The supernatural stew of sludge and superstition known as ALL HAIL THE YETI has revealed a video for the single “Bury Your Memory” from the long-awaited EP, Within the Hollow Earth, scheduled for release November 12 via Minus Head Records.
A haunting tale of loss, “Bury Your Memory” harkens back to the fan favorite “After the Great Fire” from 2012’s self-titled debut with its yearning for redemption and strength. “‘Bury Your Memory’ was one of the first songs that we completed for this EP and I immediately knew that it would be the first single,” vocalist Connor Garritty says. “It feels very much like a traditional AHTY song, reminiscent of our self-titled record.”
“Shooting with Brian Cox is always a pleasure,” says Garritty. “He took my idea for a visual concept and ran with it. It’s like nothing that any metal band is doing right now.”
Within the Hollow Earth was recorded with veteran hardcore-punk producer Steve Evetts, known for the visceral and vibrant performances he wrenches out of heavy bands, such as Suicide Silence, DevilDriver, Incite, Every Time I Die and The Dillinger Escape Plan. The resulting near-album length EP is a meditative trip to the brain, every bit as much as the subterranean saga evoked by its title.
“Within the Hollow Earth has been hiding in the shadows for almost two years, and now it is peeking through the darkness to shed light on a dim music scene,” says Garritty. “We cannot wait to unleash this on the world. The past couple years have been difficult for all of us and the excitement of releasing this has been taken away more times than I can remember. Within the Hollow Earth will offer blue skies for this bleak world. We are very proud of the work and feel very confident that it paints a perfectly beautiful picture of how horrific life can be.”
