They Might Be Giants announce new LP Why?, upcoming dates, and an updated list of countries with changed-names

Better hold on to somethin’, all you aging “alt rock” parents, hapless little kids of those parents, and whimsical carnival folk out there! Because not only are the legendary They Might Be Giants (a.k.a. “Brooklyn’s Original Animal Collective”) STILL A THING, but they’re about to release their second new album of weird, fun, ya-know… “alternative music” of 2015 and embark on a giant, goofy, pastel-colored ticker-tape parade of these United States to celebrate! Hooray? Hooray!

Coming fresh on the heels of this year’s Glean, the new album is called Why? and hits the streets like an ill-prepared trapeze artist on November 27 via their own Idlewild Records label. Heck, you can even pre-order the CD/digital album and all its accompanying swag — including t-shirts and yo-yos (seriously) — right now (unless you’re one of those hapless little kids, in which case you might not have a credit card).

Oh, and don’t forget that this venerable CIRCUS of a rock band, ya know, IS STILL RELEASING A NEW SONG AND VIDEO EVERY SINGLE FREAKIN’ WEEK this year through their Dial-A-Song project, available toll-free via phone at (844) 387-6962 and at, um, DialASong.com. No big deal. All in a day’s work under the Big Top.
