The Yugos are an Indie / Pop / Rock band from Northern Kentucky. Doing things their way, The Yugos transform their influences into a unique and active sound all their own - creating a punk approach to an Indie sound.
The Yugos were born from the brothers Gough (Jordan and Christian) who started writing and recording songs on their Mac in their basement for fun around 2009. Both brothers write the songs as well as play rhythm guitar, drums and do the vocals for the band. Wanting others to join in and rock out with them they searched and found lead guitarist Jackson Deal. By 2010 band member Magnus Wigginshades, bass guitarist and vocals, joined.
The band has been touring around the Northern Kentucky Cincinnati area since and have been accumulating a lot of fans as they go- from vinyl-collecting pop connoisseurs, college students, hipsters, soaked punk rockers, to straight laced and high schoolers. Their new fans were met with energetic performances and contagiously fun spirit that has kept them coming back for more.
The Yugos are not signed to a label yet, though they are looking to have their next album professionally recorded.
Their next album, self titled The Yugos, will be recorded over the next few months and they are looking for a cover / back design for it.
This album cover should be a fun and whimsical with slightly serious tone to it. They like to have fun but remember that they love what they do and take it seriously.
When this album is recorded it will be sold at all of their great shows as well as on iTunes. The creatives work that is chosen will be placed under a Creative Commons License and after 500 albums are sold the creative will receive a $750 licensing fee from The Yugos in order for them to use the design in further album sales.
The chosen design's creator will be receiving a signed CD from the band with their design being used.
