Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet w/ The Yawpers & Sam Spades
Friday, October 7, 2016
The Yawpers are a stripped down, brazen rock and roll band from Colorado, accompanied by overdriven acoustic guitars and a trap kit, with Nate Cook on lead vocals, Jesse Parmet on slide guitar and harmonies, and Noah Shomberg on drums. Inspired by Whitman’s promise to “sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world,” the Yawpers have created a sound that is equal parts frenetic, earnest, and menacing, all while bringing together disparate pieces of the American musical lexicon. With having only released their debut album, Capon Crusade (2011), in 2015, The Yawpers have toured the US with notable heavy hitters, touring with Nashville Pussy and The Blasters. Signed to Bloodshot Records, the band released their sophomore album American Man.
