Listen to a new YOB track + win tix to their NYC show

YOB by Jimmy Hubbard

Oregon Stoner / doom metal threesome YOB recently unleashed the beefy 14-plus minute title-track to their new album Our Raw Heart, which is due to drop on June 8th via Relapse Records, who published the following description:

From tragedy to triumph, YOB’s incredible 8th full-length recording was conceived amidst dire circumstances that nearly left frontman Mike Scheidt dead. Suffering from an extremely painful and potentially fatal intestinal disease, Scheidt miraculously recovered and reinvigorated the Oregon trio with a new sense of purpose for Our Raw Heart, an album informed by the will to survive. More exposed than ever both physically and emotionally, YOB bleed out seven riveting tracks of enormous volume and pensive, transcendental beauty across 75 minutes of ultimate doom. A brilliant musical progression in the YOB continuum, Our Raw Heart is the band at their most aggressive, impassioned and eclectic. The riffs are massive, the vocals captivating and the songwriting sublime. Existing in its own organic universe, Our Raw Heart is truly the band’s finest work to date and the apex achievement of what heavy music can accomplish.

Listen to the new song below.

To coincide with the release of the fresh tune, YOB have announced fall west coast dates with Acid King and CHRCH in tow.
