Hot off their heels of a recent appearance at a packed house for the Rok Lok 10 Year Anniversary Fest at the Knitting Factory, Long Island noisemakers YES SENSEI are pleased to announce the details surrounding the myriad of new releases they have coming out before the New Year touches down. First up is a 7 inch called 3 songs which will be released by Rok Lok Records and UK based Russian Folk Stories. You can preview the track â€œDonâ€™t Fear the Rifferâ€ from the forthcoming release at the bandâ€™s myspace page. In addition to 3 songs YES SENSEI will be releasing two songs on a split 7 inch with friends CMR as well contributing an exclusive track to an upcoming Dead Broke Rekerdz compilation. As the releases start to come out, YES SENSEI will have begun to pen material for a fourth full length album.
Formed in 2000, YES SENSEI has made their mark on the DIY underground with a sound that mixes together the jarring post punk of Unwound, the tonal trickery guitar rock of Sonic Youth, the rhythmic mayhem of The Jesus Lizard with the bouncy hardcore of The Minutemen. YES SENSEI has released three full length albums- What I Do Best is What I Do Worst (2002),We Who Transplant Sustain (2004), and s/t (2007) all of which were released on Rok Lok Records.
