Yashira and Horsewhip release surprise split
Florida based bands Yashira and Horsewhip dropped a surprise split earlier this week on Zegema Beach Records. The release features a track from both bands. Both singles were recorded, mixed, and mastered at War House Recordings by John Howard. Album artwork is a painting from Brian Hillhouse and the layout was provided by Horsewhips' own Shaun Drees.
The track "Burial Mound" sees Yashira venture into waters unknown. This is the band's first offering utilizing Sampling or Synthesizers; played by Joe Suthers.
Yashira shared the following:
This one's been in the works for awhile and we're super excited to finally have it out. We admire Horsewhip in many ways, musically and as people. Since becoming friends through playing shows together around Florida, we've become close even outside of that so it was only fitting that we put this together. To have Zegema Beach along for the ride is just icing on the cake. We're eternally grateful for the opportunity to work with everyone involved in this.
Horsewhip also added:
This is Horsewhip's first recording and release in over 2 years after a lineup change that put 2 of us in charge of vocal duties and adding a second guitar.
We are beyond honored to split this vinyl with our brothers in Yashira. We all hit it off the first time we met and have been able to play some killer shows together as well as create some amazing memories. This split record is something we have discussed for years and has finally come to fruition thanks to Zegema Records.
