TMBG on DeKalb Avenue

JF: Here is a photo from an early photo session. The space we’re in was the apartment JL and I shared on DeKalb Ave. Much of the early recordings we created to back us up for the original show up thru the first album were created here. Noise was not an issue!

The making of our new album begins at the studio where Flood was created

Things have been impossibly busy here in TMBGland. A couple of weeks back we formally embarked on making an album of brand new songs. We are working at Pat Dillett’s new studio space called Reservoir, which is the same magnificent studio space that was formerly Skyline Studios in midtown Manhattan in  where we first met Pat lo those many years ago and our major label debut album Flood.

Of course it brings back wonderful memories, but it also brings out fantastic sound (the big room is a magnificent wooden space, and the Neve console was acquired from Herbie Hancock’s studio–he made Rockit on it!). We spent last Tuesday recording the full band and knocked out four tracks, which felt like a lot even for us. Working titles are Mrs. Bluebeard, An Insult to the Fact Checkers, All Time What and When the Lights Come On. When will we be done? Who knows.

Watch this space!

Huzzah for the March for Science!

Thanks to all the people around the WORLD who made yesterday such a big event. It was our honor facilitating the raising over forty thousand dollars for the March for Science with the Science is Real t-shirt. Meanwhile this now historic object is still here at http://theymightbegiants.merchdirect.com and we guarantee all future proceeds will go directly to box truck rental, rehearsal studios and sandwiches for the band…

A free TMBG concert for all ages in Central Park

This is a big show, so bring everyone you know! It is totally free, first come first serve right in the heart of Central Park. We will be performing many of our songs related to science, some kids songs and all the favorites from across our entire impossibly too long career. There will be no swearing, but it is a rock show so you’ve been warned!

A big day out for all!

Free show in NYC on Aug 12th

Our new album making begins at the studio where we made Flood.

Things have been impossibly busy here in TMBGland as just last Monday we have formally embarked on making an album of brand new songs. We are working at Pat Dillett’s new studio space which is the same magnificent studio space that was Skyline Studios in midtown Manhattan where we recorded Flood.

Of course it brings back wonderful memories, but it also brings out fantastic sound (the big room is a magnificent wooden space,
and the Neve console was acquired from Herbie Hancock’s studio–he made Rockit on it!). We spent last Tuesday recording the full band and knocked out four tracks, which felt like a lot even for us. Working titles are Mrs. Bluebeard, An Insult to the Fact Checkers, All Time What and When the Lights Come On. When will we be done? Who knows.
