We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of The YeahTones’ new song “Lightning” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP by the same name, which is scheduled to be released this Fall through Position Music.
The YeahTones roar with their sophomore single, ‘Lightning,’ out via Position Music. Riotous guitars arouse your ears with a healthy gut punch before sinking deep down into this swampy strut. With the swagger just about boiling over, front man Jake Pinto explodes with the joyous revelation of a chorus “I’m waking up // now that you’re coming around // It’s like lightning struck // and I can’t keep my feet on the ground.” Whether the song is about a girl or America’s favorite morning pick me up – we’ll never know. What we do know is “Lightning” is best served loud – no sugar.
The track was recorded live in one take in Brooklyn and marks the band’s second collaboration with grammy nominated mixing engineer Claudius Mittendorfer (Weezer, Panic! At The Disco, Yak).
Live, The YeahTones erupt with punk energy to deliver the straightforward anguish of Jake’s unassuming songwriting. The band makes audiences thrash and scream, then hands out a goody bag of catchy riffs and melodies to take home for later.
About the band:
The YeahTones is the tenacious rock ‘n’ roll brain-child of bandleader and frontman Jake Pinto. Born of a natural healer and a business schemer (read: Florida man), Pinto’s deep-rooted lust for “peaceful” resistance has been long in the making.
In 2012, Jake graduated from private university with a degree in jazz music, thousands of dollars in debt and an ample angst for the injustices of the world. Plagued by the typical anger and isolation of a 20 something New Yorker, Jake set aside his pricey education in search of a new more liberating form of expression, enter The YeahTones.
On stage The YeahTones explode with punk energy to deliver the straightforward anguish of Jake’s unassuming songwriting. The band makes audiences thrash and scream, then hands out a goody bag of catchy riffs and melodies to take home for later. The proper “take home” version of this experience is encapsulated on a 2016 debut set, “Eviction Notice”. The YeahTones are working to ready a follow-up EP to be released in partnership with Position Music.
