Yob announce Dave French as official drummer
Earlier this week Yob parted ways with longtime drummer, Travis Foster. Today the stoner/sludge metal band announced the permanent addition of touring drummer Dave French to the group. French has previously spent time in the Seattle, WA doom metal band Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, however, since 2021 he has filled in as the touring drummer for Yob.
Yob shared the following statement via social media:
We're very happy to announce that Dave French is officially joining Yob as our new drummer.
We've been friends, neighbors, tour mates and admirers of Dave for over a decade. We first met in 2012 when he was playing drums for Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth.
His crushing approach and commitment to detail behind the kit was remarkable. Since then we've toured with Dave in multiple scenarios when he was working as a tech or sound engineer for bands like Neurosis, Voivod, Sleep (also Om, Boris, Soundgarden, MC50) over the years.
Dave has been playing drums with us live since 2021 and has brought his focus, energy and inspiration to every moment. We're thrilled to welcome him to Yob.

I'm shooting my load in your woman
Yob on my knob, like corn on the cob 🎶
THEY TOOK OUR YOBS!!!
It's really got to suck to be a highly skilled professional musician and always playing with bands that make no money while you are still touring 8-10 months out of the year for the paltry salary
The term "professional" musician is highly overused nowadays. Anyway, no need to feel bad for anyone because nobody is forcing them to do this. Just as nobody owes them a living. If they can't make ends meet doing what they love, they can join the rest of the herd doing work they dislike.
Everyone keeping up here? Anyone care??
Who will sheet rock for the sheet rockers while this tour goes on?
The articles about bands nobody cares about are getting boring. Jannies, please go find the latest Instagram allegations so we can have lit comments again. You know we are only here for the comments right?
The anons are Lambgoat's best writers. How highly skilled do you have to be to roadie for Neurosis?
Meh. Should have hired Chip Belgium.
French Sheet rock is solid.
The game hasn't been the same since Oceano dropped 'Depths' in 2009 🔥
It's bad enough this website switched to a pay-to-publish format, but what's sadder is people pay for these articles to appear only to be obliterated in the comments.
^^^ If you jump around a bit, there is a reoccurring NJ scene gossip/rumor about the ex-frontman of For The Live Of laying pipe to all his bandmates gf's, and thus being kicked out of the band and/or not asked back for reunion shows (that's the only fuzzy part - the f*cking and blowjobs are all true).
How's the fries, Dave?
Yob on goo
