Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway, Owner/Chief Editor

The ongoing acceleration of events in the world of all-things-YATRA finds the trio announcing a short run of U.S. tour dates for March.

The trek will be in support of the band’s recent full-length introduction, the Grimoire Records release, ‘Death Ritual‘, reviewed [HERE] at Riff Relevant. It will also be the first YATRA live trek for the band’s new drummer, Sean Lafferty, with the band (guitarist / vocalist Dana Helmuth and bassist Maria Geisbert) commenting:

We are super stoked to take our new album out on the road, and bring the intensity of our live show to the songs on the album.”

Along the way during next month’s stage excursions, YATRA will conduct performances on back-to-back days in Austin, Texas at events surrounding this year’s SXSW (South By Southwest) convention and music festival. Post tour, YATRA will be playing Grim Reefer Fest in Baltimore on 4/20. Find all of the band’s upcoming March tour dates listed below.

Death Ritual‘ is available to purchase at YATRA‘s Bandcamp [link] or via Grimoire Records [link].
