Yeasayer have announced a second fan show at The Lexington tonight. After an astonishing set at the same venue last night, the band told the audience of their plans for a repeat performance tonight, followed by an announcement via Nick Grimshaw on his Radio 1 show.
The announcement was given a mere 24 hours ahead of tonight’s surprise show, as a big thank you to all the fans who failed to get tickets for their first performance through the lottery system, for which there was an unprecedented demand. Yeasayer continue to show special appreciation to their fans, putting them first at every stage since they announced first track ‘Henrietta’ (sent out by post to 200 fans).
Tickets for tonight’s surprise show will be available on the door only, on a first come first serve basis. Get there early to avoid disappointment, tickets are available from 6pm. A full UK tour has been announced for September, calling at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the 27th.
Yeasayer will release their anticipated new album ‘Fragrant World‘ on 20 August 2012 on Mute, the follow up to 2010’s crossover hit ‘Odd Blood‘. Having set the internet alight with the teaser track ‘Henrietta’ in May, followed by the first single ‘Longevity‘ last month (both were named Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on Radio 1), the psychedelic experimentalists from Brooklyn are set to make an assured return with their most accomplished album to date.
