Yard Act have joined forces with Napalm Death‘s Shane Embury for a live cover of Motörhead‘s hit ‘Ace Of Spades’.

The Leeds band recently kicked off the UK leg of their 2024 ‘Dream Job Tour’ earlier this week. While performing at their second show of the run at Rock City in Nottingham on March 14, Yard Act – comprised of James Smith, Ryan Needham, Sam Shipstone and Jay Russell – were joined by Napalm Death’s bassist Shane Embury for a live rendition of Motörhead’s 1980’s hit track ‘Ace Of Spades’.

“Nottingham. @Rock_City_Notts. That was special. Big love to you all. And big love to Shane @napalmdeath for joining us on stage for ‘Ace of Spades’,” the band tweeted. Though Yard Act have performed the ’80s track various times before, this was the first time they were joined by Embury on the stage.

Yard Act also performed their track ‘Dark Days’ from their 2022 LP ‘The Overload’ last night (March 14) after it was selected by fan who spun a wheel of potential songs that the band would play if chosen.

The band’s next stop of their tour will take today (March 15) at the O2 Academy in Glasgow. From there, Yard Act are set to make stops in Manchester, Newcastle, Belfast, Dublin, Liverpool, Bristol, Cardiff, Brighton and London before wrapping up the UK leg in their home city of Leeds. They will then make their way across Europe.

The band’s most recent release was 2024’s ‘Where’s My Utopia‘. In a four-star review of LP, NME shared: “In between samples from their comedy pals – standups Nish Kumar and Rose Matafeo – and references to all sorts of uniquely British phenomena: from ‘Fizzy Fish’ to Calpol and, er, Milton Keynes. Where’s My Utopia?’ marks an outlandish yet assertive second chapter for Yard Act, going toe-to-toe with the peculiar world that we find ourselves in.”
