Blues-influenced heavy metal band ALL HAIL THE YETI has signed with Minus Head Records. The group’s first release for the label will be a special reissue of their self-titled debut, including three previously unreleased demo tracks. In addition, the band has just wrapped up the recording process for its their upcoming full-length album, set for release this coming spring.
ALL HAIL THE YETI will hit the road with 36 CRAZYFISTS, kicking off on Sunday, December 6 in Fullerton, California.
Beginning as the brainchild of Canadian vocalist and tattoo artist Connor Garritty, ALL HAIL THE YETI is drowned in whiskey, campfire smoke, and blues of the ugliest kind. Since coming together in 2006, ALL HAIL THE YETI has earned a local following with their swampy, chaotic guitar tone and Garritty’s “look ‘em dead in the eyes” stage demeanor. In 2010, the band released its debut EP, “Trees On Fire With Songs Of Blood”, and quickly graduated from everyday Hollywood shows with their local kin for higher profile tours with the likes of IN THIS MOMENT, ESCAPE THE FATE, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, BUTCHER BABIES, and more. A year later, the band solidified their claim to metal fame with the release of their self-titled debut full-length, produced by Tommy Decker and Mike Sarkisyan. The results proved that ALL HAIL THE YETI has learned to master the riff and make it feel as good as it is savage, with New Noise Magazine stating, “ALL HAIL THE YETI is going to be a major player in the metal scene… they have what it takes to stand apart from others while still keeping familiar enough to resonate with the current metal culture.” Additionally, PlanetMosh described the album as “ten tracks of in-your-face, aggressive yet atmospheric and groove-laden hardcore metal.”
