Yuck frontman Daniel Blumberg has left the indie-rock band "to focus on other things," the group wrote on Facebook.

Band to Watch: London's Yuck Revive the Sound of Nineties Indie Rock

The British band released their debut LP, Yuck, back in 2011 and are about to head to New York to record the follow-up: "New music, new tour dates, and bigger afros will be coming very soon," the post read. "So get ready. GET. READY."

Yuck's fuzz-drenched, hook-riddled tunes made them one of the most exciting acts of 2011 and notched them a spot on our reader's poll for that year's best new bands. The group also swung by Rolling Stone to record a RS Live session.

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
