TV On The Radio aka TVOTR released the first video from their upcoming Album Seeds a couple weeks back and the the first single, “Happy Idiot” is starting get some traction on alternative/indie rock stations and on Spotify.
Seeds will be the fifth studio album by TV On The Radio, and is scheduled for release on November 18, 2014 on Harvest Records, which is part of Capital Music Group. It will be the band’s first album following the tragic loss of bassist Gerard Smith in 2011.
TVOTR announced the release of the upcoming album back in July and Lead singer Tunde Adebimpe announced in a press release:
We’ve been through a lot of stuff in the past few years that could have stopped the band cold, but I’m glad we got it together and took stock of the unique connection we have between each other because the record is, 1,000 percent, without a doubt, the best thing we’ve ever done.
Since departing from Interscope, the band has had it’s ups and downs. “Happy Idiot” is a punchy single that’s bound to find a huge audience and further the bands cross over appeal between the EDM and indie rocker set.
TVOTR will be kicking off their fall tour on October 17th at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, CA and will be followed by about twenty tour dates. For more information visit Songkick.
