They Might Be Giants are set to release their new LP Join Us on July 19th via the band's own Idewild Records (an imprint of Rounder). The 18-track album was recorded over the span of nine months in New York City with producer Patrick Dillett.

They'll keep busy this summer by playing a bunch of scattered dates and festivals, before kicking off a proper tour in September. Said tour, will be a massive one, stretching through the month of November.

They'll hit Chicago on September 23rd to play the Riv. Tickets are still available.

The band recently visited the A.V. Club in Chicago to take part in their Undercover Series. They chose to play the Chumbawamba classic "Tubthumping", enlisting A.V. Club staff as backup singers.
