Brooklyn’s original alternative rockers, They Might Be Giants, are taking over North American stages on a massive 35-date tour in support of their deliriously catchy new studio album, Nanobots. The tour includes a “Celebrate Brooklyn” hometown show as well as stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Anaheim, Portland, Seattle, DC & Vancouver.
 
Always pushing the envelope on innovative presentation, they have released a brand new Craig J. Clark directed video for lo-fi album cut “Black Ops”. For best results, view in a darkened room. Watch the “Black Ops” video HERE!
 
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, catch the band live on tour!
 
Perfect pop music can come from anywhere and can go anywhere. They Might Be Giants have demonstrated this for a quarter century…”
The New Yorker
 
“Catch them if you can — their live shows always deliver.”
USA Today
 
“catchy pop heroics mixed with jingle-length songlets”
– Rolling Stone
 
’You’re On Fire” is a catchy and surprisingly toothy power-pop gem
Stereogum
 
“ …echoes Squeeze or their beloved XTC, exploits some pretty dramatic dynamic shifts, and takes a quite literal interpretation of the common idiom.“
