They Might Be Giants release BOOK this fall and they've just shared a new song from it, the bouncy John Linnell single "I Broke My Own Rule." You can listen to that below.

John and John and the rest of TMBG had plans to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Flood last year on tour, which got interrupted by the pandemic. Dates have been rescheduled to 2022. "We had just a small clutch of Flood shows that had not sold out right before we all entered our worldwide hibernation period, but as they were rescheduled, many tickets returned," says John Flansburgh. "While it was no surprise that some people couldn’t accommodate these shows getting rescheduled, the bulk of these returned tickets evidently came from robo-scalpers and their masters who didn’t care to tie up their hard-grifted money in shows that were so far away from their planned last minute re-selling at gouge-y prices. SO, while the scalping bots are currently too shy to crawl out of Hell to hold these tickets hostage, their loss is our audience's gain as a bunch of shows are now back on sale to the general public."

John continues: "Since our last posting of available shows, a number of big shows have once again “gone clean” as they say in the biz; sold to real live human people by the theater putting on the show at regular face-value pricing, and we are happy about that. As of this moment, some of these shows only have 50 or so tickets left, others have hundreds that have been unceremoniously returned to the theater by the impatient scalper-bots. Either way, we invite all of you to take advantage of this unique moment in time and get in on some shows that would otherwise be sold out by now."

Dates include a whole bunch of Bowery Ballroom shows on March 2, 11, 12, 13, and April 2 all of which are currently sold out out, but that may change. All 2022 dates are listed below.
