Yves Tumor has announced their most accomplished and anticipated album to date, Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds).
The album achieves new artistic heights for the project via a visionary arc that graces rock, psychedelia, and electronica in an uncanny recalibration and re-invention of pop music, ambitiously shifting and altering the boundaries of contemporary art and culture. This is Yves Tumor’s most intimate and personal statement to date, guiding the listener through a conceptually manifold spiritual journey – circuitously weaving darkness to light, pop to innovation, cacophony to church-like calm.
Praise A Lord Who Chews But Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds) is produced by Noah Goldstein (Frank Ocean, Rosalía, Drake, Rihanna, Bon Iver), and mixed by Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails), lending the album with a sonic signature that acts as a distillation and amplification of Yves’ previous work. The album’s boundlessly visceral aesthetic is bolstered by invaluable contributions from long-time collaborators Chris Greatti (Yungblud, WILLOW), Yves Rothman (Girlpool, Amaarae) and Rhys Hastings, melding restraint and chaos in a soulful clarity. Throughout Yves manifests their vision of diluting reality by giving meaning to the abstract and allowing for dissonance to be seen and heard as harmony.
The release marks the formal follow up 2021’s acclaimed The Asymptotical World EP and the preceding full length 2020 album Heaven To A Tortured Mind, both of which yielded a cavalcade of critical praise. Yves Tumor embodies and controls the unique and influential power to redefine pop music as we know it, with much more to come.
Release: March 17th, 2023, WARP Records/Inertia
