The Yawpers hale from just down the road in Boulder and just in case you’re curious about their name, it stems from Walt Whitman’s promise to “sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world”.
Band members, Nate Cook, Jesse Parmet, James Hale and Dave Romano deliver that barbaric yawp of alt country/rock at a powerfully loud volume that you just can’t help but move to. It’s dynamic, it’s raw and it’s outright fun. Their pulsating, guitar-driven sound draws influence from Elvis and Dylan, as well as the more recent Deer Tick and Wilco.
The band has just completed their debut full-length album, “Capon Crusade”, which was released on October 16th.
