If you are one of the many music enthusiasts looking forward to a huge wave of politically-charged, post-election punk, hardcore and metal, ALL HAIL THE YETI just met your needs. The band leads the charge with their official call for change with the new track “Feed The Pigs” – a self-described “wake up call” for our generation to take action in society. Along with the track, the band reveals a new music video, exclusively via Huffington Post. Check out the video and read a brief Q&A with vocalist Connor Garritty here.
“Writing “Feed The Pigs” came very naturally for us; one of the least stressful, yet one of the most important songs we have ever written,” Garritty details to Huffington Post. “We have always been very conscious of the world around us, especially the environment. With everything that is going on around us right now, I felt that this song needed to be heard… so inspiration wouldn’t be the word – it is more of a wake-up call! Our society needs to clue in to what is going on! Change has to start right now!”
Although originally hailing from Canada, the members of ALL HAIL THE YETI have resided in the Los Angeles, CA metropolitan area for several years. Garritty, a business owner in the state of California (Timeless Tattoo), personally feels the sting hitting small mom and pop shops everywhere.
Garritty continues to explain to Huffington Post, “Mom and pop businesses were once a thriving thing here and made this country what it is today. It is unfortunate that it became too expensive to keep things in America and I hope that changes soon. I always support a local business before some big chain or foreign company! If everyone in this country did the same it would make a big difference for people like me. I hope that Americans start to see the reality of this as well, Big corporations like Walmart and Target etc., don’t care about the people, they only care about big profit and to me that is a problem.”
As proven by “Feed The Pigs”, ALL HAIL THE YETI are constantly writing and creating new material. Stay tuned for more coming from the band soon.
“Feed The Pigs” is a standalone single; however, the band released a full length album, Screams From A Black Wilderness, earlier this year. Screams From A Black Wilderness is available to order via Bandcamp, Amazon, or iTunes, and is based on classic campfire-circle style horror stories, presenting a different story with each track. The album was honored with the Independent Music Award for “Metal/Hardcore Album Of The Year” this year.
