Yeah Yeah Yeahs have confirmed that they're on the way back - they're booked to headline Sound On Sound Festival in Texas later this year.

The NYC art-rock trio have been fairly quite for a while - this new date will be the Karen O, Nick Zinner, and Brian Chase's first full-band date since the end of touring 2013's Mosquito record.

Sound On Sound takes place 10-12 November in the Sherwood Forest just outside of Austin, Texas. Other names confirmed include Blood Orange, Grizzly Bear, The Shins, and Japandroids.
