Following his acclaimed collaboration with fellow industrial rabble rousers Youth Code, King Yosef has revealed a new single, titled “Barbed Teeth.” Directed by Yosef with Cameron Gené, the frenetic visuals drenched in orange and black present a vicious depiction of the song’s lyrics “based on the idea of inevitability of retaliation and perseverance,” the song showcasing the artist’s familiar blend of hardcore fury and industrialized sonic textures; stating the song to be one of many being worked on, Yosef adds, “I feel it best represents the path that I am starting to unveil. Its sound is old and new to me all at once. It is 100% DIY.”
The project of Portland-based musician/producer Tayves Yosef Pelletier, King Yosef has steadily risen in the ranks of the modern industrial underground; producing for and collaborating with a wide range of experimental rap artists like XXXTentacion, Ski Mask the Slump God, Youth Code, and Zheani. “Barbed Teeth” marks the artist’s first solo release of new material since 2020.
