YYNOT’s “Light and Shade” Now Shipping

YYNOT: Light and ShadeToday we’ve got some exciting news to share. The present-day prog-rock heroes in YYNOT have announced their new album Light and Shade is now shipping. The record marks the band’s third original studio effort.

Light and Shade has been in the works for over a year. As such it reflects aspects of the pandemic’s effect on the world, both bad and good.

“I’ve always loved juxtapositions, smooth with rough or bright with dark in terms of lyrics, sounds, tones, and textures,” guitarist Billy Alexander explains.

YYNOT also features Rocky Kuner on vocals, Mike Hetzel on drums, and the great Tim Starace on bass. Originally started through online Rush cover videos, the band has grown into their own sound while still having influences from the iconic trio. Their single “Burning Bridges” is a great example of that, with Starace dishing out a huge, snarling bass tone to anchor the riffs.

Light and Shade is shipping now directly from YYNOT’s website. The worldwide digital release will take place March 25th.
