They Might Be Giants today released a new video from their latest album I Like Fun. “The Greatest” video features non-other than Nick Offerman, familiar to many from his varied roles in Parks & Recreation, Fargo, Gilmore Girls and more. Watch, like and share on YouTube HERE.

Over on the other side of the pond, new album I Like Fun debuted at #3 in the Independent Albums, #8 in Alternative Albums, #14 in Tastemakers and #22 Top Album Sales! 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.

The album’s release coincides with a world tour that kicks off with a fifty-city trek across the US, then on to Europe in September:
