YOB have been signed by Neurot Recordings for the release of their seventh album in April.
YOB's frontman Mike Scheidt commented on the collaboration as follows:
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 honour that runs deep. We cannot wait to share our new music with Neurot and our friends worldwide.
Stated Neurosis' Steven Von Till and Scott Kelly:
Steven Von Till: 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 honoured that we get the opportunity to work together with them on their next album.
Scott Kelly: 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 life's truth. There's is nothing heavier on the face of this earth than this band. The Neurot family is honoured to be a part of legacy of this, the monolithic treasure of sonic achievement that is YOB.
I saw them live with Neurosis back in December and I can back up inscomniac's words for them being fucking brutal. I had only listed to their music sparingly before seeing them live but their live performance is easily one of the best metal performances I have ever seen. Their performance made me a fan
