Yuck frontman and singer, Daniel Blumberg has left the band “to concentrate on releasing his own music”, a statement from the group reads.

The announcement came via the band’s official Facebook page, with the original message reading:

“What’s up! Lots of new things have been happening in Yuck world. We’re getting ready to go to New York this week to record our 2nd album! Unfortunately, Daniel won’t be joining us as he’s decided to focus on other things. However, new music, new tour dates, and bigger afros will be coming very soon. So get ready. GET. READY.”

The band later added:

“Hey guys, just to clarify, Daniel has left the band to concentrate on releasing his own music. The three of us have written an album we’re all extremely proud of and we’re all very excited about recording it. We hope you’ll stick with us, your support means a lot to us. Max xx”

As Pitchfork note, Blumberg has another ongoing project called Oupa, although it’s not known if this is the venture he’s choosing to pursue. Yuck’s second album, and first without Blumberg, is expected later this year.
