YEIBICHAI (pronounced yay-beh-chay) is a progressive rock band that formed in California and released it's self-titled debut in December of 2010. The term Yeibichai was first encountered by founding guitarist Jimmy Tomahawk who regularly visits the befriended Navajo peoples on their homelands. To them, the "Yeibichai" are beings who come to man from the 'other world' to remind him how to live in balance with the natural elements of this realm. With influences drawn from many cultures merged with heavy-progressive rock, esoteric thinking, and psychedelic expressionism, YEIBICHAI is a unique musical entity with a compelling undertone that explores the beauty and absurdity of life in the new millennium. With Grammy winning engineer Mark Vinten at the helm, YEIBICHAI entered a Northern California studio in late 2010 to begin tracking their full length debut album. Throughout the following 3 months the debut was recorded, mixed in Los Angeles and mastered in San Francisco. With song subject matter ranging from the primal abstracts of survivalism to the nature and enigma of consciousness itself and meditations upon the forgotten powers of individualism to the irreverent depletion of balance and cohesion with the natural world by modern man. The music found on this album conveys a reconsideration of the beauty and absurdities that are the human experience. Just as their namesakes do, Yeibichai seek to peel back the thin facade between preconceptions of what is thought to be possible and what is derided as mere phantasm.
