Watch the wild trailer for the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs documentary about their “near downfall”

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have shared a slice of footage from the band’s upcoming documentary There Is No Modern Romance, one of the videos found exclusively on the upcoming 15th anniversary reissue of their classic 2003 album, Fever to Tell.

Watch the wild trailer for the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs documentary, There Is No Modern Romance, which will be included in their upcoming Fever To Tell reissue.

The video sees the band tearing through the UK on their Fever to Tell tour. Directed by Patrick Daughters, it features Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase in rehearsal and on the road in 2003.

As NME note, the documentary tracks the band’s “near downfall” during this period, and that tension is definitely evident in snippet: a whole lot of arguments, bottle smashing and ferocious guitars. Watch it below.

The documentary will be released as part of an upcoming reissue of Fever To Tell, out on October 20th. The deluxe reissue will come with unreleased demos, B-sides, and videos like this documentary.

In a press release, the band say: “A friend of a friend kept asking if we were ever gonna put ‘Fever to Tell’ out on vinyl as it hasn’t been on vinyl in 10 years. That’s not right. So here it is on vinyl for the first time in 10 years plus a time capsule of photos, demos (1st ever recorded,) a mini film documenting our near downfall and other fun memorabilia, from the turn of the century NYC, made with love + the usual blood, sweat + tears of Yeah Yeah Yeahs.”
