They Might Be Giants "No!" Deluxe Edition Re-Issue Out Today
Brooklyn’s beloved They Might Be Giants have been carving out their own path for three decades, continuously pushing the envelope and creating entirely new approaches to music along the way. The release of their first family album No! in 2002 opened new doors for the band and paved the way for other acts in the kid’s music genre. Today, the band releases a very special re-issue of the album on Idlewild Recordings to celebrate its 10-year anniversary. Complete with seven bonus tracks, including live and extended versions of old favorites, the No! Deluxe Edition Re-Issue is now available on iTunes and all other digital retailers.
In addition to a mind-bending live version of “Robot Parade” and an energetic live recording of “Clap Your Hands,” the album contains a bonus extended version of adored album track “Alphabet of Nations.” For a sneak peak of the full album, check it out on AOL Spinner, where it will be streaming all week.
TMBG is calling on fans across the globe to help create a brand new video for the track, and you can be part of the action! The band has asked fans from various countries to snap photos of their faces, their flags, and their culture, and post them to the band’s Tumblr or tag them with the hashtag #TMBGnation on Twitter. For full details, check out the band’s call-to-action video, and be sure to submit your photos by July 10th!
After receiving critical acclaim for No!, They Might Be Giants joined forces with Disney Sound for their “Here Comes” CD and DVD series. 2005’s Here Come The ABCs was named “the year's best children's album” by Amazon.com, while the accompanying DVD was certified gold. Both sequels received GRAMMY nominations, with 2008’s Here Come The 123s earning the band their second GRAMMY Award, for “Best Children’s Album.” With four home-run kid’s releases under their belt, They Might Be Giants' special, and inevitably sold out, family shows have become extraordinary happenings; truly redefining the all-ages rock show at the most unlikely venues including The Museum of Natural History, the Hall of Science, The Kennedy Center and Royce Hall.
Be sure to grab the special No! re-issue, and stay tuned for more from TMBG coming soon!
