The Yawpers sign to Bloodshout, announce American Man 10/30/15

by Woody on September 17, 2015


The Yawpers’ name stems from a line in Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass”: “I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.” Hailing from Denver, they are the latest entry on to the venerable Bloodshot catalog. They played a bastardized version of delta blues and punk. American Man will be their sophomore effort. Here’s a little something on the track below. “‘Deacon Brodie’ is a perversion of the story of William Brodie, who was a Scottish cabinet maker that moonlighted as a thief,” Cook reveals. “We tried to couch his darker side in sex, masochism, and the joy of deception. His story is also interesting in that he is credited with having designed the gallows that he would eventually hang from himself.”

I also strongly urge you to check out the video for Silicone Love off their first album. It is American As Fuck and very well may be the greatest video ever made.
