CYHSY

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah had some major lineup changes, and it's basically just frontman Alec Ounsworth's project now, but that's not slowing them down. They just announced that they'll follow 2011's Hysterical and their 2013 Little Moments EP with a new album, Only Run, on June 3. The new single, "Coming Down," features a noticeable guest spot from The National's Matt Berninger, and the song sounds pretty inspired for a band who's future seemed uncertain not long ago. Check it out below.

CYHSY have also announced a tour of the US and Canada to take place after the new album's release. It culminates with a hometown show in Brooklyn on June 28 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/4) at noon.

All dates are listed, with the new song stream, below...

so after all these years Alec Ounsworth just wanted to sound like the National huh


it's also kind of sad that he feels the need to continue the name of the band (without any of it's members) - why not tour under your own name at this point?

There was such a narrow window of time for CYHSY's nasally sound to reach an audience and sustain momentum. The moment they slacked off with making music, the window closed shut.

@10:53, the original drummer is still present in the band.

10:54 is right, they had a chance and I'll still say that first album is really good and stands up pretty well. Too bad they were never able to capitalize on it.
