMIERES 5th SINGLE “SAY GOODBYE TO THE SUN”
“Say Goodbye to the Sun” represents the heavier side of DYING TO LIVE,” explains Hoekstra. “It’s the monstrous voice inside us all that tells us to abandon hope. Vinny Appice (drums) and Tony Franklin (bass) provide thunderous support to the guitar riffs while Derek Sherinian (keys) adds tasteful playing throughout. Russell Allen (lead vocals) just flat out rips this one to shreds, while Jeff Scott Soto adds the killer backing vocals. I’m honored to have these guys bring this song to life for me. I hope you dig it!”

Today the London trio have unveiled the official video for the EP title track “No”. Directed by ex-Jesus And Mary Chain member Douglas Hart (who’s also made videos for Primal Scream, My Bloody Valentine and The Horrors), the disorientating, sense-exploding clip captures exactly why Yak are fast becoming known as the UK’s most ferociously exciting live band.
“I grew up listening to electronic/pop music way more than hip-hop/r&b, and unconsciously this track sounds more electronic than most of my previous work. It’s like I have gone back to my roots somehow. Sevdaliza is an amazing artist, and finding a new sound with this single has been a big inspiration to me. I’m excited for everyone to the rest of my new EP. It will be out before 2015 is over.” – STWO
