Hey guys, so Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are putting out their first new album in 4+ years.
HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE.
I thought they hated each other? I thought they all went off to do other projects and everything was dunzo? Are they "pulling a Strokes?" Does it even matter? In case you recall, I have been a fan of the band since their I guess now somewhat infamous Pianos residency in 2005, and they also played my 24th birthday party which was one of the definite highlights of that decade of my life when it comes to "cool shit that happened to me for no real logical reason." Actually I think I also got mentioned in an article about the band in the same sentence as "Brooklyn Vegan" (file under: things that don't happen anymore).
SO yes, I am very excited that they have decided to carry on and will hopefully come out triumphant on the other end of the hype storm that threatened to swallow them whole.
Their new album, entitled Hysterical will be out on September 20th in the US - check the video above for a very promising preview.
