Hey everybody - we are BACK ON THE ROAD!

Yes-taking their rightful place at the top of the rock'n'roll food chain, TMBG will be headlining on February 2nd, 2008. Will there be a massive horn section joining us for the big show-why yes. Will it be super-special? Uh-huh. Are tickets going fast-well, 600 tickets have been purchased without any advertising, so the best seats are in fact "going fast" We invite you all to click on this link a get in on the good times.

"Spent our last day off in NYC wrapping up a couple of interesting projects in the studio that we had in our in-box. Yesterday we did a re-record of 'Take Out the Trash' for the next expansion pack of 'The Sims', which was recorded in Simlish (!?!). Simlish, the language the characters speak in the game, sounds kind of like a gibberish version of Ubby Dubby, French and Spanish, and ends up sounding like a Japanese version of the Sims theme (composed by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh, originally) with the band and the massive TMBG horns of Dan, Stan and Kurt sitting in. We also did a live session with the whole live crew for XM with an interview with our ol' ol' pal from the Massachusetts days Bill Kates, Subgenius afficionado and all-around kind fellow. That should be on the air very soon.

Evidently, TELEVISION LOVES TMBG! Happy to hear 'Birdhouse In Your Soul' was featured in the 'Pushing Daisies' program, and 'Take Out the Trash' is being featured in promos for 'Dirty Sexy Money', but thanks to touring, we haven't seen 'em ourselves yet! Now if only we could get a song in 'Law & Order'!

Stop by the TMBG myspace page at to say hi, and check out all the new videos!
