35-years deep, Brooklyn’s freewheeling local heroes They Might Be Giants remain rock's most original perpetual-motion machine; creating startling new music and performing shows packed with spontaneity and undeniable joy across the globe.


TMBG’s brand new show features two big sets including all-time favourites, along with an ever-shifting rotation of fresh rarities spanning their epic career, and spur-of-the-moment
improvisations that will delight even their exhausted road crew. The band recently wrapped up a thrilling run of European dates where they played to ecstatic sold-out crowds, and now they’re bringing their unique sensibility to stages across Australia.


"Oh my god, They Might Be Giants is underrated. That’s the best band of all time. Better than the Stones, better than the Beatles, better than Oasis, and better than Crosby, Stills and Nash."

- Open Mike Eagle, Pitchfork


Sydney and Melbourne fans are in for double-headers, with the band promising two unique nights of music—one pitting their 80s output against the 2010s, and the second their 90s efforts vs. the 00s.

Recently, They Might Be Giants released a new Dial-A-Song video “The Communists Have the Music," created with the animation team lead by David Plunkert, the award-winning illustrator of the notorious The New Yorker Trump/KKK sailboat cover. The track is an instant TMBG classic with the melodic hooks the band is renowned for. Listen to it twice and the song will play on in your head for days.


This year alone the band released their 20th full-length album I Like Fun to rave reviews, played 50 US cities demolishing stages to mostly sold out rooms, was nominated for a Tony award for their song I'm Not A Loser, posted 20+ additional songs on their
Dial-A-Song service, was the featured guest on WTF with Marc Maron, and performed on
CONAN (+ special web-exclusive)!

They Might Be Giants new album I Like Fun is out now via all good record stores and Spotify
