They Might Be Giants news

This year, They Might Be Giants have three albums slated for release (two in 2015, one in 2016), national and international touring across the world and the return of Dial-A-Song for the digital age.

Now, for all of 2015, the Brooklyn duo return to their high concept/no budget idea with a toll free number at (844) 387-6962 as well as via the web at Fans can hear the songs streaming on the site, and YouTube. Those that prefer a download can purchase tracks individually at iTunes, and all other digital retailers or join the band’s Dial-A-Song Direct service on and get the whole year's worth of tracks for $30.

In celebration of the reactivated Dial-A-Song and to raise awareness of “Erase”, They Might Be Giants are sponsoring Dial-A-Song’s first video contest, challenging all video, film and visually minded people to create a video companion for the track by April 7.

Judged by Black Francis of The Pixies, three winners will be awarded a $1000 cash prize in addition to having their video posted on and TMBG’s YouTube channel. The possibilities are endless and the Giants encourage competitors to “Express yourself in your favorite medium,” keeping in mind all imagery must be original.

They Might Be Giants celebrate Brooklyn and keep the home fires burning with a monthly stand at Music Hall of Williamsburg, beginning with their sold-out show this Sunday, Jan. 25. 

Known for recording numerous themes most notably The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and the Grammy-winning Malcolm In the Middle theme, the band has two platinum and gold albums, plus two Grammys to their credit.
