YEASAYER tour N. America and Europe and prep single
Friends and Lovers.
We are sitting here on the verge of the New Year and a positive
spirit is abound. Camp YEASAYER have three wonderful announcements
one - Homeland Security:
Having shied away from the travels of North America for some time,
we are proud to announce YEASAYER's first North American tour.
After numerous trips to Europe and several ups and downs of the
East Coast, YEASAYER are gearing up to join dear friends MGMT
on a circle and a zigzag of both the United States and Canada.
I could drop press quotes and names of those who have praised
the music of YEASAYER over the last few months, and believe me,
it would be nice to toot our own horn after all the hard work
we have put in...but friends, there is still more plowing ahead.
Besides, we all know how to Google.
We know you are eager for new sounds, new spirits, and new revelations.
We all need to jive, shimmy, and shake. Bring forth your boogie,
brothers and sisters, YEASAYER and MGMT are coming to your town.
two - Operation Free Pete:
After traversing the New World, YEASAYER are pleased to announce
more European dates that include voyages to our long lost lovers
in Norway and Sweden, charting new boundaries in France and Spain,
and visiting dear old friends in the UK, Germany, and the Benelux.
Phase three - Post Holiday Days Present:
Currently hunched in the quarters of Moldy Jackson Room, YEASAYER
are putting together a "single version" of an undisclosed
album track for release in the first quarter of 2008. The single
will be backed by a live favorite that has yet to hit tape under
our control. Currently slated as a UK single, the track will also
appear here and there in various forms for you to collect and
More news from the Lodge soon(ish). Your distant palm reader.

RECORDING NEWS: Both PONYTAIL and INDIAN JEWELRY are gearing up
to record their follow up full longers. PONYTAIL will bounce around
the walls of the Magpie Cage in Batlimore City with J. Robbins
at the helm. This is going to be a jubilant album filled with
epic guitar jams, loco drumming, and of course the wonderful Molly
squeals and squawks. Fuck sugar rushes, that doesn't even compare.
