Yob recently parted ways with drummer Travis Foster and has now announced touring drummer Dave French as his replacement. French has ben playing live with Yob for a little while now, so the choice isn't too surprising.
"We're very happy to announce that Dave French is officially joining Yob as our new drummer.
"We've been friends, neighbors, tour mates and admirers of Dave for over a decade. We first met in 2012 when he was playing drums for Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth. His crushing approach and commitment to detail behind the kit was remarkable. Since then we've toured with Dave in multiple scenarios when he was working as a tech or sound engineer for bands like Neurosis, Voivod, Sleep (as well with Om, Boris, Soundgarden, MC50, and many others) over the years.
"Dave has been playing drums with us live since 2021 and has brought his focus, energy and inspiration to every moment. We're thrilled to welcome him to Yob."
