After 15 years as a band, Yeasayer announce break up

Experimental Brooklyn indie band Yeasayer have announced their decision to call it quits after 15 years together as a band.

Since their debut album, All Hour Cymbals, was released in 2007, Yeasayer have gone on to release five studio albums with their most recent, Erotic Reruns, being shared in April earlier this year.

Current band members Anand Wilder, Chris Keating, and Ira Wolf Tuton took to social media to confirm the news: “We have decided that Yeasayer has reached its end,” they wrote. “It is a decision that has not been made lightly or swiftly, but the three of us agree that it is the right one at the time.”

They added: “We count ourselves lucky to have shared our 15 years as a band with so many people all over the world. To all that have supported us and engaged in our musical universe over the years, we thank you.”
