TO CELEBRATE THE NEW TMBG U.S. TOUR
Check out the video for When Will You Die? from JOIN US right here:
They Might Be Giants celebrate the announcement of their 2012 U.S. tour with this dramatic video set to their track "When Will You Die?" The video tracks the creation of an 18' paper and wood replica of the DayGlo pink monster hearse that graces the cover of They Might Be Giants' album "Join Us." World-renown graphic artist Paul Sahre created the original cover, and after designing a 3D scale model of the hearse in .pdf form decided he wanted to take this project to another level. So he set his laser printer to 3400%, and then set himself and his design staff to work to create the most monster of model monster trucks. The result is a viral video that must be seen to the end.
You can download your own .pdf of the monster hearse model for your desktop, or larger if you are so inclined, right here: http://www.theymightbegiants.com/paper-monster-hearse/!
The tour, in support of both Join Us and the companion rarities album Album Raises New and Troubling Questions begins with an appearance on the Conan O'Brien show on January 26th, then on to a special 30th Anniversary show at Royce Hall in Los Angeles and on across the United States. The final show is in March in the band's hometown of New York City. Jonathan Coulton opens most of the shows, but check your listings. Special pal Corn Mo opens Baltimore.
