YO LA TENGO RELEASE

THE BUNKER SESSIONS EP OUT NOW

WATCH THE 5 EP SONGS PERFORMED LIVE AT THE BUNKER STUDIO IN BROOKLYN

NEW ALBUM THIS STUPID WORLD OUT NOW

It’s been a triumphant year in Yo La Tengo-world: Georgia, Ira, and James released a highly-acclaimed new album (This Stupid World), performed a sold-out US tour, and traveled throughout the globe. Ira even put a heater straight across home plate at Citi Field. And there’s more to come.

Now, they’ve got a new EP landing on digital services, The Bunker Sessions, which collects live performances of This Stupid World songs ‘Fallout’, ‘Sinatra Drive Breakdown’, ‘Aselestine’ and ‘Apology Letter’, plus James McNew-led classic ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ from 1997’s I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One. Watch the band perform the songs live at the Bunker Studio in Brooklyn below.

As of this week, the band is in Japan for a sold out run of shows. On December 7th, they’ll begin their annual Hanukkah residency at Bowery Ballroom (also sold out!). And in February, Yo La Tengo will hit the road once again, touring from San Francisco back to the east coast. Find a complete itinerary below.
