YOB: Clearing The Path To Ascend CD Preorder Bundles Now Available; Release Day Looms

Two years after leveling the expectations of critics and listeners alike with Atma, Portland doom bringers, YOB, prepare to unleash Clearing The Path To Ascend, an aptly titled album for what will undoubtedly be the crowning achievement for a band whose journey now nears two decades of creating music as commanding as it is cathartic. As is the YOB way, the tracks here don’t simply offer a vacuous glimpse into the already riff-soaked doom genre. These songs demand the tandem attention of mind, body, and soul – etching a mark across a sound that finds YOB as formidable and unequaled as they’ve ever been. True ascension requires a destruction of those barriers that prevent any movement forward. Unsurprisingly, YOB pummels any and all of these obstacles with absolute authority, clearing the way for a genuinely visceral listening experience and 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, notorious for its reserve of vintage equipment, alongside longtime collaborator/iconic sound-sage Billy Barnett, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Sleep, Beastmilk, Nails) at Audiosiege Engineering, YOB will release Clearing The Path To Ascend on CD and digitally via Neurot Recordings and on vinyl via Relapse Records on September 2nd, 2014.

IDES OF GEMINI: Otherworldly Conjurors Unleash Old World New Wave Trailer

As Old World New Wave, the long-awaited new full-length from Los Angeles’ otherworldly doom weavers, IDES OF GEMINI, draws near, today the band offers up a haunting new trailer to whet the appetites of fans hungry for their forthcoming platter of ethereal nightmares.

Directed and produced by singer/bassist Sera Timms and shot by Timms with drummer Kelly Johnston-Gibson, the stunning, near-five-minute clip is at once despondent and beautiful, capturing both sonically and visually the true essence of the album with chest-caving urgency.

Get lost in the lurid sounds of Old World New Wave at THIS LOCATION.



IDES OF GEMINI features Timms (also of Los Angeles dark-psych alchemists Black Mare), Johnston-Gibson and guitarist Jason Bennett. Listed among Alternative Press’ Most Anticipated Albums Of The Rest Of 2014 as well as The Obelisk’s Records Not To Miss Before The New Year Hits, the follow-up to the band’s 2012 Constantinople debut, Old World New Wave was recorded at Valley Recording in Burbank, California, engineered and mixed by Chris Rakestraw (Danzig), mastered by Grammy award winning producer Matt Hyde (Slayer) and boasts the striking hand-drawn cover art of Johnston-Gibson.

Old World New Wave will be released on CD and digitally via Neurot Recordings and on vinyl via SIGE Records on September 16th, 2014.


“…darkly beautiful…” – Pitchfork

“Processional doom, [with] ethereal female harmonies and high-strung riffs [that] incite head-bowing, not – banging.” – Spin

“…a proverbial treasure chest in terms of atmosphere, ideas and contrasting musical textures…original and breathtaking.” – About.Com
