New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Oh my god, They Might Be Giants is underrated. That's the best band of all time. Better than the Stones, better than the Beatles, better than Oasis, and better than Crosby, Stills and Nash." - Open Mike Eagle, Pitchfork "Over/Under"
"The crowd's enthusiasm for the fresh material is unmatched even when the band proffers what is perhaps their most-loved song, "Birdhouse in Your Soul"… " - Rolling Stone
"Now a band for 30 years, John Linnell and John Flansburgh are one of rock's all-time most quixotic successes" - SPIN
"Perfect pop music can come from anywhere and can go anywhere. They Might Be Giants have demonstrated this for a quarter century…" - The New Yorker
"Catch them if you can — their live shows always deliver." - USA Today

They Might Be Giants has announced the release of I Like Fun, a remarkable 15-track album, available physically and digitally on January 19, 2018. I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling point of view of these Brooklyn originals. Songwriters and band founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh draw on themes of dread, death, and disappointment and set them to their driving, hyper-melodic music. Fresh and sonically adventurous, the band's command of the studio and the song is in rare form from beginning to end. Album closer "Last Wave" is a deceivingly upbeat track that leaves you with a pit in your stomach by, as Linnell points out, "reminding you of your darkest fears."

The group enjoys a reputation for delivering one of the liveliest shows around, and the album accomplishes the rare feat of capturing that ecstatic intensity on disc. The band will take over stages with an energized live show across the globe in 2018. The album's release coincides with a world tour that kicks off with a fifty-city trek across the US, then on to Europe, and beyond.

TMBG has launched a fan video contest for lead album single "I Left My Body." All entries to be submitted by March 1, 2018. Winners will be announced shortly after that and the winning video will be posted on dialasong.com as well as TMBG's YouTube channel. All judging will be done by the great Open Mike Eagle.

On I Like Fun, the spotlight is also on the band's formidable long-standing live lineup; drummer Marty Beller, bassist Danny Weinkauf and lead guitarist Dan Miller. Co-produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, Donald Fagen, The National, Mary J. Blige), the album was tracked and mixed at the brand-new Reservoir Studios—site of the legendary Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded their platinum-selling album Flood.

2018 will also see the return of TMBG's Dial-A-Song service, with weekly installments toll free at (844) 387-6962, www.dialasong.com, and on streaming sites everywhere, featuring new music all year long!
