Genre-defying doom greats YOB are set to follow 2014's Clearing the Path to Ascend with their eighth album, Our Raw Heart, on June 8 via Relapse (their first for the label). "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," says frontman Mike Scheidt. The band co-produced the album with Billy Barnett. Stay tuned for new music.

YOB have also announced a tour with another genre-defying doom band, Bell Witch, who released the great Mirror Reaper last year.

The tour includes a NYC show on June 28 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/9) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Bell Witch are also opening some of the West Coast dates on Sleep's tour. Stream YOB and Bell Witch's latest LPs below.
