YOB has been enticing many with the first track off of their album Our Raw Heart, “The Screen,” and now they have shared the title track.

The press release quotes singer/guitar player Mike Scheidt saying, “The album title hit me early that year, so I knew the lyrics would be informed by it.” Though he declines to go into specifics—he’d rather the listener interpret the lyrics for their own unique experience—Scheidt does want to stress the collective nature of the title.

“So many people came to my aid while I was recovering,” a reference to his harrowing medical journey which he discussed recently with Rolling Stone.

Along with the new track the band is also adding new western tour dates to their already announced touring plans. Our Raw Heart will release via Relapse Records June 8th.
