Yeah Yeah Yeahs have just confirmed Fight Like Apes as their special guests for their only Irish date at St. Georges Market in Belfast on Wednesday 26th August. Tickets are on sale now.
Fight Like Apes have just re-released their debut album on 2CD and download to coincide with a bumper summer of festival appearances.
The festival edition of the album includes the original acclaimed 12 track elpee, plus a bonus disc comprising 6 hard to find tracks which have been released across various single releases; plus the previously unreleased and near mythical Jape remix of â€˜Battlestationsâ€™.
FIGHT LIKE APES TV on MUZU.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are fronted by the inimitable and iconic Karen O, the New York three-piece released their latest album Itâ€™s Blitz! in April â€“ among many glowing verdicts it was described as â€œthe alternative pop album of the decadeâ€ by Spin magazine and â€œa strong contender for album of the yearâ€ by The Times.
Recorded with Nick Launay (producer of YYYâ€™s 2007 released â€œIs Isâ€ EP) and longtime collaborator TV On The Radioâ€™s Dave Sitek, the album sessions took the city dwelling band from the snow-covered fields of rural Massachusetts and Long View Studios, to Sitekâ€™s Staygold complex in Brooklyn before heading south to a studio in Tornillo in the Texan desert for further confinement and recording.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are Karen O (vocals), Nick Zinner (guitar, keyboard) and Brian Chase (drums)
