In 2010, Y&T returned with their first studio album in 13 years, featuring original members Dave Meniketti and Phil Kennemore, along with longtime members John Nymann on guitar and Mike Vanderhule on drums, who were each hand-picked by Kennemore and Meniketti years earlier.
“Facemelter” a hard rockin', song-oriented album, met with major acclaim from critics and fans, capturing the band's raw energy and tightness for which they've become known. The title came from a show in the mid-'70s, when a rabid fan told the band, “You melted my face.” And as any Y&T fan will testify still today, Y&T's strong suit lies in their high-energy, power-packed rock 'n' roll set.
With Phil Kennemore's untimely passing from lung cancer in early 2011, the band carries on the legacy that is Y&T. With Brad Lang on bass and vocals, Y&T are now back with “Live at the Mystic”, a new double live CD recorded at the legendary Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, California, one of the most popular venues that Y&T play every year.
This 2-CD set includes 22 songs recorded over 2 nights in November of 2011, including many songs never before released on any other live Y&T CD. The amazing heat to the tracks showcases the power of the band as it currently sounds, playing songs from “Facemelter” as well as all the hits and fan favourites.
This album screams out to be a classic Y&T CD to have in your collection. Prepare to have your face melted!
