The Beeves are a Rock N’ Roll variety band based outside of Boulder, on the vast plains of Erie, Colorado. Hailing from a small town of sticks and Burger Kings, they are creating a Rock N’ Roll revolution with their heavy melodic songs. Although two members have recently graduated from high school and one is in his senior year, Ian Ehrhart, Matthew Sease, and Will Ehrhart as The Beeves are not to be underestimated. This power trio transcends their young years with provocative and insightful songs that will move you and make you want to move.
They began performing their original music on the streets of Boulder night or day, rain or shine, in early 2015. Since then, The Beeves have been ruthlessly gigging, and gaining a strong following throughout the front range. On the heels of completing a successful southwestern tour in the summer of 2016, they hit the studio, and subsequently released their first official EP in November. Their goal, while retaining musical uniqueness and complexity, is pure musical fun for both band and audience alike. Successfully coupling this goal with the performance attitude of a wild animal and the stage presence of an untamed stallion, any person experiencing a Beeves show is bound to be left with their jaw dropped and a smile on their face.
"Many may try to harken back to the heyday of rock and roll, but few pull it off as authentically as Augustus. " - Sun News, 9/17. From their humble acoustic beginnings in 2014, to their current status as a full time touring indie rock band, the 4pc Boulder based Augustus continues to push the boundaries while delivering honest, original songs.
Since turning heads at SXSW 2017, the band has crisscrossed the country multiple times playing both coasts and Canada. The genre-bending indie rockers have released a steady stream of critically acclaimed music, licensed songs to MTV, E!, and the Discovery Channel, and dropped their much anticipated 4th studio record ‘Idle’ Fall 2018.
Their last time through Seattle, Northwest Music Scene said “Their sound has evolved with new sophisticated arrangements and unpredictable power since their start in 2014.” - 7/18. And Cosmic Clash called their latest single “mesmerizing.” 10/18
The band kicked off 2019 with a West Coast tour, a new live single, and a sold out performance in Denver supporting Futurebirds. With more national tours scheduled for the year and new music to be released, Augustus shows no signs of slowing down.
Nate Cook (of The Yawpers)
The Yawpers Craft Tunes That Are Engrossed In Creative Context. Some Might Recall Edges Of The Mid-1900s Delta Blues, But Only If Those Lived-In Riffs Were Played By The MC5, Broadcast Through Booming Stadium Speakers And Drenched With Pounds Of Fuzzy Distortion And Full-Throttled Punk Rock Energy. They Conduct Parallel Frequencies With The Ferocious And Raw Proletarian Roots Of Uncle Tupelo, The Burning-Hot Thrashings And Cavernous Sonic Space Of Hot Snakes, And Mix In Derisive Scrutiny That Brings To Mind Ween Or The Minutemen (And Might We Add That Cook Is The Spitting Image Of D. Boon).
The Yawpers’ Third Album Boy In A Well Is A Sensational Tragedy Set In World War I France About A Mother Abandoning Her Unwanted Newborn Child. But, Like The Band Itself, There’s So Much More Roiling Beneath The Surface.
Recorded In Chicago By Alex Hall (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, The Cactus Blossoms, The Flat Five)** At Reliable Recordings And Produced (With Instrumental Contributions) By Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Bash & Pop), Boy In A Well Stretches The Yawpers’ Sound And Ambition In Challenging, Impassioned, And Dynamic Directions. To Follow Up Their 2015 Bloodshot Debut American Man* — Which Rolling Stone* Described As Mixing “High-Brow Smarts With Down-Home Stomp” — The Trio Left The Comfort Zone Of Their Denver Hometown In September 2016 To Record In A City They’d Only Briefly Visited Before.
The Story-Vision Was Initially Conjured By Lead Singer Nate Cook, After A Reckless Combination Of Alcohol, Half A Bottle Of Dramamine, And An Early Morning Flight. The Delusional Result Is An Album Of Complete Immersion And Instinct, With Personal Background (The Story Removes Shrapnel Embedded From Cook’s Failed Marriage) Meeting Psychological Fascinations (German Realpolitik, Freud, Oedipus, And The Lasting Social And Cultural Fallout Of WWI… You Know, The Usual Rock ’N’ Roll Stuff). Structured, Composed Songwriting From The Band’s Freakishly Tight Backbone — Guitar Prodigy Jesse Parmet And Bulldozing Drummer Noah Shomberg — Blend With The Impulsiveness Of Their Wild-Eyed, Punk-Reincarnation-Of-Elvis Frontman.
Boy In A Well Sounds Like Alan Lomax Using His Field Recorder To Capture Mance Lipscomb Ripping A Laced Joint (Or Something Much More Potent) With The Cramps And Strapping Their Instruments On To Let That Shit Fly. But While The Band Dials Into The Finest, Frenetic Trucker-Speed Induced Scuzz Blues, There Is Patience And Dark Soul Within And Between Songs Much Like The Blank Space Between Paragraphs And Chapters. Each Track Is A Division Of The Plot — Paired Visually With An Accompanying Comic Book, Illustrated By J.D. Wilkes Of The Legendary Shack Shakers — That Seamlessly Blends Into The Next.
Also Released In 2017 Was A 7" Single Featuring "Mon Dieu" From Boy In A Well And A New Recording Of A Yawpers Live Show Calling Card, Their Manic Cover Of Motörhead's "Ace Of Spades." The Band Has Previously Released Two Full Length-Albums (Their Bloodshot Debut American Man And The 2012 Self-Released Album Capon Crusade), A Self-Released EP (Savage Blue), And A Bootleg Covers Record (Good Songs/Shitty Versions). The Band's Music Has Been Praised By Publications Like Rolling Stone, The New York Times, The AV Club, Consequence Of Sound, Nerdist, And American Songwriter, And Has Taken The Stage With Lucero, Tommy Stinson's Bash & Pop, DeVotchka, Supersuckers, The Blasters, And More. In 2015, They Were The House Band At TEDx Kansas City And Soundtracked An Episode Of Bill Weir's The Wonder List On CNN — The Episode Was About The Colorado River.
The Yawpers Formed In 2011 When Parmet And Cook Played Together At The Only Speakeasy In Boulder, CO. They Added A Drummer To The Mix And A New Trio Was Born. The Band’s Name Is A Nod To Walt Whitman’s “Leaves Of Grass”: “I Sound My Barbaric Yawp Over The Roofs Of The World.”
Meeting House looks young to the eye, but within their sound lies a familiarity and rawness that hasn't been heard in the Denver circuit for quite sometime.
