They Might Be Giants On Tour Through Fall, Perform LIVE On ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Brooklyn’s original alternative rockers, They Might Be Giants, have made a valiant return to the US after their recent stint though Australia and New Zealand. The band will take over North American stages once again on a massive 35-date tour in support of their deliriously catchy new studio album, Nanobots. The tour includes a “Celebrate Brooklyn” hometown show as well as stops in Los Angeles, Des Moines, Kansas City, Boise, Seattle, DC & Vancouver.


Fans that are not able to make it out to a show can experience the band’s explosive live rendition of their hit “Istanbul” on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Nanobots features 45 memorable minutes of electrifying pop melodies, vivid lyrics and just enough bass-clarinet. Check out the trippy, animated video for single “Insect Hospital +” by Hine Mizushima HERE.

Nanobots is available at all digital & physical retailers via Idlewild Recordings, and marks the debut offering through the band’s new distributor Megaforce Records. 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 2 platinum albums, 2 gold albums and have been nominated for 3 GRAMMYs, winning two. Revered for their energized live show and love of the road, catch the band live on tour!
