By on September 5, 2013


Brooklyn’s original alternative rockers, They Might Be Giants, will take over North American stages once again as they kick off a massive tour in support of their deliciously catchy new studio album, Nanobots. The tour includes stops at Philadelphia’s WHYY Connections Festival as well shows in New York, Washington, DC, Charlotte, Orlando, Austin and Los Angeles.

Today, the Giants unveil their unforgettable video for Nanobots album cut “You’re On Fire”- a playful, oeuvre in the duo’s renowned innovative style starring Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black actress Lauren Lapkus & co-directed by Hoku Uchiyama & Adam Bolt. You’ll never look at meat the same way again! Check out the “You’re On Fire” video

Nanobots is available at all digital & physical retailers via Idlewild Recordings, and marks the debut offering through the band’s new distributor Megaforce Records. 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. Revered for their energized live show and love of the road, be sure to catch the band live on tour in your city!
