Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Hysterical NEW ALBUM
I remember just a week ago actually wondering what happened to these guys and why have they not released any new music. It has been 4 years since 'Some Loud Thunder' and surely a new album is due. Well turns out there is a new album on the way. According to their website the band is set to release their third album 'Hysterical'. I remember their debut album back in 2005 and the song 'The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth' - I loved that song and still do. Lead singer Alec Ounsworth did have a solo album in 2009 titled 'Mo Beauty' but it didn't capture the imagination like the full band set of CYHSY does.
Hysterical is set to release on September 20th in the USA, and on September 12th in the UK and overseas. The band has also stated that they are re-issuing fully remastered self-titled debut album on vinyl. Saying... "We always thought the vinyl could sound better - now it does!" The Vinyl Re-issue will be available on June 14th.
Here is a preview of what the Hysterical Album will sound like
