After catching TV On The Radio rock the beautiful Kings Theatre just a few days before, I once again caught up with the Brooklyn rockers at Boston Calling last May.

The festival setting allowed the guys to trim the set to something more of a greatest hits set, starting with “Young Liars” and closing with “Staring At The Sun.” When you get to fill in the rest of a set with “DLZ,” “Dancing Choose,”” and “Wolf Like Me,” you’re in business.

On May 20 TV On The Radio made their return to New York for a performance at the beautiful Kings Theatre, right up there with Baby’s All Right as my favorite new venues in New York. The show was the first of two for them in the city last week, with a night at Terminal 5 in Manhattan coming the following night.

The show came in support of their 2014 album Seeds, and was much different from when I saw them last winter at a much smaller performance at at Music Hall of Williamsburg. No matter, as the group filled out the much larger Kings Theatre with the level of finesse and intensity that you come to expect from the talented group.

TV On The Radio Announce New Album: ‘Seeds’

This fall TV On The Radio will return with a new album titled Seeds, set for release on Harvest Records. The album was recorded at Federal Prism in Los Angeles and produced by the band’s very own Dave Sitek.

They’ve been playing some new material live, including at their Governors Ball set this year, which I caught.

Here’s what vocalist Tunde Adebimpe had to say about the album:

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, 1000%, without a doubt, the best thing we’ve ever done.”

The announcement came with a 25-second teaser video, which you can find below.

If you saw the 2008 film Rachel Getting Married you may remember TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe making an appearance. That wasn’t just a one time deal, it looks like he’s a part time actor for real now. He’s been cast in a new movie called Nasty Baby that will co-star him with Kristin Wiig and the film’s director, Sebastián Silva. Read more about the casting news over at Filmtastic.

TV On The Radio
have returned with a strong new single titled “Mercy” that they teased earlier on instagram. The song wastes no time kicking into full gear, showcasing a vicious guitar riff and a sense of urgency. It has that fuzzy nature of their earlier stuff that we all fell in love it.

They gave it to Huff Post Entertainment to premiere, and it signals their return to music. There’s no plans for a full LP yet, but it’s their first outing on Dave Sitek’s label, Federal Prism.

“Mercy” hits really hard, not slowing down or waiting for you to get with it. TV On The Radio are freaking back folks. In a big, big, way.
