Telekinetic Yeti, the Iowa-based duo of Alex Baumann (guitar/vocals) and Rockwel Heim (drums) who recently announced the upcoming release of Primordial (July 8, Tee Pee Records), have added several dates around their anticipated May 15 Desertfest NYC performance.

We are more than thrilled to be included on such a heavy festival featuring some of our favorite bands,” said Baumann of the band’s upcoming performance at Desertfest NYC. “And although we are looking forward to playing shows again in general, we can’t wait to perform songs off of the new album in front of a live audience.”

The band previewed the 11-song album with the release of “Ancient Nug” and its accompanying video (

Primordial was produced by Phillip Cope (Kylesa, Baroness). Album pre-orders are available now (, with the collection available on several limited-edition colored vinyl variants, CD and digitally.

Telekinetic Yeti’s debut album, Abominable, was one of the year’s most talked about debuts, with The Obelisk dubbing it the “debut of the year,” and saying “it could have been another band’s second or third record for the level of cohesion on display.” Metal Injection noted their “explosive live show” as tours with Clutch, Red Fang and Weedeater followed. With Primordial, the band takes their game to a whole new level. The album explores themes as diverse as evolution, sorcery, black magic and the contradictions of the gloriously uplifting yet simultaneously melancholic human condition.
