Watch Mastodon, Old Man Gloom, Etc. Members Cover Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill”

“Two Minutes To Late Night” have shared a video of their host Jordan “Gwarsenio Hall” Olds covering Kate Bush‘s “Running Up That Hill“ with Emma Ruth Rundle, Bill Kelliher (Mastodon), Aaron Rieseberg (YOB), and Santos Montano (Old Man Gloom). You can check that out below:

Olds commented:

“Hello friends, we decided to release this video on schedule even though our country is in turmoil because we wanted to honor the hard work of our guest musicians and to give our fans a respite from the horrors of the fascist police state. In lieu of donating to our Patreon, we ask you to consider making a donation to the protestor bail funds for your local city (we’ve listed some of the major ones below). Please take a moment to acknowledge our many friends who cannot enjoy any kind of video right now. Black Lives Matter. Rest in power George Floyd and the many other victims of systemic oppression.

This is our eighth bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon. If you’d like to see more videos or learn more about Two Minutes to Late Night go to www.honorablesword.com

YOB Cancel July Dates

YOB have cancelled their rescheduled July dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this, there is some good news as the band have also confirmed that new music is in the works.

YOB commented:

“Hello Friends,

We have been playing close attention to the worldwide conversation around touring and safety. It is clear that we must cancel our headlining shows for July. While this may not come as a surprise, it is a bummer. We feel for and are with everyone whose life and livelihood is turned upside down.

We have been and will continue to be taking this time to work on new music, and taking good care in general so that when we all rejoin each other for concerts and gatherings, we’ll be in top form and ready to celebrate with you. Until then, we’ll be working on ways to stay connected with everyone, and be a part of a positive mindset.

Take excellent care and stay safe. We’re sending our very best to you and yours.

Love, Mike, Aaron and Travis.

YOB Postpone March Shows, Announce Rescheduled Dates

YOB have postponed their March shows due to the coronavirus pandemic. Most of the dates will now take place in July.

YOB commented:

“It is with a heavy heart and concern for friends, family and everyone we get to work with, that we have decided to reschedule our upcoming March US shows for July except for Treefort Music Fest which has rescheduled for September 23 – 27, and Salt Lake City which we will reschedule for a September date we hope to announce soon. We are really disappointed. The growing health concerns, restrictions on events, and a want to keep everyone safe have been the deciding factors. We’re erring on the side of caution.

All tickets bought for March will be honored but unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts Human Impact will not be able to join us on the rescheduled shows. As of now our May European shows will proceed as planned. Everyone stay healthy & safe. 🙏💛🙏

YOB, Oathbreaker, Etc. Members Join Forces In Living Gate

Aaron Rieseberg (YOB), Lennart Bossu (Oathbreaker, etc.), Wim Sreppoc (Oathbreaker, etc.), and Levy Seynaeve (Wiegedood, etc.) have launched a new project called Living Gate. The group’s debut EP “Deathlust” will be released in May and a video for the first single “Living Gate” can be found below:

The band commented:

“While touring together, various members of Yob, Wiegedood, Oathbreaker and Amenra found themselves bonding over a common love of death metal bands both classic (morbid angel, suffocation, Death) and contemporary (Tomb Mold, Blood Incantation).

It is in recognition of these shared admirations as well as a mutual respect of each other’s musical chops that LIVING GATE has been founded. Purposefully devoid of over-polished, meticulously edited sounds, Living Gate puts its emphasis upon unrelenting, raw drums which are continuously blanketed by a vomit of menacing riffs and heaving guttural orations.

Make ready your earholes for the debut EP, ‘DeathLust’ out May 2020.”
