Yeasayer @ Hudson River Park in August (more by Bao Nguyen)

Yeasayer recently revealed in an interview with Pitchfork that they had finished their sophomore album and it would be released on January 19, 2010. There are four new songs they've been playing live; the four new songs are "Madder Red," "O.N.E.," "I Remember," and "Amblin' Alp." Yeasayer has also hinted that they would do something big in October.... [Wikipedia]
One "big thing" Yeasayer will definitely be doing in October is playing the next date of Guggenheim's It Came From Brooklyn Series on Friday, Oct. 30th. Rounding out the lineup are Tanlines (their only scheduled show as of now), author Rachel Sherman and comedian Max Silvestri as MC. Tickets are on sale.

Guggenheim's last "It Came From Brooklyn" show featured Julian Plenti aka Paul Banks from Interpol. Julian has more shows on the way in November.

Yeasayer is currently in the UK, on tour with Bat for Lashes (who played NYC in August).

Yeasayer's Anand Wilder and Ira Wolf Tuton worked on Bat for Lashes' new record, Two Suns, which came out in April. As for their own still-untitled CD, Yeasayer's new disc is expected early next year (see above). Pitchfork called their last album, All Hour Cymbals, the 197th best album of the decade.

At least one member of Tanlines (also playing the Guggenheim show) is in a new group with members of Professor Murder called Restless People.

Someone wrote on Wikipedia that the band may leak their entire album? Gosh, people are SO stupid sometimes.

i dont like this band, you can find better bands on the social networking site for storing videos. if you are a new band, and want some promotion, people can vote on your music....and you can see if you have something special.

cause this band, aint nothing special. they should have done a crowd test, cause they just hurt my ears.
