Blitzen Trapper have announced an extensive European tour covering Belgium, Netherlands, UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Denmark in April 2018.

The Portland, Oregon-based rock quintet are heading across the atlantic in support of their newly released album Wild and Reckless. Described by frontman Eric Earley as a “something like a cross-eyed stepchild to Furr“, referring to their break-through Subpop release. The new album was born from a stage production that the band spent the better part of a year producing. The half musical, half rock-opera dealt with heroin abuse, desperation, true love and western power structures. Early continues, “Ten years after Furr with all its talk of murder and the end of the western world, it seems there’s more to tell.

Wild and Reckless is out now on Lojinx CD, LP and Digital.

Dial-A-Song week 43 is “It Said Something”, visuals created by Victor Fitzsimons.

TMBG UK Tour dates 2016!

it just said something, nobody heard it but me
I wasn’t recording, anyway why would I be?
it said something new that wouldn’t come out of me
and I don’t even dream about that kind of thing

that’s not the insane part, the insane part is
first of all it can speak
second of all the thing it said, it’s like it read my mind

it just read my mind now I have to lay down
think things over everything up is down
it just said something, I was sleeping and then
I was awoken, I’ll never sleep again

excavate the book, nobody needs to know why
sell the delusion look it in the eye
speak it in reverse so the babies can see
dress them in silver, set the monkeys free

that’s not the insane part
the insane part is first of all it can speak
second of all the thing it said it’s like it read my mind

it just said something, I was sleeping and then
I was awoken, I’ll never sleep again
it just read my mind now I have to lay down
think things over everything up is down

it just said something, I was sleeping and then
I was awoken, I’ll never sleep again
it just read my mind now I have to lay down
think things over everything up is down

Brooklyn’s very own perpetual-motion machine, They Might Be Giants are releasing their second album of 2015. The eagerly awaited follow up to their Grammy-winning “Here Come the 123s” and the Grammy-nominated “Here Comes Science”, the legendary originals return to the world of kids stuff with a fantastic set of new songs. Why? will be released 27th November via Lojinx and features a collection of new songs on their 2015 Dial-A-Song re-launch.

Coming out of the gate with the odd brilliance of “Oh You Did” through the pop charm of “Out of A Tree,” “Elephants” and “Omnicorn,” to the rocking optimism of “Then The Kids Took Over,” Why? has everything to delight both kids and parents alike. The album also celebrates marriage equality with the song “And Mom and Kid,” a track the band contributed to an HBO special on family diversity called “A Family is A Family is A Family.” Love wins! TMBG’s projects for kids always deliver memorable songs with irresistible melodies and original production values — all in a family-friendly package with none of that pandering aftertaste.

They Might Be Giants are in the middle of an epic year. They are releasing a new song (and video) every week through their Dial-A-Song project and touring non-stop. They will be returning to the UK in January 2016.
