Official press release:

Oregon-based trio YOB will release Our Raw Heart, the band's eighth full-length album and Relapse Records' debut, on June 8.

"We're very excited to share this new music," says singer/guitar player 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."

The news of the seven-track album's release arrives as the band confirm a North American tour, kicking off June 14 at 89th Street in Oklahoma City. The outing, which will feature direct support from Bell Witch, also includes performances at Austin Terror Fest and Mutants of the Monster 2018. A full list of confirmed tour dates is available below.

Our Raw Heart was co-produced by the band and Billy Barnett at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene, Ore., with mastering handled by Heba Kadry (The Mars Volta, Diamanda Galas, Slowdive). Pre-orders for Our Raw Heart will be available April 10 via Relapse.com.
