Today is the 30th anniversary of the release of our 3rd album Flood. It has become a “calling card” for generations of new listeners and, in that spirit, we invite all to share it on this DAY OF FLOOD. Hit all the buttons, shout it from the tree tops, or at least tell someone who has never heard TMBG!

SOLD OUT SHOWS! WEST COAST SHOWS!? TEXAS SHOWS? UK SHOWS!?
We will be performing special Flood shows from now until May across the United States. 29 of 31 shows are already fully sold out. We will resume the celebration with a Vancouver to Texas West Coast run starting in early fall and look forward to a UK run that might even include some shows on the continent. We also suspect we’ll be back in the South in 2021, playing all your favorites from Flood and much more in our 2 hour+ music marathon of a show. EXCELSIOR.
A VERY BRIEF HISTORY OF FLOOD
Before Alternative Rock, when rock dinosaurs still roamed the earth, They Might Be Giants crawled out of the primordial performance art scene of the Lower East Side and on to the college rock scene with a series of breakthrough songs and best-selling albums. Vaulted into the national scene by a series of highly creative videos, the band ultimately garnered the attention of the powerhouse major-label Elektra Entertainment. Collaborating with British hit-makers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, as well as emerging indie legends Roger Moutenot and Patrick Dillett, the band embarked on an album that would leave their lo-fi roots behind in exchange for a sonic adventure to be called Flood. Embraced by critics and audiences alike, the 19-song album would go on to go platinum and garner a clutch of timeless favorites for the band including Birdhouse in Your Soul, Twisting, Your Racist Friend, Istanbul (Not Constantinople), Particle Man, Dead, and many others.
