The heads of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fans were rolling when the announcement came that the band had new music on the way.
Slated for release this fall, their next album via Secretly Canadian will be their first album since Mosquito in 2013. The indie band has announced a pair of headlining shows in New York and Los Angeles for the upcoming album.
The band are thrilled to make their long-awaited comeback after their nine-year hiatus between albums and the three-year hiatus from concerts due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It is with great pleasure to announce our two signature shows in our two hometowns NYC AND LA supported by two extremely talented bands Japanese Breakfast and the Linda Lindas at the Hollywood Bowl, with the support of the Linda Lindas in Forest Hills and our more TBA support coming soon,” singer Karen O said in a statement. “Representing a few generations yo! I look forward to seeing you there! New music! New era! And New Home with Secretly Canadian! Lots to celebrate!
The group took to instagram to tease their return, with a sequence of Karen O staring at the camera to the sound of a synth-laden, rhinestone-adorned instrumental track.
Their first comeback show will be at Forest Hills Stadium in New York City on October 1. The Los Angeles show will follow shortly at the Hollywood Bowl on October 6. Both shows will feature an up-and-coming punk band. Linda Lindas as a special guest. Japanese breakfast will also be presented at the Los Angeles show. Additional guests for the New York show have yet to be announced.
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs should play a few concerts before the headliners this fall. They will perform in London and Australia in addition to appearing at Montreal Osheaga Festival during the summer.
