Good morning folks. Yob is going on a North American tour opening up for Enslaved this year starting in March. Won't be coming anywhere near Texas I am dissapointed to say but if you are into Yob, or Enslaved and live in California or the Northern states or parts of canada or the east coast you may want to check it out.

They also added quite a few headlining dates interspersed in there as well. Definitely hitting up the Atlanta show. There's a New Orleans one too, not sure where in Texas you are.

For the lazy:

UPDATE, 4:08pm EST: As many folks have pointed out, Enslaved are, in fact, headlining this run through the 3/24 date, not Yob: it appears as if Yob (or someone who works for them) simply made another version of the tour poster with their logo much bigger than those of the other bands’, which is ordinarily contractually forbidden for exactly this reason. Nevertheless, this lineup still kicks ass, and Yob will continue to tour (and headline) starting on 3/26 with Witch Mountain.

Original Post:
It sure has been a big few years for Yob, hasn’t it? Seems like every time I hear the band’s name they’re on to bigger and better things. Their first big break came with that opening slot for Tool, and while they were known in certain metal circles well before that, the tour undoubtedly boosted their profile. From there it’s been a consistent string of wins, from successful tour to successful tour, culminating in their highly acclaimed 2014 release Clearing the Path to Ascend. (our review here)

Now Yob have announced another headlining tour, with black metal wizards Enslaved and trancy drone outfit Ecstatic Vision (ex-A Life Once Lost) on about two-thirds of the dates and Witch Mountain (Exhibit A Vest Metal band) on the others. Yup, you read that correctly: Yob are headlining above Enslaved! Kinda crazy given Enslaved’s legendary status, but I guess it makes sense with Yob’s recent meteoric rise. I’m sure it was something of an ego blow for Enslaved to be asked to support this tour, but it’s probably a good opportunity for them to gain exposure amongst this newest generation of doom fans. I’ll always be interested in anything Doug Sabolick does, so Ecstatic Vision should be a trip, and as for Witch Mountain… which band is that again?

Here are the dates:
3/04/2015 Press Club – Sacramento, CA w/ Will Haven
3/05/2015 Brick By Brick – San Diego, CA w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/06/2015 Rey Theatre – Los Angeles, CA w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/07/2015 Slim’s – San Francisco, CA w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/09/2015 Hawthorne Theater – Portland, OR w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/10/2015 Rickshaw Theatre – Vancouver, BC w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/11/2015 Corazon – Seattle, WA w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/12/2015 Crazy Horse – Boise, ID w/ Ecstatic Vision
3/13/2015 Bar Deluxe – Salt Lake City, UT w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision
3/14/2015 Summit Music Hall – Denver, CO w/ Enslaved, Ecstatic Vision

Skipping Adelaide as is the norm :(
life is noise proudly presents:

YOB (USA)
Australian Tour
August 2015


life is noise is proud to present the Australian debut of one of the finest doom metal bands in the world: Yob.

Yob might be one of the best bands in North America. – The New York Times

In 2014, Yob released the best doom metal album of the year. Near universally praised, Clearing the Path to Ascend topped Rolling Stone’s list of the best metal albums and was critically lauded by everyone from Pitchfork to The New York Times. Never has doom metal been at the forefront of the public consciousness like this, and it’s easy to see why: though it’s come almost two decades into their existence, Yob have made not just the best album of their career – they’ve made what will come to be regarded as one of the defining records in the pantheon of doom metal.

Clearing the Path to Ascend is magnificently loud and rapturously strident, but, at its heart, it quietly provides a sense of support for our innermost being; succor for our very souls. – Steel for Brains

Which is not to say any of this came easy. Few bands hit their creative stride after seven records and almost twenty years, and Yob’s recording career has led them to stints with Metal Blade and Profound Lore before settling at their current home with spiritual siblings Neurosis at their label Neurot Recordings. The Neurosis comparison is obvious, but for every moment of earth-shaking post-metal, there are flourishes of old-school, soul-crushing sorrow that hark back to Black Sabbath and Saint Vitus; for every Earth-like meditation, there’s a measured catharsis of energy that recalls the explosive sludge of Melvins.

Psychedelic rock, stoner rock, stoner metal, blues metal, ambient: all reside comfortably in YOB’s wheelhouse, coalescing and collapsing on a path that stretches as far as the listener’s imagination. – Pitchfork

What makes Clearing the Path to Ascend such a landmark record is its stellar two-track second half. While the album’s opening act bathes in layers of funereal dirge and existential dread, its penultimate and closing tracks mark one of the genre’s finest half-hours as the trio push through to the other side of hell. With every repetition, Mike Scheidt’s riffs grow all the more hypnotic, his pious incantations ever-more compelling. Yob have succeeded where many of their contemporaries fail, imbuing the oft-tired tropes of a monolithic genre with untold emotion and transcendent zeal. This is doom metal reborn.

All dreams must end—but by extension, so must all nightmares. On Clearing The Path To Ascend, Yob has beautifully, brutally conjured a bit of both. – The A.V. Club

Yob’s live show is everything you’d want from a power trio. From frenetic riffs and furious drumming to slow, crushing doom, a Yob gig is less a performance and more a communal brain-fuck. They hold their audience transfixed with brief moments of brooding, atmospheric, almost ambient respite, before pulverising them with a massive, brutal crush of noise.


Witness Yob on their first ever Australian tour on the following dates:

Perth - August 19 - Rosemount Hotel
Melbourne - August 21 - Max Watt’s
Sydney - August 22 - Manning Bar
Brisbane - August 23 - Crowbar

Tickets on sale now through http://lifeisnoise.com.au/, Oztix and venue outlets.

@ Yob Lleh - Sorry you live in a town that most acts want to avoid...

I am looking forward to seeing them live some day.

As both, and any YOB fan, should!!!

I saw them this March and it was a most amazing show!

They played with Witch Mountain, Ides of Gemini and MARS at a small club in New Orleans, Louisiana.
WOW!
Preceding bands were pretty damn good.
YOB took the stage and delivered a mesmerizing set!
These 3 guys will encapsulate you with their sound and musical art- if you'll let them.
Their musicianship was, and is, tight and harshly glorious, poetic across the board of music. They hammer the ground, sail to clouds, slam you in the side of
the strongest mountain then melt you down the slope they've pounded before; and you feel you've taken the journey with them many times & years before.

Go see YOB if you are able!
One of the best shows of my life!

Absolutely loved them live, including the vocals. They really are incredible. Don't remember the specific songs, but we got plenty of Clearing The Path. Will see them again for sure.

New album coming mid year:

http://label.relapse.com/yob-complete-n ... e-records/
Oregon based cosmic trio YOB has completed recording their highly anticipated 8th full-length album and long-awaited follow-up to the critically acclaimed Clearing The Path To Ascend. The album will contain six tracks co-produced by the band and recorded with engineer Billy Barnett at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, OR, with mastering handled by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive). The album has already appeared on the Most Anticipated Albums of 2018 list by numerous publications including Decibel Magazine and Stereogum.

The new album is set for a summer release via Relapse Records, whom YOB have officially signed to following a series of reissues with the label. Frontman Mike Scheidt commented on the new material and signing:

“I have many, many albums in my collection that have been released by Relapse, and I’ve been a fan of their releases for nearly 30 years. We’re honored and excited to release our new album with Relapse. We can’t wait to get back at it and share this new music with our friends worldwide!”

Additionally, YOB recently reissued their fifth full-length album, The Great Cessation, in December via Relapse. That album can be streamed via all digital retail outlets HERE and ordered via Relapse.com HERE.

YOB has also announced a brief run of dates in 2018, including appearances at Modified Ghost Festival in Vancouver and Sabertooth Festival in Portland. A complete listing of dates can be found below.

Pretty cool:

https://www.revolvermag.com/premium-vid ... w%E2%80%9D
Revolver's "No Distortion" series invites heavy music artists to ditch their amps, pare down their songs, and showcase their intimate side. In this episode, Mike Scheidt, singer, guitarist and principal songwriter for sludge-doom act YOB, welcomes us onto his father's tree farm just outside of Eugene, Oregon, where he delivers a stripped-down, transcendent reinterpretation of their epic song "Marrow," from 2014's album Clearing the Path to Ascend.
