YOB, “the Pacific Northwest trio able to swing effortlessly between menacing distortion and hushed reverie” (Associated Press), close out 2021 with the release of a remixed and remastered version of their stunning sixth album, “Atma”, and word of the trio’s first tour since 2019.

“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"”, explained Mike Scheidt of the newly remixed and remastered collection. “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!”...

The nearly-hour long album initially arrived in 2011, with NPR dubbing the five-track release “an incredibly spiritual” album “that explores the energy of self and its surroundings”. Guest musicians included Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Jeff Olsen and Dustin Rieseberg. “Atma” landed on numerous year-end lists, including best of countdowns from the New York Times, Decibel Magazine, SPIN and Pitchfork.

“Atma” (Deluxe Version) is available digitally now, with the digital release featuring 10 tracks: the five remastered/newly mixed versions followed by the original 2011 renditions. An array of 2xLP vinyl variants arrive on April 8th, 2022, and are available for pre-order here.

The variants are:
• Clear with gold pinwheels and splatter (135 copies)
• White, oxblood, and gold merge with splatter (335 copies)
• Bone white in clear with rainbow splatter (535 copies)
• Bone white with splatter (1000 copies)
