Yob and Drummer Travis Foster Opt to Part Ways


After roughly 17 years behind the kit for Yob, drummer Travis Foster is no longer with the band. That news came yesterday, as the cosmic doom outfit announced the change on social media.

“As many of you know, Travis has been unable to join us on the road over the past year. We have talked regularly over that time and after many discussions, we have reached the decision to part ways. We love Travis like a brother and cherish everything he has brought to the band over almost two decades together. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”

Foster was a member of the band from 2003 to 2005 and then rejoined the band from 2008 until this week. He was featured on Illusion of Motion, The Unreal Never Lived, The Great Cessation, Atma, Clearing the Path to Ascend, and Our Raw Heart.
