Indie rock darlings Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have just announced a fall tour of North America.

The trek is being undertaken in support of CYHSY's third album, the critically acclaimed Hysterical. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros are slated to open the majority of these shows.

Asked how his band has managed to sustain a career, while so many of the first wave of blogger bands have fallen by the wayside, lead singer Alec Ounsworth was typically effusive.

"I think we are lucky because we got there before the cutoff and – believe it or not – I guess we’re a veteran band at this point," he said. "Things have changed so much since 2005 and the accessibility online is helpful to a degree. I just hope it doesn’t dumb people’s opinions of music as a whole."
