Yeah Yeah Yeahs prefer to do an EP again this year and make it special with the addition of a film footage.
Pocketing two full-length albums and two EPs, Yeah Yeah Yeahs prefers to go with the latter again. The NYC band will release a five-song record titled "Is Is" on July 24 via Fontana Interscope.
The five songs that made the cut were written during the tour for "Fever to Tell" (2003). The record will also include a short film footage featuring the band's two late-night shows at Grasslands Gallery in Brooklyn on May 7. The enhanced section will also include a live video for "Down Boy," as well as a video for the recorded version.
In determining who should be the person in charge of production, the band immediately pointed Nick Lunay (Silverchair, Taking Heads). Vocalist Karen O said, "Nick Launay was the natural choice having produced PIL Flowers of Romance, collectively a favorite between us. I put that record on and want to stuff my mouth with raw hamburger meat."
Tracklisting of "Is Is":
- Rocker to Swallow
- Down Boy
- Kiss Kiss
Tracks 1, 2 and 5 have appeared in the band's live DVD "Tell Me What Rockers to Swallow" (2004) but the remaining two are new to release.
