We will be recording a series of musical backdrops—ten or so. Some will just be done spontaneously with the full band. We are looking forward to making a phone message for every Crazy President, one that you will cherish for years.

**We will reach out to you regarding the exact pronunciation of your name. Nicknames and family names are acceptable, but TMBG reserves the right to keep it legit. Seymour Butz and Amanda Huggenkiss need not apply.

EXACTLY WHY WE
PRAISE YOU

Hello TMBG people! They Might Be Giants endures because of the long-term support of you, our audience. A few years back, we embarked on a special year-long project called the Instant Fan Club. Our goals were ambitious: we would create the perfect win-win-win fan-club package, where people got real exclusives as well as crazy value, and in return we’d get to continue our musical careers without kowtowing to outsiders.

While it is no secret that the music industry has crumbled to dust in recent years, we here at They Might Be Giants are soldiering on, comforted by the knowledge that our professional future is secure through the ongoing patronage of the TMBG Instant Fan Club. We gratefully acknowledge the Instant Fan Club’s continued enthusiasm, involvement, loyalty, and support, which allow this band to stay focused on creating new recordings without compromise and performing live shows with world-class production.

Respect!
