YOLK is a six-headed monster that emerged from the underground of New York’s club scene. The band has a sound that is all their own, melding grooves into a sweaty pool of rock, funk, hardcore, metal, ska, and jazz.
Throughout their career, YOLK has independently sold over 50,000 copies of their first three albums. Over the years, YOLK has shared stages with bands such as Fishbone, Sonic Youth, moe., The Toasters, Ween, and Wyclef Jean.
Billboard Magazine called them “an alternative rock band energizing that genre with funky horns, electric guitars, and an eclectic outlook.”
The New York Press described them as “genuinely dangerous and deranged.”
Relix Magazine has said that “Yolk is an extraordinary, diverse band.”
The Village Voice complimented Yolk’s talents for “amping up funk, ska, and hardcore into a roiling miasma.”
Through years of dedication to the road, YOLK’s live shows evolved into intensely energetic, spontaneous car-wrecks. At a typical YOLK show, it would have been no surprise to see skinheads, hippies, jazz freaks, and club kids listening together. Yolk has not performed together in over 4 years, but is returning to their hometown Binghamton for a one-off show at Magic City Music Hall at Midnight on August 26th. This show may well turn out to be their last headlining gig…
