Yeah Yeah Yeahs were formed in 2000 as an indie rock trio consisting of Karen O (lead singer), Brian Chase (drummer) and Nick Zinner (guitarist). Their debut album, “Fever to Tell,” was released in 2003 and was certified as a gold record in the U.S. They released their follow-up album, “Show Your Bones,” in 2006, peaking at #11 on the Billboard 200. Most recently, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs released “It’s Blitz!” in March of 2009.

The group has toured as supporting artists with several other groups, including The White Stripes and The Strokes. Their most recent solo tour was in September 2009, covering 10 cities across the U.S. They also took the place of the Beastie Boys at Lollapalooza after the latter had to cancel tour plans due to Adam Yauch’s cancer diagnosis.
