Yob: New Tour Dates Announced

  • Axl Rosenberg

Doom fans, rejoice! Yob are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their 2011 album, Atma, with a super-duper-extra-special deluxe reissue and — maybe even more excitingly — their first tour dates since before the pandemic.

First, the Atma of it all. The album has been remixed and remastered, for reasons frontman Mike Scheidt outlines in a statement:

“When we first recorded Atma, our aim was to have a raw production, lo-fi and punk, and we did get that sound. Over the years, though, we wondered what it would be like to have Billy Barnett remix Atma, allowing him to give it Gung Ho Studio’s scope and thunder, as he has on The Illusion of MotionThe Unreal Never LivedClearing The Path To Ascend, and Our Raw Heart.

“Due to our busy schedules, this idea sat on the back burner but when the pandemic hit, we had the time to not only approach the project, but approach it with this goal: to keep everything in Jeff Olsen’s amazing raw-punch production while having Billy make it volume-wide and monolithic in detail and space. We’re thrilled with the result, and hope you will be too!”

The updated Atma is available digitally via Relapse now, with the digital release featuring 10 tracks: the five remastered/newly mixed versions followed by the original 2011 renditions. You can stream it at the bottom of this post. An array of 2xLP vinyl variants arrive on April 8, and are available for pre-order here.
