180g Vinyl Pressing Newly Remastered by Stephen Marcussen
Nearly 15 years after its original release, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' impassioned (and long out of print) debut album Fever To Tell is getting a remastered reissue in 2017. Fusing together blistering garage rock with punk's attitude and danceable rhythms, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs brought rock music back to the dance floor here. While The Strokes may have lit the fire of New York's nascent rock revival, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs kept it burning in the boroughs, setting the scene for the city's DIY rock scene and introducing the rest of the world to one of the most formidable frontwomen in music history, Karen O.
Released in 2003, Fever To Tell would become the blueprint for the countless indie-rock that emerged in early-2000s and beyond. Thanks to Nick Zinner's propulsive guitar and Brian Chase's thunderous drums the New York trio could produce gritty bangers like "Date With The Night" and "Y Control" to scorching love anthems like "Maps," that coincidentally put them on the map after it got serious play on MTV. The album would go on to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album and was certified gold in both the US and the UK.
While the band would go on to release three additional critically and commercially acclaimed albums, Fever To Tell will always remain their lightning a bottle moment. This single LP version features a new remastering by Stephen Marcussen on black 180g vinyl and includes and five newspaper lyric posters with exclusive photos by Nick Zinner, Spike Jonze, Lance Bangs, Julian Gross, Patrick Daughters and Cintamani Calise.
