YOB: New Album ‘Clearing The Path To Ascend’ Now Playing At Pitchfork; UK & Euro Tour Nears

26th August 2014

Yob

As commanding as it is cathartic, Clearing The Path To Ascend, the long-anticipated new full-length from Portland doom technicians, YOB, demands the tandem attention of mind, body, and soul. The path to ascend is clearly an arduous one, fraught with the peril of mediocrity. YOB pummels that path however, climbing upward into a realm that sets the band in a heavy metal place that has been and will always remain wholly their own. Recorded at Gung Ho Studio in Eugene alongside longtime collaborator Billy Barnett, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Beastmilk, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering, Clearing The Path To Ascend is a genuinely visceral listening experience.

In celebration of its imminent release, Pitchfork is offering up Clearing The Path To Ascend in its bone-crushing, soul-cradling entirety via their Advance Series at THIS LOCATION.
