Tyler Sargent Also Quits Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Written by Kiel Egging on July 7, 2012

Fresh from multi-instrumentalist Robbie Guertin leaving Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, bass player Tyler Sargent has followed suit and quit the band as well.

Sargent released a statement announcing his decision to leave yesterday, stating that he was “currently in the process of forming a presidential exploratory committee for 2016.”

Guertin, on the other hand, is planning to make more music with his other project Radical Dads, and according to the statement, is also planning to “pursue miscellaneous artistic endeavors, and also grow some vegetables.”

Both band members will play their last show with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah as part of a free concert at New York’s Times Square as part of the CBGB Festival.

According to Consequence of Sound, what is left of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will tour with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros in the American autumn.
