YUCA, the Langley, Canada-based trio, released their CD Rebuilding the Fallen Empire this fall. The band members are Matt Borck on Lead vocals and guitar, Andy Boldt on bass and backing vocals, and David Atkinson on drums.
“The title has a double meaning,” says Matt Borck, YUCA’s primary songwriter, singer-guitarist. “It means reviving rock n’ roll, but it’s also personal. We’ve been in the trenches and working our butts off for the band, so it also symbolizes making our dreams a reality.”
The group has performed multiple times for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics; and had a song picked for Playstation3, Xbox360 Vancouver Olympics 2010 Video Game. They have toured relentlessly doing over 375 shows nationally and internationally.
