TV on the Radio announce NYC tour dates, share new single

It's been a hot minute since the last TV on the Radio album—okay, three years, actually. So we're more than a smidgeon excited that the band is releasing its newie, Seeds, on November 18. The tour kicks off on the West Coast, winding up in TVOTR's hometown NYC for the album's release date—meaning that we get the best parties. Hurrah! Those NYC dates in full: Tue Nov 18 at the Apollo, Fri Nov 21 and Sat Nov 22 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The album's first single, Happy Idiot, went up today and you can soak up its brisk, breakup song goodness in the lyric video above.Those thirsty for more would do well to check out our TV on the Radio interview from the time of its Nine Types of Light album, and serious TVOTR nerds can get busy with this uncut Q&A, in which Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone talk love, death and witchcraft.
