Yeasayer’s Erotic Reruns Out June 7

Yeasayer’s Erotic Reruns Out June 7

25-Date June/July Tour Includes Webster Hall In NYC + Teragram Ballroom In LA


Yeasayer’s new album Erotic Reruns (June 7/Yeasayer Records) distills a decade of twisted, paranoid pop into the Brooklyn band’s most direct, cut-to-the-bone album yet. Over 9 crisp and compact new songs, Yeasayer balance a sardonic and chilling reaction to dark times with moments of warmth and self-reflection. A 25-date summer tour will follow album release in June and July, concluding with a hometown headlining show at the newly re-opened Webster Hall in NYC on July 13. Tickets go on sale April 12. See below for full tour itinerary.

The band also released a video for fans last week, watch “I’ll Kiss You Tonight”:


Sirius XMU premiered “Let Me Listen In On You” this weekend on the Download 15 show, and KEXP and WFUV have both spun new music over the past few days as well. 

Pre-order Erotic Reruns here with various bundles including limited glow-in-the-dark red vinyl, prints, t-shirts and more:

Erotic Reruns was written and produced by singer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Keating, singer/multi-instrumentalist Anand Wilder, and bassist/singer Ira Wolf Tuton. It marks a return to the band’s origins: the core trio of Yeasayer taking complete artistic control and making this album in the studios each of them have built in their homes in Brooklyn and upstate New York.

The seeds for this album were planted while the band was touring in 2016 during the final moments of the election, and the result is a vehement reaction to what followed. The songs – taut and danceable, swirling with the band’s deep-rooted psych tinges - evoke everything from Fleetwood Mac and Phil Ochs to ESG and the grit of Iggy Pop and James Williamson’s Kill City.  “Blue Skies Dandelions” grimly alludes to the firing of James Comey. “24-Hour Hateful Live!” name checks Sarah Sanders and Stephen Miller, while “Let Me Listen In On You” grimly smiles at the surveillance state over squelching synths and a bridge that descends into near chaos.  

Since their debut, Yeasayer has appeared on the cover of the Fader and performed on CONAN and Fallon. They’ve performed at a number of major festivals including multiple appearances at Coachella and Lollapalooza, plus Glastonbury, Fujirock and more. Yeasayer’s songs have also been featured in numerous films, television shows, and video games.  Erotic Reruns will be the influential band’s fifth studio album (not including two live albums from 2011 and 2013), following 2016’s Amen & Goodbye.
