Yautja returns with new album “The Lurch”

Yautja is a kind of a metal/noise-rock band from Nashville. D.U. had the pleasure of seeing the three-piece perform in Washington, D.C. a few years ago, and took notice when a new album, The Lurch, was announced.

The band takes different influences, that underground doom and metal fans will be at least somewhat familiar with, and puts it all together. There’s downtuned guitars, yelled vocals, busy rhythmic textures, slow atonal parts, and speedy blast beats.

The Lurch is coming out on Relapse Records on May 21, 2021, and is up for preorder on CD and LP and on digital. And there’s a new music video for the track “The Spectacle” too. Check it out:
