Hello people! John Flansburgh here.
2015 is going to be an intense year of creativity, productivity and good old fashioned hard work for They Might Be Giants. A fleeting 32 years into it, we have a big April tour across most of the United States planned** as well as a monthly show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg*.
But the biggest news of all is the return of our Dial-A-Song project where we will be posting a new recording every week. Of course, this will generate an enormous amount of material that will be included on our new albums, but we sincerely want everyone to be involved in the ever-evolving experience of Dial-A-Song.
DIAL-A-SONG DIRECT. 52 NEW RECORDINGS over 52 WEEKS
If you want to skip over downloading the songs individually or streaming them direct from the Dial-A-Song site -- or simply want to show your support for this kind of effort -- we have just launched the Dial-A-Song Direct program which will deliver the original 52 songs into your inbox every week for the whole year. For $30 you can have a front row seat to this unlikely adventure in music. We are partnering with the good folks at Drip.fm to deliver all with download links. (We like to think Drip stands for "Dial-A-Song Recordings Is Perfect") We have explored their service completely and can assure you it is highly reliable with a clean interface. This is the link: www.drip.fm/dial-a-song-direct
*Coming in April and May! Seattle, LA, SF, San Diego, SLC, Portland OR, Anaheim, Boise, Dallas, Austin, Chicago, Minneapolis, Boston, DC, St. Louis, Philly, Madison, Pittsburgh, OKC, Columbus OH, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Albany… and more!
**On sale now: A year of Sundays in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. January is SOLD OUT. February tickets available at: http://bit.ly/1pQH0o2
THIS WEDNESDAY THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS TAKE OVER THE AIRWAVES IN MINNESOTA
And this is something happening tomorrow the we found kind of exciting… Because everyone agrees: This Wednesday, Nov. 19, on the 65th anniversary of James Ensor's death, KMSU in Mankato, Minn. will be playing TMBG all day long. This is the stream http://tunein.com/radio/The-Maverick-897-s34143/ There is also a Facebook page—just search "They Might Be Playing TMBG”
For the moment the lock remains open at They Might Be Giants 2015 Instant Fan Club at www.tmbgifc.com, but membership closes Jan. 5 no matter what. That’s all we’re going to say right now.
