YOB Release Deluxe Edition Of “Atma”, Announce Spring U.S. Tour With True Widow


A deluxe version of YOB‘s 2011 effort “Atma” has newly been digitally released. That effort features a new mix and mastering job done by Billy Barnett, who also worked on the original version of the record. Although available now digitally, vinyl pressings of this updated version won’t be out until April 08th and can be pre-ordered here.

Vocalist/guitarist Mike Scheidt commented:

“When we first recorded ‘Atma‘, our aim was to have a raw production, lo-fi and punk, and we did get that sound. Over the years, though, we wondered what it would be like to have Billy Barnett remix Atma, allowing him to give it Gung Ho Studio’s scope and thunder, as he has on ‘The Illusion Of Motion‘, “The Unreal Never Lived‘, ‘Clearing The Path To Ascend‘, and ‘Our Raw Heart‘.

Due to our busy schedules, this idea sat on the back burner but when the pandemic hit, we had the time to not only approach the project, but approach it with this goal: to keep everything in Jeff Olsen’s amazing raw-punch production while having Billy make it volume-wide and monolithic in detail and space. We’re thrilled with the result, and hope you will be too!”
