YOB readying new LP; announce North American tour w/ Bell Witch

Oregon-based stonery/doomy threesome YOB are gearing up for the release of their eighth studio full-length album, Our Raw Heart, on June 8th through their new home at Relapse Records.

“We’re very excited to share this new music,” proclaims singer/guitarist Mike Scheidt. “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.”

Regarding the upcoming trek (ft. support from Bell Witch), it kicks off in mid-June in Oklahoma City, OK, a few weeks after YOB‘s appearance at ‘Modified Ghost Festival’ in Canada. New York’s only stop on the run happens at Manhattan’s Le Poisson Rouge on June 28 [TIX]. The outing also hits ‘Austin Terror Fest’ and AR’s ‘Mutants of the Monster 2018.’
