Clap Your Hands Say Yeah return, new LP & dates announced
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah @ BAM in 2009 (more by Natasha Ryan)
"We have a new album coming out! It's called Hysterical, and it will be available on September 20th in the US, and September 12th in the UK, Europe, Japan, and Australia. ALSO, we are re-issuing our 1st album on vinyl. It has been remastered. We always thought the vinyl could sound better. That will be available on June 14th." - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
It was February 2009 when CYHSY played what they thought might be their final show at BAM in Brooklyn. Since then Alec Ounsworth made a go at being a solo artist and the other members have kept busy with various side projects too. Drummer Sean Greenhalgh, who sometimes fronts Guns n Roses cover band Mr. Brownstone, recently produced the Conversion Party EP. Robbie Guertin's band Radical Dads have a new album called Mega Rama out soon. Robbie also plays in Uninhabitable Mansions. And now CYHSY is back.
