Throughout their 30 year collaboration, They Might Be Giants have released a total of 15 studio albums, 13 compilations, 7 live performance albums, 18 EPs, 5 videos and 6 singles. In addition to their very impressive career, The Brooklyn, New York based alternative rock band managed to release two albums in one year. Their 15th studio album Join Us was released in July 2011, and following up with their release of a compilation album titled Album Raises New and Troubling Questions shortly after.
In November 2011, the band stopped by Amoeba Music store in San Francisco as a celebratory performance for releasing two albums in one year. With their 8 songs and 22 minute set list, the long standing band was surrounded by music posters, vinyls and flash photographing fans. Playing a combination of rarities from their compilation album, some past favorites and quirky transitions into their tunes, it doesn’t appear that They Might Be Giants are zoning down anytime soon. The band is currently hard at work on their upcoming set of album releases as well as some other surprises they have in store for fans old and new. You can expect to see their releases later this year and sometime early next year.
You can also see their rollicking performance on the record’s store recent posting to their website. Or, right here.
