Yob new album 2018

YOB have announced a new album. On June 8, the group will release Our Raw Heart via Relapse. It’s their first for the long-running metal label (outside of the band’s reissue of The Great Cessation) and features seven tracks. The artwork and tracklist have not yet been revealed, but Mike Scheidt released a statement about the record, saying, “We gave it everything we have. Going from an uncertain future in the beginning of 2017, to writing and then recording a new album at the end of it, it was quite a year. We’re very grateful.”

The band is touring with Bell Witch later this year. Last year they released the outstanding Mirror Reaper. Take a look at those dates below.
