Longtime Brooklynites They Might Be Giants have put this finishing touches on their new "adult" album which will be out early next year. To go with that LP, the band are going on a very long tour that begins February 27 in Portland, ME and hits just about everywhere in North America... except NYC. Of course that's because they're already playing three New Year's shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The 12/29 and 12/31 shows are sold-out but you can still get tickets to the 12/30 show.

The new dates do include NY shows though: 3/21 @ Tarrytown Music Hall, and 3/22 in Huntington, NY @ The Paramount. Tickets to the Long Island show go on venue pre-sale starting 10am on Wednesday, Nov. 14. Password = "PULSE". General sale begins Friday, Nov. 16. All tour dates are listed below.

Speaking of holidays, if you know a TMGB fan (or are one) and don't know what to get him this season, John & John have the answer: the new Holiday Bundle which includes the new DVD compilation Them Ain't Big Eye Ants, a set of "Paranormal, Cryptids, Hoaxes and Myths" playing cards, a travel mug, reprints of some classic '80s show flyers, a t-shirt and more. The DVD includes a nifty electronic rendition of "Istambul (Not Constantinople)" which you can watch below.
