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. Today the next chapter begins with the announcement of the new album, Heaven To A Tortured Mind, set for release April 3rd on WARP.

Alongside the forthcoming album and previously announced YVES TUMOR & ITS BAND headlining world tour, Yves Tumor shares new single “Gospel For A New Century” with an official video directed by Isamaya Ffrench. Isamaya said on working with Yves: “Nobody has ever inspired or moved me like Yves Tumor. It’s hard to do justice and communicate the devotional feeling of adoration and love I feel for him and what he represents as an artist. In short, he’s the shit and i’m so honoured to have made my directorial debut with him as my muse.” 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.
