It seems today is quite the time to be announcing Autumn tours of this island as, following on from The National's recent confirmation, Brooklyn three-piece Yeasayer have released a set of dates for later this year.
First up, here are the new dates for the tour:
19 - Cardiff, Millennium Music Hall
20 - Manchester, Academy
21 - London, Roundhouse
23 - Newcastle, Academy
24 - Glasgow, ABC
All shows are Yeasayer headline shows. Earlier in the year the trio released Odd Blood, a record which we reviewed here. It had some wonderful slices ('Ambling Alp', 'O.N.E') of space-pop weirdness, as well as some other material which wasn't quite as good.
In between now and the October tour, the band will play a few festivals including Reading, Leeds, T In The Park, Latitude and Lovebox. In addition to those there are also a few solo shows, listed below:
26/5 - London, KOKO
5/7 - Cambridge, Junction
6/7 - Sheffield, Plug
12/7 - Brighton, Concorde 2
