Inspired by Walt Whitman’s promise to “Sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world,” Denver Colorado’s The Yawpers have set about bringing together disparate pieces of the American music lexicon and making it their own.
The sonic backbone to the Yawpers stripped down – yet brazen- sound are the overdriven acoustic guitars and trap kit. Equal parts frenetic, earnest, and menacing, it’s a combination that is uniquely and accurately Yawper…
The Yawpers formed in 2011 and quickly found themselves identified one of the must-see bands in the vibrant Denver scene . An early EP was followed by their 2012 LP “Capon Crusade” which earned the band high marks among music critics .
In its brief history the Yawpers have played over 400 shows and toured coast-to-coast sharing the stage with bands as varied as the Yawpers themselves including: the Reverend Horton Heat, Cracker, Delta Spirit, Black Angels, Blind Pilot, and have done full national tours with the Blasters and Nashville Pussy.
The Yawpers’ next LP American Man will be released in the Spring/Summer of 2015.
