After several albums on Profound Lore, Oregon doom trio Yob have signed with Neurot Recordings. The band’s seventh album will be out this Fall, and they’ll be playing the Roadburn Festival in April. Vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt commented on the band’s signing:
Yob is very happy to have signed to Neurot for our new album. Travis, Aaron and I agree that Neurosis is the epitome of forward-thinking heavy music, made with zero compromise. Our love for their music is total. Neurot’s dedication to putting out uncompromising music is no different. To have this opportunity to put an album out on their label is an honor that runs deep. We cannot wait to share our new music with Neurot and our friends worldwide.
Neurot Recordings owners Steve Von Till and Scott Kelly, who also happen to be in a little band called Neurosis (duh) commented on the band joining their roster. Steve Von Till commented:
This was meant to be. Neurot has always sought out to work with those who share in the purification of spirit through sound and who harvest their sound from originality and intensity. When I listen to Yob, see them leave it all on the stage, or share a conversation with them about life, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that they embody what Neurot stands for completely and we are so very honored that we get the opportunity to work together with them on their next album.
Scott Kelly added:
Yob as with all things that actually matter, there is only one. They have built their temple with a foundation concreted in absolute truth. The truth is the riffs, the truth is in the delivery, it’s in the unwavering commitment, and in the handshake and the look in their eyes. If you don’t know them, then you are fucking up your own lifes’ truth. There’s is nothing heavier on the face of this earth than this band. The Neurot Family is honored to be a part of legacy of this, the monolithic treasure of sonic achievement that is Yob.
