YOB Debuts Title Track From Our Raw Heart

Oregon-based doom metal outfit, YOB, today have revealed the title track to their forthcoming album, Our Raw Heart. The album is scheduled for release on June 8th. Originally debuting on Noisey, you can check out the track here on Yell! Magazine.

Last year, vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt battled acute diverticulitis, which, in one way or another, found its way onto the new album. Scheidt commented:

The album title hit me early that year, so I knew the lyrics would be informed by it… So many people came to my aid while I was recovering, it almost seems trite to say it was humbling, but I felt this heightened state of support and connection to people around the world who gave to me in many different ways so I could keep my head above water—whether it was encouragement, financial support, or spiritual support.

The 14-plus minute song arrives as the band adds a Western U.S. tour to their previously announced touring plans with all dates on-sale now. See the list of dates below.


Our Raw Heart pre-orders are available here, with various physical bundles including merchandise, vinyl, cassette and CDs. Both “Our Raw Heart” and “The Screen” are available as instant downloads with album pre-orders.
