June 8, 2018 – With today’s release of Our Raw Heart via Relapse Records, Yob has released a full album visualizer (https://youtu.be/VunIoLslYrE) and will host a live stream of this evening’s Music Millennium in-store in partnership with Record Store Day (viewable at 6 pm pacific via facebook.com/recordstoreday).

“Largely penned from what he worried would be his deathbed,” said Rolling Stone in a recent interview with YOB singer/guitar player Mike Scheidt. “YOB’s eighth album, Our Raw Heart, is a riveting document of Scheidt’s year. A gauntlet of sickness and health, clarity and confusion, the record wrestles with mortality and ultimately perseveres.” Decibel Magazine, in their current cover story, said “one of the byproducts” of Scheidt’s illness “is a brilliant new album that takes the YOB blueprint of punishingly heavy, delightfully angular doom/sludge into unexplored areas of heart-breaking melody and triumphant resolve.” The album has won accolades from the Associated Press (“Yob… swing effortlessly between menacing distortion and hushed reverie”), NPR (“…the group’s sprawling gravity and thunderous majesty have taken an introspective turn…”), Pitchfork(“…metal that sounds sensuous, bellicose, and jubilant all at once”).

Mike Scheidt participates in a Reddit AMA (r/Metal) on Monday at 2 pm pacific. Yob’s North American tour begins two days laterJune 14, in Oklahoma City (dates below).
