Yawning Man

Yawning Man is beyond excited to be touring the United States and Canada, for the very first time! If you don't already live on the West Coast or up North/Canada, then this will be a 'destination' tour for you all, our friends. So you'll want to get some of your buddies together, pack yourselves in a van (or whatever roadworthy ride you have) and make a road trip for these shows. We will be touring with Truckfighters. We can't wait to see you!!!
We love you all.

THANK YOU to everyone who so very generously donated to our IndieGoGo Fundraiser! It was a big success.

We are so very pleased, and ineffably grateful to have exceeded our goal! We will be donating 10% of the overage to our charity (Alliance For Animals), and even after the IndieGoGo fees and other various costs, we definitely have the funds required to do a quality recording of the long awaited, FULL LENGTH YAWNING MAN album, thanks to the generosity of you all! Gary has already begun writing the songs and soon, it's into the studio for the engineering/recording at Thunder Underground Studios.

We would like to extend big, HUGE thanks to all of you, whether you donated to our campaign or not. Without you, we couldn't do what we do. We do not consider you 'just' our fans; to us, you are our friends and our family. Cheers!

As of Springtime 2013, Yawning Man is very honored to announce Ayers Guitar Co.'s OFFICIAL endorsement of Gary Arce! David Ayers (Owner and luthier of Ayers Guitar Co.) queried Gary extensively as to his preferences regarding particular tones and nuances, etc. and, with Gary's specs, thus was created a unique, one-of-a-kind guitar made to honor and perpetuate that signature sound that nobody but Gary can create. Only someone as skilled as David Ayers can pre-articulate such a sound with the literal creation of 'just' the right instrument. David himself hand-delivered the custom made guitar to Gary, just before he departed with Mario and Alfredo onto Europe, and he played the hell out of his beautiful, green abalone laden guitar for the whole tour.
