Desertscene in association with Sound of Liberation are proud to announce the desert rock innovators, Yawning Man, will be coming to The Black Heart, London on 29th July 2018.

Born among the sand dunes of La Quinta, California in 1986, Yawning Man struck up the perfect sound for their surroundings; raw, flowing and psyched-out. Often playing generator parties deep in the desert, their open air jams made a huge impact on many who went on to lead the stoner rock scene. Brant Bjork, for one, has proudly stated Yawning Man are the greatest band he's ever seen. 

As if it wasn't impressive enough that they inspired many of the founding fathers of the stoner rock scene, they managed to gain their reverence without a single release for almost twenty years. The band's first official releases - the Pot Head EP and Rock Formations - dropped in 2005, confirming to the wider scene what they'd already been told; Yawning Man jam hard. Adding to that catalogue with 2016's fantastic Historical Graffiti, they continue to be one of the most exciting bands in the underground thirty years in.
