Yeasayer Confirm January Australian Tour…Laneway 2013, Anyone?

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 3, 2012

triple j has once again delivered the goods, taking to Twitter to confirm that New York-based experimental rock outfit Yeasayer will be making a triumphant return to our shores.

Frontman Chris Keating confirmed the news that the band will be in town at the start of next year. This will push them way up on the list of favourites for Laneway Festival headliners. We already know that the band is afflicted with the festival as they headlined in 2011, so while it might be too soon to bring them out again for the fest, it’s still likely.

This will be their first time here, however, with their 2012 release Fragrant World under their belt, which the band very recently leaked for an online scavenger hunt. You can take a goosey gander at a preview of the album below, which is slotted for an August release, so any day now.

As the news is still really fresh, keep an eye out for developments, dates, venues, supports etc. The tweet is below. What do you reckon? Festival? Or Headlining tour?
