Biography

You.May.Die.In.The.Desert (YMDITD) is an accomplished instrumental trio from Seattle, WA comprised of Brandon Salter, Brian Woods, and Michael Clark. What originally began as a guitar/bass duo has morphed into a highly technical three-piece. This uplifting jazzy trio combines chaotic guitar riffs with atmospheric layover techniques to illuminate even the most adroit post-rock fan or musician. YMDITD has successfully toured the western US several times and completed a full headlining tour of Japan. YMDITD plans to extensively tour the United States this year, and make a trip to Europe by 2009, while continuing to write and record new material in anticipation of a full-length album.

YMDITD has been compared to bands such as: Explosions in the Sky, Don Caballero, Minus the Bear, Tristeza, Russian Circles, Mogwai, and Tortoise.

YMDITD has an extremely high-energy live show that is captivating and dynamic.
