Album & Tour News from They Might Be Giants
Nanobots Out March 5 on Idlewild Recordings
SOLD OUT Brooklyn New Year’s Shows kick off 2013 Tour
They Might Be Giants have perfected their deliriously catchy, original sound over the past three decades. The two-time GRAMMY winning Brooklyn originals return with charming wit, electrifying pop melodies and just enough bass clarinet on their 16th studio album. Created at the private studio of their long time collaborator and producer Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, Mary J. Blige, Tegan and Sara), Nanobots will be released March 5, 2013 via Idlewild Recordings and distributed through Megaforce.
TMBG “combine a Dadaist sensibility with smart hooks.”
—The New Yorker
“They make defiantly uncool look and sound unbelievably cool…”
Nanobots finds the band in fine form. Title track Nanobots puts a dark cartoonish spin on the world of technology while the call and response chorus and percussive guitar line of “You’re On Fire” dares even the grumpiest wallflower not to dance. Blending the band’s signature storytelling, some dueling horns and sly humor, “Call You Mom” is a caffeinated pop gem. Download the "Call You Mom" MP3 where it premiered with Rolling Stone today & we encourage you to post & share.
They Might Be Giants’ innovative Dial-A-Song service and imaginative high concept, low budget music videos stood the band apart early in their career quickly rocketing the alternative rockers to mainstream success. Known for recording numerous themes most notably The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and the GRAMMY-winning Malcolm In the Middle theme, the band has 2 platinum albums, 2 gold albums, and have been nominated for 3 GRAMMYs, winning two. Known for their energized live show and love of the road, the band will kick off a 60-date international tour on February 27. Lucky fans in NYC will have several chances to experience the band’s explosive live show once more in 2012 at their three SOLD OUT New Year’s shows at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. Stay tuned for more from They Might Be Giants coming soon!
