The wait for new music from All Hail The Yeti is over…sort of
The band premiered the video for its latest single, ‘Bury Your Memory’ Friday. The song is the band’s first new music in more than two years. The band’s most recent new single was its 2019 anti-bullying song, ‘Felo De Se.’
Along with being the band’s first new music in more than two years, ‘Bury Your Memory’ is also the lead single from All Hail The Yeti’s forthcoming EP, Within The Hollow Earth, which is scheduled for release Nov. 12 through Minus Head Records. The label has released each of the band’s existing records, too.
Front man Connor Garritty talked about the new single and EP in a prepared statement.
“‘Bury Your Memory’ was one of the first songs that we completed for this EP and I immediately knew that it would be the first single,” said Garritty. “It feels very much like a traditional AHTY song, reminiscent of our self-titled record.”
“Within The Hollow Earth has been hiding in the shadows for almost two years, and now it is peeking through the darkness to shed light on a dim music scene,” he added. “We cannot wait to unleash this on the world. The past couple years have been difficult for all of us and the excitement of releasing this has been taken away more times than I can remember. Within The Hollow Earth will offer blue skies for this bleak world. We are very proud of the work and feel very confident that it paints a perfectly beautiful picture of how horrific life can be.”
The video for ‘Bury Your Memory’ is a unique presentation. It features the band in what looks like a flower nursery of sorts, blue skies overhead, colors all around, as the band performs its heavy, intense song. The contrast of that heaviness and the beauty surrounding the band is likely meant to help translate the message in the song’s lyrical content.
According to Garrity, the treatment for the video was his own. It was brought to life by director Brian Cox.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release announcing the song’s premiere. Even in listening to the content, it leaves itself up to interpretation. That in itself is certain to further engage and entertain audiences.
The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single is a departure of sorts for the band. Instead of the dark, heavy approach taken to much of the band’s work, this song presents an arrangement that blends elements of stoner and doom rock to make this aspect interesting in itself.
In other news, All Hail The Yeti is scheduled to join Jinjer and Suicide Silence on the road later this month. Garritty talked with Phil’s Picks about the tour and more during a recent interview that can be read here.
