Yucca King - "Panic Attack #2"

When you get a press release that lists the "for fans of" as Dismemberment Plan, Faith No More, Soundgarden, Primus, and Jesus Lizard, the music is going to be strange. And the latest single from Yucca King definitely fits that. "Panic Attack" is loud, noisy, and groovy, fitting every single one of the previously mentioned bands in some way, with more than a little Frank Zappa sprinkled in. Vocalist Greg Arent describes the song much better than I possibly could:

"When I was in my early days of sobriety I struggled with crippling panic attacks. Every time I had to go out and be social without booze I would have a total meltdown. I always wanted to write a song about that feeling and the music in this song seemed to fit; with the dirty bass, screaming guitar and herky-jerky drumbeat. We want the song to actually make people feel anxious."

You can listen to "Panic Attack #2" below. Popcorn, but also House Fire, the new album from Yucca King, will be out April 26. You can pre-order the album via Bandcamp. For more on Yucca King, check out their website. Current Tour dates are below the song.
