Sept. 6, 2018 – Oregon – Yob, who recently released their critically-acclaimed album, ‘Our Raw Heart,’ share a live video for Original Face (https://youtu.be/2hUM3gEg2Uk).

The clip, which was directed by Frank Huang and filmed at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge, arrives as the band kicks of a short Western U.S. tour tonight in Sacramento. The eight-date trek includes stops in Oakland, San Diego, Phoenix and more.

Alibi magazine

Yob is featured on the current cover of Albuquerque’s weekly Alibi. The band plays Albuquerque on Wednesday.

“YOB’s eighth album, ‘Our Raw Heart,’ is a riveting document of Scheidt’s year,” said Rolling Stone in an online feature. “A gauntlet of sickness and health, clarity and confusion, the record wrestles with mortality and ultimately perseveres.” Decibel Magazine, in their July 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…”), and Pitchfork (“…metal that sounds sensuous, bellicose, and jubilant all at once”).
