They Might Be Giants Release New LP, Tour

Indie-rock vets They Might Be Giants released their 15th studio album, Join Us, back in May to positive reviews. Excluding their children’s albums (Here Come the 123s and Here Comes Science) it was their first full-length since 2007’s The Else. That semi-hiatus apparently gave the Brooklyn-based group plenty of time for extra material. They compiled the album’s unreleased tracks on the newly released Album Raises New and Troubling Questions. Included are live performances of “Cloisonné” and “Tubthumping”, as well as five bonus videos (which you can view here).

They Might Be Giants are also touring throughout the fall and winter. Click below for the dates:
