Just say Yea: Yeasayer For Huge Tour

 

Road-testing new songs, playing old
ones, on lengthy international trek.

By Fred Mills

 

Word arrives that one of 2007’s most hotly-tipped buzzbands, Brooklyn’s Yeasayer, will be doing, like, mad touring.
Actually, they already are knee-deep in a European tour. After they’ll vacation
for a couple of days in Texas for the Austin
City Limits fest, then they go down under to Australia
and New Zealand.
Mark your calendars for Oct. 22: that’s when the full blown North American tour
starts and it will take in most markets until concluding in early December.

 

BLURT saw the band this past March in Austin
at SXSW and we were, in the parlance, “gobsmacked.”

 

Ostensibly promoting their
acclaimed album All Hour Cymbals, the
group plans to work out new material on the road while playing choice songs
from that album, and they guarantee an “projectors, LCD grids, and
possibly a weather balloon.”

 

We are all about weather balloons.

 

A new album is planned for early next year. Meanwhile, cruise over to their
MySpace page — they’ve got some unreleased/demo and singles tracks available
for your listening pleasure.
