They Might Be Giants Spring/ Summer Festival Update

After a hugely successful run earlier this year, They Might Be Giants will play several dates over the spring and summer of 2010, including two benefit shows in the Boston area. The two shows at the Regent Theatre in Arlington, MA will be aimed at kids and proceeds from the show will benefit Boston By Foot (www.bostonbyfoot.org). The band has played a series of successful kids’ shows in support of Here Comes Science, their acclaimed 2009 release.

The upcoming dates will also include several family shows across the country, as well as festival stops at Boston’s WXRV Earth Day Celebration (free show!), the Sasquatch Festival in George, Washington, and Manchester, Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Festival.

Released in September 2009, Here Comes Science has received praise across the board for its unique and exciting fusion of rock, education and humor. Boing Boing described the album as “top-notch pop music with humor that's aimed at both kids and adults” and called the album “better than great. Perfect.”

Earl Greyhound Premiere Ghost And The Witness

EARL GREYHOUND is pleased to announce the release of Suspicious Package, a blistering
rock inferno spun out of the Brooklyn trio’s inspired and innovative
rock-n-roll imagination machine.  Suspicious Package was recorded at Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica, under the nimble and keen producerly auspices of Dave Schiffman (Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers, System of a Down).


Earl Greyhound formed in 2002 with the collaboration of songwriters Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas, who began performing regularly as a duo in NYC. All the while, they were crafting the unique sound and songs that would form the foundation for a colossal rock band. Their influences swept from the strident English three-and four-pieces of the 70’s, to the dark pop and heavy grunge grooves of the 90’s, to the transcendental, noisy acid sounds of modern rock.

In 2005, EG recorded their first album, Soft Targets, but they also hit their first snag when drummer Chris Bear left to pursue his fortunes with the band Grizzly Bear. Reluctant to release the album without a permanent drummer, Matt and Kamara vowed to play relentlessly until their dream drummer found them. Guitar player Kirk Douglass (The Roots) witnessed a show and brought his friend and Gold Crowns band mate Ricc Sheridan to the next few gigs. Ricc says, “I awoke from a dream one night, and I knew this was my band.” A few weeks later, a rockneck-inducing jam confirmed that the band had found its soul mate, and they hit the ground running.  Soft Targets and EG’s wrecking ball of a live show earned them oodles of fans and critical acclaim from The New Yorker, SPIN, Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Pitchfork, among others. The next three years were spent touring the US, Canada and Japan as well as opening for Gov’t Mule, Chris Cornell and Saul Williams.


Suspicious Package is Earl Greyhound’s sophomore release. The album marks a turning point in the band’s maturation since the benefit of Mr. Sheridan’s full creative collaboration. Listeners will notice a marked expansion into the higher reaches of the sonic territories. Heavy, dark, groovy and grand—Suspicious Package is a reminder that though ROCK is still only a four-letter word, it can still pack a load of splendor.
