Yeah Yeah Yeahs have announced two shows in the UK this summer. They’re playing the 02 Apollo in Manchester, England, on June 5, where they’ll be joined by English Teacher. At the 02 Academy Brixton in London on June 7, Dry Cleaning and Anika are also on the bill. Karen O and co. have promised to play new songs at the shows. Tickets go on sale this Friday. 

Their statement reads:

OK UK! We are coming to lend our light to dark ages and holy shit are we ready to play our hearts out for you!! Yeah it’s been 9 years since we’ve graced your club stages! Yeah we’ve got some tunes so fresh and so NEW to try out on you! Yeah the bill is so MAJOR with Dry Cleaning and Anika in London and English Teacher in Manchester. Dress up! Make a night of it!

Alongside some festival sets this summer, including Primavera Sound, the dates mark the band’s live return for their first shows since 2019. They delivered a particularly memorable early pandemic isolation performance in 2020.
