Yeasayer Reveal Fall 2008 Tour

After nearly a year of incessant touring totaling over 200 shows we are happy to announce a wrap-up of sorts for the propagation of Yeasayer’s debut LP All Hour Cymbals. The gospel of YEASAYER spread through word of mouth (in some turf known as blogs) and the swapping of sounds. In celebration of what has been a splendid term on this continent we are pleased to announce the following in bullet point format:

Yeasayer will embark on two journeys through N. America, the Northeast/Midwest in October, and the West Coast in November. These shows will be Yeasayer’s first ever-headlining engagements.

Promised on this tour will be:
• brand new songs not heard on previous N. American tours
• a repaired voice for the son of Cricket, Anand Wilder
• new stage design incorporating projectors, lcd grids, and possibly a weather balloon

The LP format for All Hour Cymbals will finally be realized in late fall/early winter. The LP will include lyrics and will be pressed on 180 gram black vinyl. Yeasayer will be returning to the studio in early 2009 to begin recording the follow up to All Hour Cymbals. I have heard demos and they are mind slaying. The debut barely breached the surface of magnificence that is to come.
