THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS ANNOUNCE NEW RECORD,
WINTER TOUR DATES, VIDEO FEAT. RIP TORN
They Might Be Giants released their new album, Join Us, this summer through Idlewild/Rounder Records. Join Us finds the Brooklyn originals returning to rock and to their singular sensibility that made them an instant phenomenon in the world of alternative rock. In the many months spent making and then promoting the album, the band recorded several new tracks, not all of which made it onto the album.

The band has compiled the best of these recordings to create a brand new full-length, made up of rarities and many previously unheard tracks. The resulting record is titled Album Raises New and Troubling Questions and will be released via Amazon and iTunes November 1 through Idlewild Recordings.
If you haven't had a chance to view the "Can't Keep Johnny Down" video the band released last week, watch the cinematic behemoth featuring Rip Torn as a hot sauce chugging, bare-knuckled street fighter below.
