Imaad Wasif Schedules Solo Tour/More Dates With Yeah Yeah Yeahs

    Imaad Wasif is set to continue his role as touring member of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs when the band launches a mini trek to the South Pacific with stops in Australia and New Zealand. Not before he squeezes in a brief West Coast tour in support of his self-titled solo debut, which came out this past April on Kill Rock Stars though. A veteran of such groups as Lowercase, alaska! and The New Folk Implosion, Wasif is a man  with a purpose: I want to save people with music. I feel that I was born to siphon away their poisons and negative energy so that they might be happier. This has mangled me at times but I have always found something beautiful in this mode of creation. It has given me my voice. For a cure to what ails you make it to one of the following dates:
