Raised in Knoxville, Tennessee, experimental rockstar and producer Yves Tumor began releasing music under the moniker in 2015 with an EP for Berlin’s experimental club label Janus followed by an EP for Mykki Blanco’s record label Dogwood. In 2015, Tumor debuted with "When Man Fails You" featuring the ambient classic "Limerence." Released the following year, Tumor’s second studio album "Serpent Music" displays a soul influenced hypnotic-noise masterpiece that laid the foundation for Tumor’s otherworldly innovation.
Tumor has since released three albums, all receiving mass critical acclaim, including Pitchfork's Best New Album. Tumor’s 2018 record, "Safe in The Hands of Love," explores intense feelings of love and torture both lyrically and sonically, winning the Libera Awards' Best Dance/Electronic Record in 2019. "Heaven to a Tortured Mind" (2020) garnered Tumor a dedicated fanbase enthralled by Tumor’s eclectic rock sound and glam.
This past March, Tumor released their fifth studio album, "Praise a Lord Who Chews but Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)." Tumor exhibits a blend of eccentricity and high-level production, defining what it means to be a rockstar in 2023. With the help of producer Noah Goldstein (Frank Ocean, Drake, Rihanna) and sound engineer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails), Tumor establishes themself as one of the most novel minds in music today. Tumor’s ability to consistently create critically acclaimed yet deeply unconventional records bleeds into their theatrical visuals and celestial live performances. Yves Tumor is an artist in every sense of the word.
