‘Low Pressure Valley’ by Yawning Balch | New Album, ‘Volume One’

Exclusive track premiere of ‘Low Pressure Valley’ by Yawning Balch, taken from the upcoming album, ‘Volume One,’ out July 7th via Heavy Psych Sounds.

Yawning Balch is the amalgam of guitarist Bob Balch (Fu Manchu, Big Scenic Nowhere, ex-Minotaur, Slower, and so on), and the current incarnation of Gary Arce-led desert rock progenitors Yawning Man, which includes Arce on guitar alongside drummer Bill Stinson and bassist Billy Cordell. Their debut record ‘Volume One’ is part of a two-volume set carved out of a single five-hour jam between Balch and the trio. Be ready to embrace a dreamy and psychedelic instrumental journey as you’ve rarely experienced!

About this new project, guitarist Bob Balch comments: “In November of 2022 I went out to Joshua Tree for a day of jamming with the guys in Yawning Man with the intention of calling it “Yawning Balch.” No riffs were planned. We just plugged in and played. The only discussion beforehand was that Gary Arce and I wanted to mess with tons of guitar pedals. I knew that while we were jamming it sounded great, but it wasn’t until I got home and listened to it all that I realized we had something special. It’s hard to believe that we jammed for five hours and got two full-length LPs and then some out of it. Every player killed it on these recordings and I’m beyond grateful to have my name involved with this legendary band. Fingers crossed they invite me back out annually for more jam sessions. I hope you enjoy these jams and please use them responsibly.”

‘Volume One’ was recorded at Gatos Trail and engineered by Dan Joeright, mixed and mastered by Kent Stump at Crystal Clear Sound. Artwork and layout by John McGill. The album will be available in ultra-limited orange splatter vinyl, limited sea blue vinyl, black vinyl, CD digipak and digital on July 7th, 2023, with pre-order available now from Heavy Psych Sounds.
