Brace yourself, America. The Yawpers are making a new album.
Since releasing American Man, their acclaimed debut album on Bloodshot Records last October, Nate Cook and company have been steamrolling everything in their path —and it doesn’t appear that the steamroller is going to run out of steam anytime soon. In fact, if anything, the guys are reloading, from the sounds of it.
The three-piece, which is slated to headline the Bluebird Theater on the night before Thanksgiving, are planning to squeeze in some time in the next month to record a new record, before it heads out on the road for a month-long tour with 4onthefloor from Minneapolis.
According to the band, the sessions are due to take place in the next few weeks in Chicago. Legendary bassist Tommy Stinson is slated to produce the album and Johnny Hickman from Cracker will apparently accompany the outfit to the Windy City, where he’ll serve as they’re “guru and confidant."
The last two records have been fantastic. This one should be even more amazing.
