Y&T: New Video Interview With DAVE MENIKETTI

Eddie Trunk, co-host of VH1 Classic‘s “That Metal Show”, conducted an interview YT guitarist/vocalist Dave Meniketti during the new metal cruise Monsters Of Rock – The Voyage, which set sail on February 25 and returned three days later via Ft. Lauderdale / Bahamas / Key West. You can now watch the chat below.

YT last year announced the addition of bassist Brad Lang to the group’s ranks.

The band’s current lineup is rounded out by guitarist John Nymann and longtime drummer Mike Vanderhule.

YT‘s first studio album in 13 years, “Facemelter”, was released in Europe on May 21, 2010 via Frontiers Records. As the title indicates, the CD is a hard-rockin’, song-oriented album that lives up to its name: it captures the band’s raw energy and tightness that they’ve become known for. Featuring heavy grooves, powerful guitars, and strong melodies, the band shows their versatility, delivering a range of high-energy rockers, mid-tempo head-bangers, modern rock grooves, majestic ballads, and signature YT rock anthems. To mark the return, the band engaged John Taylor Dismukes — the same artist who designed covers for YT‘s classic albums “Mean Streak”, “Black Tiger” and “In Rock We Trust” — to create the amazing art of the new “Facemelter”.
