Nashville underground trio YAUTJA make their Relapse Records debut with their highly anticipated new album, The Lurch, out May 21, 2021. Today, YAUTJA share the official visualizer video for “The Spectacle”.
YAUTJA’s new album amalgamates metal, punk and noise rock into a ferocious hybrid that has propelled them from the obscurity of the American South onto the international stage. The Lurch was recorded by Scott Evans at the legendary Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio in Chicago and marks another step forward for the innovative band.
Mike Paparo of Inter Arma comments: “The Spectacle, huh? I think the real spectacle here is that these three extraterrestrial life forms came together to create such alien but still undeniably organic and human music. A group that’s truly from some other world. Visit it. It’s worth the journey.”
Decibel Comments: “The Tennessee trio effortlessly fuses extreme metal, punk, and noise into such a unique brand of music… Seven years (and a handful of singles and splits) following Songs Of Descent, The Lurch showcases an already exceptional band at a grander, more diverse peak. That sentiment is largely apparent in their newest single, ‘The Spectacle.’ The track stomps between a seizing crawl and a furious death metal blast. The track seems to hang just off its axis, never quite settling into one rhythm more than the other. It masterfully reflects YAUTJA‘s unease and unsettled views of the world at large — be they sociopolitical, technological, or personal.”
The Lurch is out May 21 on CD/LP/Digital. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse.com and Digital Downloads/Streaming.
