Hysterical is the third album by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, released on September 12, 2011, in the UK, Europe, Japan, and Australia and September 20 in the United States. The album is produced by John Congleton and features cover art designed by Maya Pindyck. The band released "Same Mistake" and "Maniac" as singles. It was the last album to feature long-time backing vocalist Robbie Guertin.
Standing on top of a mountain of hype and praise after the success of their first two self-released albums, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah did what few bands in their position would do: they took a break. Rather than striking while the iron was hot and getting another release into the impatient little hands of their fan base, they walked away to pursue other projects, allowing their members to follow all of their other ideas wherever they might take them for a couple years before eventually coming back together on their third album, Hysterical.

Following the reactionary fissure of 2007's Some Loud Thunder, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah went on an almost-five-year hiatus that appeared permanent in the wake of 2009's Alec Ounsworth New Orleans sojourn, Mo Beauty. Led by Ounsworth's blurry crow and polished by producer John Congleton, Hysterical comes as a surprise, the bedhead charm of the Brooklyn/Philly crew's 2005 debut having swelled into jubilant, wide-screen indie pop ("Same Mistake").

Hysterical freely casts Clap Your Hands Say Yeah as the very thing their detractors inaccurately claimed them to be so long ago: a band whose story is the most interesting thing about them.
