All Hail The Yeti Working On New EP, Announce New Guitarist

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!”

All Hail The Yeti Premiere “Highway Crosses” Music Video

All Hail The Yeti have premiered a new video for the title track of their latest album “Highway Crosses.“ You can check that out below:

Connor Garritty commented:

“This is an exciting song and music video for us. As artists, you must always take risks and push yourself to try new things. Well, this was our moment. We teamed up with Jorel Decker of Hollywood Undead to write this song. This is the first time in the life of this band that we brought an outside person in to write with us.

Jorel has been a supporter since the very beginning, so everything just felt right. Now, flash forward to the video. This was one of the most fun and easy videos we have ever shot. Director, Brian Cox (Gemini Syndrome, Hollywood Undead), took my vision and went with it. The end result is the perfect combination of Sci-Fi and Thriller.

It all blends all so perfectly with the music. We are so excited to unleash this on the world! It’s bridging the gap between heavy metal and hard-rock fans. You won’t be disappointed!”

All Hail The Yeti Premiere New Song “See You Never”

All Hail The Yeti have premiered a new song titled “See You Never.” This track is from the band’s new album “Highway Crosses,” which will be released on November 16.

Connor Garritty commented:

“The new track, ‘See You Never,’ was one of the first songs written for ‘Highway Crosses‘. The song was written about a person from my past that disrespected me, the band, my friends, our fans and my family. The lyrics say, ‘I am stronger than you, nothing left to prove’ instead of handling this person with violence or physical harm, I turned to bettering myself and fighting harder to be successful in my life.

Sometimes fighting physically is the natural reaction for being wronged. When you stand up for yourself with intellect instead of violence, it shows a far greater amount of self respect and I think in the end it feels like better revenge! Musically, this is the classic AHTY song. It has heavy verses, more hooks than a tackle box and a storming bridge/breakdown to finish it off! It has been crushing live on this current tour with Life Of Agony and I feel that this song will be a staple in our live set!”

In other news, the group have also announced that they will be playing a free record release show at The Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, CA on November 14.
