CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH
EUROPEAN TOUR DATES – OCTOBER 2014
‘ONLY RUN’ – OUT NOW
Xtra Mile Recordings
“Epic yet contemplative and open-hearted” NME
“Music surges like an almighty epiphany” Guardian
“Only Run’ does present an overall feeling of tentative euphoria …this is clever, electronically-infused rock” Clash 8/10
“Pretty sounding at every turn…inflating synths and drums to massive widths.”
After the release of their hugely anticipated fourth album ‘Only Run’ earlier this month, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are pleased to announce details of a full European tour in October.
Marking 10 years since the bands formation, the release of ‘Only Run’ at the beginning of June marked a momentous celebration for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The album sees Clap Your Hands Say Yeah returning to their early sound, and is once again a product of an artist’s singular vision, with guest vocals from The National’s Matt Berninger on lead track ‘Coming Down’.

As the album was met with high critical acclaim, and universal praise from the fans, front man Alec Ounsworth paid a trip to European shores to play a string of ‘Living Room’ tour dates – trading the usual tour venues for the living rooms of various fans and performing intimate live shows for a few fortunate ticket holders with extra London dates added due to high demand.
Now, the full band are coming over, as Clap Your Hands Say Yeah announce details of a full European tour. Kicking off in Germany on the 6th of October, the band will take in the major European cities before finalising with a string of UK dates including a show in London’s Electric Ballroom on the 10th.
