They began performing their original music on the streets of Boulder night or day, rain or shine, in early 2015. Since then, The Beeves have been ruthlessly gigging, and gaining a strong following throughout the front range. On the heels of completing a successful southwestern tour in the summer of 2016, they hit the studio, and subsequently released their first official EP in November. Their goal, while retaining musical uniqueness and complexity, is pure musical fun for both band and audience alike. Successfully coupling this goal with the performance attitude of a wild animal and the stage presence of an untamed stallion, any person experiencing a Beeves show is bound to be left with their jaw dropped and a smile on their face.
In 2015, the group released their second EP, 'Into Frames' which was called "Colorado’s strongest psych-rock/mashup album of 2015." by Colorado Music Buzz. It debuted on over 50 different college radio stations across the US and Canada. Their hit song ‘Return’ was ranked #9 on the Troubadour’s Road top 25 songs of 2015 and the album has been licensed for use by MTV, E! channel, and the Discovery channel.
The band kicked off 2016 with high profile festival appearances in Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins, and has begun playing festivals in surrounding states. Released in October 2016, Augustus' 3rd album, 'The Mercury EP' marks a turning point for the band. Marquee Magazine said "It’s the perfect example of the group’s ability to take their multi-faceted sound and put forth something that no longer sounds like a blending of styles, but rather a succinct, continuous sound of their own." The album has again been licensed by major networks including AE, MTV, and the Discovery channel.
2017 saw the band morph into the 4 piece, full time touring, rock outfit that they were destined to be. They toured the Big Sky region, played SXSW in Austin, and capped off a 22 day, 19 city tour that brought them to major markets like Chicago, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Boston. The band is currently tracking their 4th album.
The Yawpers’ Third Album Boy In A Well Is A Sensational Tragedy Set In World War I France About A Mother Abandoning Her Unwanted Newborn Child. But, Like The Band Itself, There’s So Much More Roiling Beneath The Surface.
Recorded In Chicago By Alex Hall (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, The Cactus Blossoms, The Flat Five)** At Reliable Recordings And Produced (With Instrumental Contributions) By Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Bash & Pop), Boy In A Well Stretches The Yawpers’ Sound And Ambition In Challenging, Impassioned, And Dynamic Directions. To Follow Up Their 2015 Bloodshot Debut American Man* — Which Rolling Stone* Described As Mixing “High-Brow Smarts With Down-Home Stomp” — The Trio Left The Comfort Zone Of Their Denver Hometown In September 2016 To Record In A City They’d Only Briefly Visited Before.
The Story-Vision Was Initially Conjured By Lead Singer Nate Cook, After A Reckless Combination Of Alcohol, Half A Bottle Of Dramamine, And An Early Morning Flight. The Delusional Result Is An Album Of Complete Immersion And Instinct, With Personal Background (The Story Removes Shrapnel Embedded From Cook’s Failed Marriage) Meeting Psychological Fascinations (German Realpolitik, Freud, Oedipus, And The Lasting Social And Cultural Fallout Of WWI… You Know, The Usual Rock ’N’ Roll Stuff). Structured, Composed Songwriting From The Band’s Freakishly Tight Backbone — Guitar Prodigy Jesse Parmet And Bulldozing Drummer Noah Shomberg — Blend With The Impulsiveness Of Their Wild-Eyed, Punk-Reincarnation-Of-Elvis Frontman.
Boy In A Well Sounds Like Alan Lomax Using His Field Recorder To Capture Mance Lipscomb Ripping A Laced Joint (Or Something Much More Potent) With The Cramps And Strapping Their Instruments On To Let That Shit Fly. But While The Band Dials Into The Finest, Frenetic Trucker-Speed Induced Scuzz Blues, There Is Patience And Dark Soul Within And Between Songs Much Like The Blank Space Between Paragraphs And Chapters. Each Track Is A Division Of The Plot — Paired Visually With An Accompanying Comic Book, Illustrated By J.D. Wilkes Of The Legendary Shack Shakers — That Seamlessly Blends Into The Next.
Also Released In 2017 Was A 7" Single Featuring "Mon Dieu" From Boy In A Well And A New Recording Of A Yawpers Live Show Calling Card, Their Manic Cover Of Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades." The Band Has Previously Released Two Full Length-Albums (Their Bloodshot Debut American Man And The 2012 Self-Released Album Capon Crusade), A Self-Released EP (Savage Blue), And A Bootleg Covers Record (Good Songs/Shitty Versions). The Band's Music Has Been Praised By Publications Like Rolling Stone, The New York Times, The AV Club, Consequence Of Sound, Nerdist, And American Songwriter, And Has Taken The Stage With Lucero, Tommy Stinson's Bash & Pop, DeVotchka, Supersuckers, The Blasters, And More. In 2015, They Were The House Band At TEDx Kansas City And Soundtracked An Episode Of Bill Weir's The Wonder List On CNN — The Episode Was About The Colorado River.
The Yawpers Formed In 2011 When Parmet And Cook Played Together At The Only Speakeasy In Boulder, CO. They Added A Drummer To The Mix And A New Trio Was Born. The Band’s Name Is A Nod To Walt Whitman’s “Leaves Of Grass”: “I Sound My Barbaric Yawp Over The Roofs Of The World.”
