TV on the Radio | Extends Fall Tour, Album Details

TV on the Radio A few weeks back, Justin posted some news about TV on the Radio‘s upcoming fall tour. I remember reading the post and thinking that it was short tour considering TVOTR has an album release in the near future. Well, my intuition was spot on and they’ve extended their tour well into the autumn months. The tour extends into November now and hits all over, including Chicago — which is good for me.

TVOTR’s new album details have been announced as well. Dear Science, will drop on September 23rd and quite frankly I am nothing but excited. The first single from the album, “Golden Age”, is streaming on the website right now — just click that gold, underlined TV on the Radio above. Its been on repeat for twenty minutes over here and I must say that its great. It seems that My Morning Jacket isn’t the only band channeling everyone’s favorite 50 year old gender bender (that’s Prince to you).

The anticipation surrounding Dear Science, is big. TVOTR’s outstanding sophomore LP, Return to Cookie Mountain, is one of my top albums made this decade and Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babies is a raw, hard charging debut. However difficult it is to produce three unique and artistic albums in a row I have full faith in David Sitek’s production and the rest of the band’s abilities. Follow the jump for dates.


I last saw TVOTR during their run with Thievery Corporation on the Outernational Tour. Their set was really strong and the sound definitely transitioned into the larger setting. Yet, seeing them in a theater as a headliner is something that I am very, very excited about.
