Yautja Premiere “The Weight” Video

Yautja have premiered a new video for their new song “The Weight.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Lurch,” which will be released on May 21.

The video’s director Jerry Roe (Friendship Commanders) commented:

“Yautja have been one of my favorite local heavy bands for a while and they’re a group I consider truly unique and energizing in Nashville, and in heavy music in general. Up to this point, I’d only directed videos for my band Friendship Commanders and my bandmate’s solo music, so I was really excited when they asked me to make this video. I’ve long been proud to consider them peers in our local music scene here, so I was overjoyed to work on something with them together as members of this loud but small heavy music community here in Tennessee.”

Yautja’s Shibby Poole added:

“[This is] a song for those who, while given the opportunity to remain silent, go out of their way to make things harder for others.”

Yautja Premiere “The Spectacle” Video

Yautja have premiered a new video for their new song “The Spectacle.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Lurch,” which will be released on May 21. Oddly, instead of offering their own details on the track, the group decided to have Mike Paparo (Inter Arma) share his thoughts:

“‘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.”
