Yob released Clearing The Path To Ascend in 2014 but unfortunately hit a very serious snag in early 2017 when vocalist and guitarist Mike Scheidt nearly died from a bout of diverticulitis. He's been doing much better recently, and even working on new music! Specifically, he's been working on a new Yob album with the band called Our Raw Heart which is due out on June 8 via Relapse Records. The album was co-produced by the band and Billy Barnett at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, OR, with mastering handled by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive).
Here's what Scheidt had to say about the album.
"We're very excited to share this new music. 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. We're looking forward to hitting the road again and celebrating decibels and good cheer with friends worldwide. Can't wait."
