Los Angeles, CA-based folk rock group YARD OF BLONDES recently announced the upcoming release of their new EP, Murderology, via High Desert Lo-Fi Records and MTV award-winning and Grammy-nominated art agency HK Corp. The EP drops on March 26, 2013. Today, the band is pleased to reveal the new album art for the EP, photographed by French photographer Yougo Jeberg. A new video was leaked last night unveiling the art, which can be viewed at this link. To view more of Yougo Jeberg’s photography, check out his website at www.yougojeberg.com.
The theme of Murderology is love and death; the EP is essentially a collection of meticulously crafted songs inspired by “murder ballads” of the 19th century. YARD OF BLONDES recorded the EP with Julian David at Firewater Studios (Korn, Spliknot, Unkle) with the full support of its owner, Billy Graziadei of Biohazard.
Murderology track listing:
3. Requiem For A lover
YARD OF BLONDES boasts influences beyond folk music by incorporating stoner rock, pop-rock and indie bits in their music, as well. The band is already well known on the west coast, having performed at more than 100 shows with other great bands such as Hermane Düne or Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age), and they have been growing as a full live band on the stages of L.A. clubs such as The Bootleg Theater, El Cid, The Viper Room, TAIX, Skinny’s Lounge, Hemingway, the Whisky A Go-Go and more.
In 2010, Vincent W. Jacob, a French songwriter and author met Fanny Hill, another French musician in Los Angeles. They were both looking for something new on the other side of the world. They started YARD OF BLONDES together and soon took the desert roads to confront themselves to their rock, folk and stoner influences. In addition to Vincent on vocals / guitars and Fanny on vocals / piano / organ, the two are joined by Dean Chamberlain on bass guitar, Will Schlich on guitars, and Ben Lecourt on drums.
YARD OF BLONDES are performing in the Los Angeles/Hollywood, CA area three times in the next month. See below for all confirmed dates:
