It was revealed yesterday via the Yeah Yeah Yeahs official MySpace page that the fearsome threesome have been plugging away at their third record, the follow-up to 2006′s Show Your Bones. Claiming to have worked all across the United States, “from a barn in the Northeast to a ranch in the Southwest,” the Yeahs are looking for their “next sound.” No title or release date was given for the as-yet-untitled effort.

One other item of note from the blog post was that the band has once again surrounded themselves with the cute overload that comes with hanging out with purring kittens: “Show Your Bones was written in Sam Spiegel’s home studio amidst the birth of a litter of kittens, little gold lions scrambling around. Amazingly therapeutic, nothing turns a frown upside down (there are many frowns in the record writing process) as a purring kitten in your lap. Alas our favorite kitten of all beloved SQUEAKER arrived just in time for record three! Abandoned by his mother, we’ve watched him grow before our very eyes from a blind and helpless little thing into a frisky and fierce little beauty- much like the tunes we’re writing. Go figure.”

Perhaps a hint to the title of the next record, the band also posted this graphic:

All together now… “Awwww! Cooooool!”
