Yeasayer is taking over the Fine Line on Wednesday, June 19th as part of their summer tour and believe me when I say you don’t want to miss this.
Yeasayer is an American experimental rock band from Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2006. The band consists of Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton and Anand Wilder. Yeasayer’s leader Chris Keating stated he got “a lot of inspiration and lyrics from books that I’ve read, poetry, or lines from a movie. Art is a constant back and forth, everyone is responding to someone else. Every song that you think is an original idea, someday you’re going to come across something in a children’s book that has the exact words you heard in your favorite song on the radio. Art is constantly curating this vast history of music, art and literature.” Keating has cited as other music genres and artists that inspired him, Mystikal, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Talk Talk, Dead Can Dance and classical music.
Amen & Goodbye (out April 1, 2016 on Mute) is the follow up to 2012’s Fragrant World. Moving away from a digital-heavy approach, Yeasayer recorded Amen & Goodbye to tape at Outlier Inn Studio in upstate New York, then brought on board Joey Waronker (drummer – Atoms For Peace/Beck) to deconstruct everything to make the final document. Amen & Goodbye features Yeasayer’s trademark sound without sounding like anything the band has done before. They have created a collection of strange fables from the Bible of a universe that does not yet exist.
Olympia, WA based Oh, Rose will be getting the night started.
Tickets are still available HERE!
