[watch] They Might Be Giants//Can’t Keep Johnny Down

They Might Be Giants just released the new video for album single “Can’t Keep Johnny Down”.  The video, which premiered earlier today with New York Magazine, is a cinematic behemoth featuring Rip Torn as a hot sauce chugging, bare-knuckled street fighter. For a taste of the action, watch the new “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” video, directed by Brian and Brad Palmer and produced by Surroud (TV On The Radio, The Drums).

They Might Be Giants new album, Join Us,  was released July 19th through Idlewild/Rounder Records. On Join Us we find the Brooklyn originals have returned to rock with an electrifying mix of clever, maddeningly catchy songwriting and studio mastery. Notorious for their energized live show, They Might Be Giants are on an international tour, hitting 6 countries and over 50 US cities. Be sure to catch TMBG live in your city! [source: girlie action]
