YOB Unmask The Spectre


Doom metal merchants YOB have streamed their track Unmask The Spectre, from seventh album Clearing The Path To Ascend.

The follow-up to 2011’s Atma is released on September 1 on CD and digital formats, with a vinyl edition on September 15.

Mainman Mike Scheidt says the track is one of his favourite moments of the band’s career. He adds: “This part of the album gets dark – but it also has a sense of beauty and resolve. The mood and atmosphere nod equal parts to old and new YOB.”

The band kick off a European tour next month, including five UK dates:

Sep 04: Bristol Fleece

Sep 05: Manchester Roadhouse

Sep 06: Glasgow Audio

Sep 07: Leeds Brudenell Social Club

Sep 08: London The Underworld
