Yawning Man Announce New Zealand Tour

C.C. / Thursday 15th August, 2019 12:44PM

Legendary US desert rockers Yawning Man are swooping into Aotearoa like a cosmic whirlwind this summer, to play a long-awaited three date tour in early 2020. Originating in La Quinta, California in 1986 yet releasing no studio recordings until 2005, the pioneering group's generator-powered marathon jam sessions in the desert are credited as laying the foundations for Kyuss and Queens Of The Stone Age, with Brant Bjork describing Yawning Man as "the sickest band of all time". The team of Mario Lalli and Gary Arce, with new drummer Bill Stinson, now have seven studio albums under their belt including 2019's Macedonian Lines – don't miss Yawning Man in action at the dates below...

Press release:

Desert Rock pioneers Yawning Man will finally make a soaring flight to our shores for a long-awaited tour of Australia and New Zealand in January 2020.

Forming in 1986, Yawning Man have released 7 studio albums and 5 split LPs/EPs.

The latest releases, The Revolt Against Tired Noises & Macedonian Lines, won over critics from the desert plains to across the oceans. This is not just due to the fact that Brant Bjork once said that Yawning Man is the sickest band of all time, or They're the greatest band I've ever seen. Without the band and their commitment to the initiation of the first ever Generator Parties back in the 80s and 90s, Kyuss, QOTSA, Somali Yacht Club and Garcia’s many projects (including Sloburn and Unida) would not exist without this revolutionary band.

The trio, featuring Mario Lalli (Bass), Gary Arce (Guitar/Vocals) and now Bill Stinson (Drums), have crafted one of the most unique blends of Psychedelic, Post and Desert Rock, which can only be described in human language as YAWNING MAN.

The sound of Yawning Man stems from the Earth’s soul. While Gaia sends out signals to our spiritual ancestors and elders, the sound of the instruments gradually gather all of us in the moment, and the hypnotic mantras naturally enable the spread of love with the instruments of life we have.
