They Might Be Giants Build 18-Foot Monster Hearse In New Video, US Tour!
They Might Be Giants celebrate the announcement of their 2012 US tour with this dramatic video set to their track "When Will You Die?" The video tracks the creation and short life of an 18' paper and wood replica of the day glo pink monster hearse that graces the cover of They Might Be Giants album, Join Us. World-renown graphic artist Paul Sahre created the original cover, and after designing a 3D scale model of the hearse in .pdf form decided he wanted to take this project to another level. So he set his laser printer to 3400%, and then set himself and his design staff to work to create the most monster of model monster trucks. The result is a video that must be seen to the end.

The tour, in support of both Join Us and the companion rarities album Album Raises new and Troubling Questions begins with a performance on Conan on January 26th, then on to a special 30th Anniversary show at Royce Hall in Los Angeles and a tour across the United States. The bands final show is March 10th in the bands hometown of New York City.
