New York rock trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs hardly need any introduction, but they’re ready to reintroduce themselves to crowds on both U.S. coasts, announcing shows at Queens’ Forest Hill Stadium on Oct. 1 and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on Oct. 6. The announcement arrives with the news that the band have signed with record label Secretly Canadian, confirming that they will be returning with new music in the fall. It will be the first time the band have shared new original music since 2013’s Mosquito.
Following the handful of summer dates the band is playing in the U.K., Spain and Australia, their U.S. shows will mark their first time back on the road since May 2019. Los Angeles natives The Linda Lindas will be supporting the band at both shows, joining Japanese Breakfast as openers in Los Angeles and a special guest “TBA” in New York. Further familiar faces will serve as support acts for the band’s U.K. and Australia dates, including English Teacher, Dry Cleaning, Porridge Radio, Anika and Wet Leg.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O said of the shows in a statement:
It’s with true life affirming pleasure to announce our two headline shows in our two hometowns NYC AND LA supported by two wildly gifted bands Japanese Breakfast and The Linda Lindas at the Hollywood Bowl, with The Linda Lindas supporting in Forest Hills and our other support TBA soon! Representin’ a few generations yo! Cannot wait to see you there! New music! New Era! And New Home with Secretly Canadian ! Much to celebrate!
