Power-pop addicts, meet your new favorite band: Dude York. The Seattle-based riff-rock trio is powered by the grit of the Reatards and the hooks of Van Halen. Following 2014's debut LP, Dehumanize, the band has signed to Hardly Art for Sincerely, their sophomore album, due out next February. Originally planned as a self-made recording, the LP features production from John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill) and JR Slayer (known to most as the Blood Brothers’ Cody Votolato).

As guitarist / vocalist Peter Richards explains in a press release, the record is "about losing perspective — a spiraling-inward perspective despite what may be ready support networks around you." He continues: “It’s like, ‘I don’t need anybody’s help. I should be able to do this myself, because it’s just, like, living.'" Fitting words for our current trying times, indeed.

And now, it's time for some fun and games. Here's "Black Jack," our sugar-laden first taste of Sincerely. Scroll down to check out the album artwork and track list.
