They Might Be Giants 16th Studio LP Out Today, Tour + SXSW
Two-time GRAMMY winning Brooklyn originals have just released an extraordinary 16th studio album Nanobots--returning with electrifying pop melodies, vivid lyrics and just enough bass clarinet. Over three decades They Might Be Giants have perfected their deliriously catchy, original sound, and Nanobots 25 startling tracks in 45 memorable minutes play to all the bands strengths. The album was created at the private studio of their long time producer Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, David Byrne, Mary J. Blige). It's available at all digital & physical retailers today via Idlewild Recordings, and marks the debut offering through the band's new distributor Megaforce.
Nanobots finds the band in fine form, receiving accolades from SPIN, Alternative Press, MAGNET, Rolling Stone, WIRED, New York Magazine and more. The call and response chorus and percussive guitar line of “You’re On Fire” premiered with Stereogum and dares even the grumpiest wallflower not to dance. Download the “You’re On Fire” MP3 HERE & check out the full album streaming at Rolling Stone, AOL Spinner and MSN Music.
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.
