Interscope has signed the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and will release the New York trio's debut album, tentatively titled "Fever to Tell," on April 29. The critically lauded art-punk act will kick off a headlining North American tour April 3 at New York's Bowery Ballroom. The 22-date trek will hit major markets across the country before wrapping with two shows at Irving Plaza in New York.

The group had been rumored to sign with Interscope for months. The deal provides for the release of "Fever to Tell" via a division of the Universal Music Group overseas, but no international release date has yet been confirmed.
