WHAT? NOBODY TOLD ME….

BRAND NEW ALBUMS FROM THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS

It’s true. They Might Be Giants are ringing in 2019 with three fantastic new musical projects. These are exclusive releases directly from TMBG's label Idlewild Recordings to YOU. They won’t be on streaming services, so don't miss this very exclusive opportunity to have an original piece of Dial-A-Song history. And then there is SOME MURDERED REMAINS
A free sampler download directly from TMBG.












It's a free 6-song sampler of new music from They Might Be Giants. Just sign up here and we’ll send you the link. (Don’t worry, our fancy chimp-run mail provider automatically weeds out duplicate addresses so you won’t get subscribed twice. You’ll just get the songs.)

...BUT THEN AGAIN

WHY JUST GET A FREE SAMPLE WHEN YOU CAN GET THE WHOLE THING!?













                           



MY MURDERED REMAINS and THE ESCAPE TEAM

By popular demand, the many new and original songs that have populated this year’s Dial-A-Song project now are available on disc and as an instant download.

My Murdered Remains is 16 songs and includes the instant classics “The Communists Have the Music,” “Ampersand,” and “The Neck Rolls Aren’t Working.” And if you act right now the instant download also comes with a bonus disc of 16 additional songs, which has been casually dubbed More Murdered Remains. If you order the CD or pre-order the vinyl album you will also receive an instant download of all 32 killer tracks. Vinyl arrives mid to late March.

The Escape Team is a different kind of album set for the band, with eleven musical portraits of characters drawn from David Cowles’ comic book The Escape Team. These tracks move from the cartoon violence of the book's Big Daddy Roth-inspired origins to haunting prequels. Includes “The Poisonousness” with Robin Goldwasser, “Jackie the Clipper,” “Dr. Sy Fly,” and eight more fantastic tracks. And again, get the instant download, or order the CD or pre-order the vinyl album you will also receive an instant download of album. Vinyl arrives mid to late March.
 














THE JOHN HENRY DEMOS

A few years back we released a set of pre-production recordings that would become the John Henry album. Created with long time collaborator Patrick Dillett and our evolving live band, many of the tracks have previously been passed around the internet, often in compromised fidelity. Giving the material a closer listen it only seemed fair that this bit of history got a better airing. These tracks in full high-fidelity not only sound remarkably fresh, they provide an interesting look into the process of the album’s creation. Get the instant download here. Of course, if you order the CD or pre-order the vinyl album you will also receive an instant download of album. Vinyl arrives mid to late March.

Or see how all of these offerings look right here.









                           
                       
                   
               







                                       
                                   
                               
                           
                       
                   
               
           
   







A couple of special notes about these shows--many of them are two-nighters, so we are keeping things zesty by doing completely different shows. One show is the 80s vs. the 10s, the other is the 90s vs. the 00s. Of course, for encores, anything goes and we will pull from the other decades just to make sure all in attendance are fully sated, but you get the idea. We are sorry to report our pal Curt Ramm won’t be able to make this run, but his notoriously epic trumpet chair will be filled by the incomparable Mark “Loveman” Pender (famous for his blistering solo turns on the Conan show and the man responsible for the original high notes on Doctor Worm). Needless to say, these shows should not be missed!


As always, we rely on you, the official They Might Be Giants street team, to get the word out about these shows. Please talk these shows up on your youtube channel, reddit fee, or Facebook page. One easy link for the whole tour is this one: http://bit.ly/TMBG-Shows
