TV On The Radio For Tripod

This is the gig news I've been waiting months to hear: TV On The Radio are set to play Tripod on November 15th as part of the Heineken Green Synergy festival. I'll admit I was getting a tad nervous as the band announced UK tour dates on Monday, an announcement which would usually go hand in hand with that of any Irish dates, and I was very close to Ryanairing it over for a London or Manchester show. So now there's no need, woo hoo! My wallet can breathe a sigh of relief.

The band's new album Dear Science is currently living in my stereo with no sign of it moving. With my heaping of seriously high expectations on the record, it's somewhat surprising that it has lived up to all of them. Alt-pop at its best, Dear Science is probably TVOTR's best album to date, which is really saying something.

Here's a taste for those who may not have heard it:
