In what’s already been a year toploaded with comebacks, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have made their own mark in 2013 by debuting some live tracks, album art, festival dates, and teasers from their upcoming April album Mosquito.

So far this first single and the fan-caught live videos of previously debuted new tracks seem promising. But judge for yourself:
