Yoke Lore has finally dropped his debut album, celebrating the release with a string of upcoming Australian shows for his Holy Havoc tour.
Yoke Lore has today (September 22) released his debut album Toward A Never Ending New Beginning. The 14-track project is said to chronicle the Los Angeles musician’s journey of self-discovery and coming-of-age, and draws from an array of sounds from indie-pop to folk.
Toward A Never Ending New Beginning was previewed by the singles Shake and Winona, which arrived in June and May, respectively. Today, Yoke Lore shared the final single off the album, a sanguine indie-pop staple titled Hallucinate.
The singles add to an already-stellar tracklist for the album, which marks Yoke Lore’s first full-length effort following the 2019 EP Meditations.
To celebrate the release, Yoke Lore has announced a string of Australian dates for his upcoming Holy Havoc tour, which is set to head Down Under early next month.
The singer will then perform a second Sydney date at The Lansdowne on October 6, before wrapping up the tour with two successive dates at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel (October 7) and Shotkickers (October 8).

Elsewhere, Yoke Lore sung praises for his “really loyal Australian fans” and said he is excited “to give them the real thing” on the Holy Havoc tour.
On what he hopes fans glean from Toward A Never Ending New Beginning, Yoke Lore said: “I want them to start having ideas about themselves that they wouldn’t have had before.”
