Yo La Tengo to Tour about North America and Europe in 2018

Yo La Tengo

 Yo La Tengo is one of the more significant all-time American indie rock bands. They ignited out of Hoboken, New Jersey back in 1984. Since 1992, the current lineup has existed of Ira Kaplan (guitars, piano, vocals), Georgia Hubley (drums, piano, vocals), and James McNew (bass, vocals). 2015, Dave Schramm (original guitarist) rejoined the band and he appeared on their 14th album, “Stuff Like That There”.

They, unfortunately, have achieved limited mainstream success, but Yo La Tengo have been recognised as ‘the quintessential critics’ band’ and over 30 years since their beginnings they rock on with a very devoted band following.

Yo La Tengo have a really impressive back catalogue of album works, however, YLT is also highly credited for its encyclopedic repertoire of cover songs, both done through their live performances and albums.

Tour in support of new 2018 YLT Album?

There pretty heavy gigging schedule in the approaching new year has caused a lot of ‘wonder’ if the upcoming tours throughout March – June 2018 are coinciding in support of a new record.  Furthermore, it would be their first LP new music since 2015’s “Stuff Like That There” (on Matador Records).

Meanwhile, Matador Records have recently said this about the ‘is there / is there not’ a 2018 YLT new album looming:

“Much like the previously announced European tour, you are free to speculate whether or not these shows may or may not have something or other to do with new recordings that are typically played on turntables, compact disc machinery, car stereos, telephones, etc. Though we shall not confirm or deny anything of the sort, we are powerless (sadly) to stop you from wondering out loud just what’s happening.”
