“one more wry, clever song in the voluminous They Might Be Giants catalog, arriving shortly before a new album, “I Like Fun.”
The New York Times
“The crowd’s enthusiasm for the fresh material is unmatched even when the band proffers what is perhaps their most-loved song, “Birdhouse in Your Soul”… “
Rolling Stone
“one of rock’s longest and most prodigious partnerships”
Consequence of Sound
“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

 

They Might Be Giants will release their new full-length studio album I Like Fun physically and digitally this Friday, January 19. Jumping with surprises, vitality, and the startling point of view of songwriters and band founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh, the album draws on themes of dread, death, and disappointment set to driving, hyper-melodic music. Their hilarious and ultra-dark video for album title track “I Like Fun” embodies this epic dichotomy. Created by well known illustrator and animator Joren Cull, the “I Like Fun” video debuted with Uproxx today and is available to post/share HERE.
The alternative rock legends have enjoyed accolades from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, Slate, and more. Fans can hear the radical masterpiece in its entirety early, streaming via NPR First Listen and CBC Music First Play. Revered for their command of the studio and the stage, They Might Be Giants launch their world tour today beginning with a fifty-city trek across the US, then on to Europe, and beyond. Full list of dates here & below.

On I Like Fun, the spotlight is also on the band’s formidable long-standing live lineup; drummer Marty Beller, bassist Danny Weinkauf and lead guitarist Dan Miller. Co-produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, Donald Fagen, The National, Mary J. Blige), the album was tracked and mixed at the brand-new Reservoir Studios—site of the legendary Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded their platinum-selling album Flood.
2018 will also see the return of TMBG’s Dial-A-Song service, with weekly installments toll free at (844) 387-6962, www.dialasong.com, and on streaming sites everywhere, featuring new music all year long!
