Yeah Yeah Yeahs played new songs to fans at LA’s Teragram Ballroom last night (May 30) – watch them perform ‘Spitting Off The Edge Of The World’ and see the setlist below.

The New York band aired classics including ‘Maps’ and ‘Heads Will Roll’ but also treated fans to two new songs including ‘Spitting…’, which was announced last week (featuring Perfume Genius) and is released tomorrow (June 1). A song called ‘Black Top’ was also played, according to notes on setlist.fm.

It’s not known if the new tracks will feature on a forthcoming album. Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been on a lengthy hiatus; their last album, ‘Mosquito‘, was released in 2013.
