Yawpers Announce New Album and Tour Dates

Denver trio Yawpers will release a new album Human Question (ALBUM PRE-ORDER LINK) on April 19. New Noise Magazine announced the album, an album-supporting tour, and debuted the new song "Child of Mercy."

Following their critically acclaimed and meticulously plotted concept album Boy in a Well (set in World War I France, concerning a mother who abandoned her unwanted newborn), the Yawpers created Human Questionwith a contrasting immediacy. The album was written, rehearsed and recorded over a two-month period with Reliable Recordings' Alex Hall (Cactus Blossoms, JD McPherson) at Chicago's renowned Electrical Audio. The band tracked live in one room, feeding off the collective energy and adding few overdubs. Through the new approach, 10 songs connect with an organically linked attitude and style.

"I wanted to take a crack at using these songs as therapy, really," said lead singer and guitarist Nate Cook. "I think I've always been inclined to write more towards the dregs of my psyche, and explore my depressions and trauma, rather than describe a way out."

In support of the release of Human Question, the band will tour across the United States in April and May - also a return to SXSW in March - and Europe in May and June. All currently announced tour dates are included below.
