TV on The Radio at Stubb's during SXSW (more by Graeme Flegenheimer)
TV on The Radio

TV on The Radio's new LP Nine Types of Light is officially out on April 12th. The LP comes in various incarnations, including the deluxe version which comes with a companion film for the LP. You can pre-order now, and stream samples of the album below (or in full if you're overseas). Movie trailer down there too.

And naturally, since they have a new album to promote, TV on the Radio kick off a North American tour this week. Tickets are still available for their big April 13th show at Radio City Music Hall with Light Asylum. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 8th at noon for a new TV on the Radio show at the much smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 12th! (there will also be a presale on Wednesday for this release-day show). We have a pair of tickets to the Brooklyn show you can try to win too.

Contest details, all tour dates, the album stream, film trailer and a video, below...

^^^Thanks, that works for the regular on-sale. BV, you have more pre-sale info?

Posted by Scott | April 5, 2011 10:52 AM

"TRYING TO FIND A REASON TO LIVE IN A POST-LCD WORLD..."

Perhaps base jumping w/o a parachute? There are several good bridges in the New York area. Quite popular - but not as popular as LCD so it might not be trendy enough for you.

Are we going to talk about LCD forever? Let it die.

TUNDE...you are my reason to live in a post LCD world however, that LCD show was probably the best thing I've witnessed in my life!

LCD REIGNS SUPREME!!!! JAMES MURPHY 4 PREZ!!

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 11:20 AM

@ 11:18 Or, maybe he/she listened to the stream IN THIS VERY POST.

Dumbass.

For the record, the new album is fantastic.

Posted by Scott | April 5, 2011 11:24 AM

I know this is kind off topic (7.5 inches, yeah yeah, etc.) but is anyone else surprised they haven't added a second Arctic Monkeys show or Florence & The Machine show.

Bowery Presents seems all about adding the multiple nights to make more money at the bar (and sell more tickets on the secondary market).

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 11:34 AM

Scott needs some hummus.
Why is he getting pissed at 1118.

What a dumbass!

Yea let's listen two songs and say an album is great.

Yea you're a dumbass for sure.

Scott is a TVOTR junkie that just needs his fix. Who is everyone else to question his addiction?

P.S. Chill out, Scott. Go hang out with Frohawk for a while and be chill by association.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 11:52 AM

torrented the album, its fantastic. cant wait for Radio City.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 12:08 PM

why would they add a show when the radio city show hasn't sold out yet?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 12:15 PM

In addition to "What's Going On (x) day?" will there also be a "What's frohawk up to today?" post integrated into the site?

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 12:20 PM

I heard that James Murphy conceived Kyp Malone.

I like LCD, but 10:54 is right on. And it applies to more than just the people who make "those" comments.

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 12:30 PM

12:30, no referring to previous comments you wrote yourself

Posted by Anonymous | April 5, 2011 12:34 PM

No worries, I've already recommended the Williamsburg Bridge for you (how fitting!).
