YVES TUMOR

HEAVEN TO A TORTURED MIND’ OUT APRIL 3RD

Yves Tumor has returned with another tease of their highly anticipated album, Heaven To A Tortured Mind (out April 3rd via WARP), dropping a new suite "Romanticist/Dream Palette.” Though the song occupies two tracks on the album, the single is intended to be absorbed as one piece of music, a sonic feat that blurs the edges of psych-rock and modern pop. The suite teems with hooks, bolstered by guest vocals by Kesley Lu within “Romanticist” and Julia Cumming within “Dream Palette.” 

Few projects at the forefront of contemporary art truly push visceral sonic boundaries in the way that Yves Tumor does.  With an arc that impartially sits between psych-rock and modern pop, comparisons only serve as limitations intended to define that which cannot be. Yves Tumor melds restraint and chaos; diluting reality by giving meaning to the abstract and allowing for dissonance to be seen and heard as harmony. 

The forthcoming album is co-produced by Justin Raisen (Sky Ferreira, Ariel Pink, Charli XCX). Yves Tumor shares new single "Gospel For A New Century" with an official video directed by Isamaya Ffrench. Thunderous horns and discordant beats give Yves Tumor a cacophonous runway to the unexpected anthem the title itself affirms. The video further seeps into the Yves Tumor psyche, with a Fellini-esq androgynous underworld as the setting for a mephistophelian sermon atop a crumbling throne, backed by platform-hooved dancers and of course the cheeky requisite laser light show. 

Heaven To A Tortured Mind marks the fourth official full-length release from Yves Tumor and the follow-up to 2018's critically acclaimed and era-defining WARP release, Safe In The Hands Of Love. Breakout singles "Noid", "Licking An Orchid" and "Lifetime" shifted critical perception into media such as the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, the FADER, NPR and more awarding the album as one of the best releases of the year. Yves Tumor captivated audiences around the world with an incendiary live show that landed slots at premiere US festivals, most notably Coachella, Primavera and Pitchfork Midwinter Festival in 2019.
