We were late for the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs music. The band hasn’t released an LP since. Mosquito in 2013. But that’s about to change: Today, Yeah Yeah Yeahs announced he’s been signed to Secretly Canadian and will be releasing new music this fall. To celebrate their return, the group is also giving their first concerts in the United States since 2019.
These shows will take place in New York and Los Angeles. The NYC show takes place on October 1 with the opening of The Linda Lindas (there will also be another TBA premiere), and the Los Angeles show on October 6, with the perfect opening lineup of Japanese Breakfast and The Linda Linda.
“It is with true life-affirming pleasure that we announce our two signature shows in our two hometowns, NYC and LA, backed by two extremely gifted bands Japanese Breakfast and The Linda Lindas at the Hollywood Bowl, featuring The Linda Lindas in support of Forest Hills and our other TBA support soon! Representing a few generations yo! Can’t wait to see you there! New music! New era! And New Home with Secretly Canadian! Lots to celebrate! writes Karen O. in a press release Press.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m. local time. There is also a presale for American Express cardholders taking place on Tuesday, May 3 at the same time.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs previously announced a European and UK tour for the summer. News of the label change and new music also comes two years after Karen O said Australian radio station Double J that she felt “ready to make music”.
