They Might Be Giants have announced that they will be returning to the UK for a string of dates in January and February 2016. The group’s last full-band show in the UK was a sold-out Shepherd’s Bush Empire in late 2013. However, the band, performing as a trio, did perform a one-off in-store show at Rough Trade East this July, following radio appearances on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music, Absolute Radio, BBC London, and more. You can see a full list of upcoming dates below.
They Might Be Giants also revitalized their notorious innovation, Dial-A-Song, this year. With a new song posted weekly, the return of Dial-A-Song in online form has showcased songs of exceptionally high level of quality, as well as an accompanying video. Following the release of Glean earlier this year, the band are expected to announce details of the follow-up full-length very soon.
