THE YEARNERS have come into being as a reincarnation - or a second coming - of their old band, HOT BREATH. HOT BREATH was formed in 2014 by Adam (drums), Molly (bass/vocals) & Alix (guitar/vocals) in Chicago, IL. They released a couple of EPs within about a year and a half & toured the around the Midwest. They added Gooey Fame on guitar and did a West Coast tour before disbanding in the fall of 2015 when Alix moved to Portland, OR. However, the urge to create music and play shows together was eternal, as the group continued talks of creating something together again. Adam, Molly, and Alix briefly reunited in Chicago in the summer of 2019, and the trio vowed to record a new EP together. They got together that fall and recorded the "2020 E.P." in Shelton, WA with Joey Seward at Left Field Studios. With THE YEARNERS, the group changes sound a bit as their older selves aim for more of a powerpop sound influenced by the likes of THE SHIVVERS & THE NERVES than the previous pop punk-y efforts. Despite now being split between Portland, St. Louis, and Chicago, the group has plans to create more and play shows in the future. Dirt Cult Recs.
