Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 2012 tour dates + tickets

After a glowing Pitchfork review of their debut album threw Clap Your Hands Say Yeah into the public eye almost without warning, the band spent the better part of 2004-2009 touring their asses off to capitalize on the sudden spotlight. It’s no surprise that they hit a mini-burnout stretch, but now they’re back with Hystericalan album that shines as a result of the extra layer of maturity and a slower gestation period.

This Spring, they’ll be back on the road in support of the new album. The jaunt starts on the West Coast, includes stops at Sasquatch and the Free Press Summer Fest, and ends with a handful of dates with Two Door Cinema Club.
