They Might Be Giants has announced the release of I Like Fun, a remarkable 15-track album, available physically and digitally on 19th January 2018. I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling point of view of these Brooklyn originals. 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. Fresh and sonically adventurous, the band’s command of the studio and the song is in rare form from beginning to end. Featured by The New Yorker, album closer “Last Wave” is a deceivingly upbeat track that leaves you with a pit in your stomach by, as Linnell points out, “reminding you of your darkest fears.” “Last Wave” is available to post/share here: Youtube | Spotify | Apple Music.

Oh my god, They Might Be Giants is underrated. That’s the best band of all time. Better than the Stones, better than the Beatles, better than Oasis, and better than Crosby, Stills and Nash. – Open Mike Eagle, Pitchfork “Over/Under”

Why is the world in love again? They Might Be Giants has announced the release of I Like Fun, a remarkable 15-track album to be available physically and digitally on 19th January 2018.

I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling point of view of these Brooklyn originals. 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.

On I Like Fun, the spotlight is also on the band’s formidable long-standing live lineup; drummer Marty Beller, bassist Danny Weinkauf and lead guitarist Dan Miller. While the group enjoys a reputation for delivering one of the liveliest shows around, the album accomplishes the rare feat of capturing that ecstatic intensity on disc. Co-produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, Donald Fagen, The National, Mary J. Blige), the album was tracked and mixed at the brand-new Reservoir Studios—site of the legendary Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded their platinum-selling album Flood.

2018 will also see the return of TMBG’s Dial-A-Song service, with weekly instalments toll free at www.dialasong.com, and on streaming sites everywhere, featuring new music all year long!

A free download from They Might Be Giants, performing Flood live in its entirety on tour in Australia. DOWNLOAD IT HERE.

Flood was They Might Be Giants third album, and was a remarkable moment in our career and development both creatively and professionally. Facing the specter of a label major deal and the critical magnifying glass turning to the “college rock scene” TMBG managed to fashion a sprawling original album both sonically engaging yet still closely following our original musical mission.

After an incredible year of creativity, posting 52 new songs over the course of 2015, we are proud to announce the release of They Might Be Giants new disc PHONE POWER. Boasting 18 pop gems, Phone Power continues the all-killer, no-filler tradition of the band’s current efforts. The disc includes “I Love You for Psychological Reasons” the standout track that will be lodged in your head with barely a second listen, and a disarming reworking of Destiny’s Child’s classic “Bills, Bills, Bills.”

Recorded in a secret location in New York City with Pat Dillett (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, The National, David Byrne) this album finds the Giants working mostly in the same power-packed configuration as their hard-working live line up, with a minimum of production embellishments.

Phone Power is out now on Lojinx CD & digital.
