Yeah Yeah Yeahs announce reissue of Fever To Tell

Yeah Yeah Yeahs will play their first shows in four years starting next month building up to a November appearance at Sound on Sound Festival in Texas, and now after some teasing, via the clip above, they've announced a reissue of their 2003 debut album Fever to Tell.

Tweeting late yesterday, they shared a mysterious teaser clip based around a phone call with an extended version of the video having also been uploaded to YouTube with the simple title 'Phone Jam'.

The deluxe reissue will feature unreleased demos, B-sides, rarities, and a previously unreleased documentary from around the time of the album’s original release. The band have also shared a previously unreleased track called 'Shake It' which you can check out just above.

"A friend of a friend kept asking if we were ever gonna put Fever to Tell out on vinyl as it hasn't been on vinyl in 10 years," the band said in a press release. "That's not right. So here it is on vinyl for the first time in 10 years plus a time capsule of photos, demos (first ever recorded), a mini film documenting our near downfall and other fun memorabilia, from the turn of the century NYC, made with love + the usual blood, sweat + tears of Yeah Yeah Yeahs."

The reissue is out on October 20 and the band will play the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on October 25 and Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre on November 7 in support of the reissue.
