YACHT Release 7" Single, Tour UK With Patrick Wolf

YACHT is putting out their latest album "See Mystery Lights" via DFA Records on July 28th, but as an added treat the duo is releasing a limited-edition 7” vinyl single called "Don't Put Out" (Marriage Records) on June 16th. YACHT have also announced a new ten-date tour of the United Kingdom with Patrick Wolf, kicking off May 15th.

"Don't Put Out" is a small homage to the film Ladies And Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains, a 1981 film by Lou Adler about a fictional all-girl punk band called The Stains. The message of the film, and YACHT's single: "Don't be an old man in a young girls' world."

The two tracks on the single, "Waste Of Time" and "Professionals" (which features Suzi Corpso) are songs originally performed by The Stains. On "Don't Put Out," "Waste Of Time" is re-imagined as an apathetic bubblegum disco track, and "Professionals" is sung by Suzi Corpso with three-chord guitar backing by YACHT's Claire L. Evans.

Suzi Corpso is longtime YACHT collaborator, the artist Rebecca Carlisle-Healy, sometimes known as RGB by RCH. Carlisle-Healy has recently finished Arrive Maris En Ronde, a beautiful science fiction film which stars Evans as a robot from the future named LITH.

There will be 1,000 copies of "Don't Put Out" pressed worldwide, and the tracks will be available digitally as well. A dub version of "Waste of Time" and a remix by Hedford Vachal will be featured on the next YACHT 12" single on DFA Records.

You can currently stream "Waste Of Time" on YACHT's MySpace page.
