All Hail The Yeti have signed with The Oracle Management and are currently working on a new EP with producer Steve Evetts. With this news, the band have also announced the addition of guitarist Dave Vanderlinde to their lineup.
Frontman Connor Garritty said the following about recruiting Vanderlinde:
“Dave has an unbelievable talent. The writing process has been painless and some of the most fun we’ve had in a long time. His guitar playing is exactly what AHTY needed. Add that to his personality and hunger for success and you have the perfect combination.
He also added the following about working with The Oracle Management:
“The Oracle’s Dez Fafara and I have been friends for a very long time. He is probably the most responsible for my music career starting in California so many years ago. Circle back two decades and now the team is right where it needs to be. He is driven, smart, no bullshit and that’s exactly what this band needs.”
The singer also commented on the new EP:
“Sometimes when things need a new fire you have to go to the source of the flame. Steve is a genius and we could not be happier. Everything is sounding huge, and we have no doubt that this will be some of our best material yet. We are very anxious to unleash this beast on the world and we can’t wait for all our fans to be able to experience this life with us. HAIL!”
On another note, the group have also released a new lyric video for “Felo De Se” via Alternative Press. That track appears on their latest album “Highway Crosses” and Garritty said the following about it:
“The song is about a teenager that is bullied for being different. When he decides he’s had enough, he goes to class, slits his wrists and sprays his blood on his aggressors.
As a victim of bullying myself, I have zero tolerance for any form of it. With the climate of America’s society today, ‘Felo De Se’ hits the mark, spot on. Kids are tired of not being able to be themselves. Tired of feeling ashamed for being different than the norm [of] America’s youth. We say, ‘Stand up! Fight back!’ Be who you want to be. And none of us should feel any type of persecution for this. This is the flag for freedom of expression. Freedom to be different. Wave it proud!”
