THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS DIAL-A-SONG RETURNS FOR ALL OF 2018
NEW EUROPEAN TOUR DATES
“Oh my god, They Might Be Giants is underrated. That’s the best band of all time. Better than the Stones, better than the Beatles, better than Oasis, and better than Crosby, Stills and Nash.” – Open Mike Eagle, Pitchfork “Over/Under”
Why is the world in love again? US alt-rock legends They Might Be Giants released their 20th studio album ‘I Like Fun’ recently to huge acclaim from the likes of BBC 6 Music, MOJO, NME, Rolling Stone, SPIN and many more.
I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling point of view of these Brooklyn originals. Over a year in the making, songwriters and band founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh draw on themes of dread, death, and disappointment and set them to their driving, hyper-melodic music. The results will leave even the most heavy-hearted among us with a renewed sense of wonder. Fresh and sonically adventurous, the band’s command of the studio and the song is in rare form from beginning to end.
Their famous Dial A Song service has also returned for 2018, with weekly instalments toll free at www.dialasong.com, and on streaming sites everywhere, featuring new music all year long!
The band has also announced that their extensive world tour includes 13 European dates, with 6 UK shows including their first at London’s prestigious Barbican Centre.
