YOB to reissue 'Elaboration Of Carbon' on vinyl


James Rexroad

Official press release:

Epic, crushing, and heavy beyond words, YOB has achieved legendary status over the last two decades with their unmatched aesthetic and incredible body of work. Now Elaborations of Carbon, the debut full-length that set the stage for the bands singular, organic universe of transcendent doom, is being presented for the first time on vinyl as well as being made widely available for the first time across streaming services.

Elaborations of Carbon physical pre-orders are out September 15 and available via Relapse Records here.

Mike Scheidt comments:

At long last, Elaborations Of Carbon is available to anyone who wants it, and on vinyl no less! It's wild that EOC was first released over 20 years ago, counting the 4-song burned CD-R version we handed out to friends before releasing the 6-song album. We were swinging for the rafters, and gave it everything we had. It's been a blast to revisit this album and remember all of the good times we had.

Additionally, YOB's first full US tour in four years begins this weekend on Sunday, May 21 at Modified Ghost Festival! The headline tour dates have them making their way across the US throughout late May & June with select support by Cave In (5/28-6/12) & Pallbearer (6/13-6/24). Tickets are available now here.
