New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 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. Today, the alternative rock legends share an early stream of new album track "All Time What" due out this Friday Jan 5, with Consequence of Sound alongside the witty "10 Fake Things I Love" feature. "All Time What" is available to post/share HERE.

It is hardly a secret that They Might Be Giants' delivers one of the liveliest shows around, and I Like Fun accomplishes the rare feat of capturing that ecstatic intensity. 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. Full list of dates here & below.

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. 1st place winner receives $3000. 2nd and 3rd place winners each receive $1000. All 3 winners will get a suite of free software from Red Giant. All judging will be done by the great Open Mike Eagle. Full details here.

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!
