Legendary trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs, makers of iconic indie hits like Heads Will Roll, Date with the Night, Maps, Sacrilege, and recent tune Burning, are ready to make their long-awaited Splendour comeback. Their appearance is off the back of the latest addition to their incredible canon, Cool it Down, their fifth studio album and first since 2013’s Mosquito. The eight-track collection, a landmark in their catalogue, is an expert distillation of their best gifts that impels you to move, and cry, and listen closely. They never expected it to be so long between albums, and they certainly stayed busy. There was a tour for their 2003 debut album, Fever to Tell that was re-issued in 2017; Karen released an album with Danger Mouse (Lux Prima, 2019) and co-composed the score for the animated film Where Is Anne Frank?; Nick made an album with his hardcore side-project Head Wound City, scored films, and collaborated with artists including Phoebe Bridgers, Amen Dunes and Songhoy Blues; drummer Brian Chase started his own label Chaiken Records. Karen and Brian both became parents in recent years. With their sparkling hooks and high energy performances, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are front-runners for the title of best live band in the world. Be front and centre to experience the alchemy, the transformative magic that will happen when the Yeah Yeah Yeahs hit the stage at Splendour.
