TV On The Radio Embark On U.S. Tour

TV On The Radio are carrying on New York City’s avant-garde tradition with their eclectic brand of experimental art rock, which incorporates elements of post-punk, doo-wop, jazz and more.

Their Young Liars EP kicked off a firestorm of hype last summer, and they’ve dropped a stick of dynamite in the buzzbin with their debut full-length, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes.

They’re looking to keep the talkers talking and win some new fans with a nationwide tour this spring. They just kicked off in New York City and they’ll be art-rocking their way to California and back, finishing up May 13 at Supreme Imperial in Boston.

The band consists of Tunde Adepimbe, David Sitek and Kyp Malone, and their live performances often feature a guest rhythm section. Adepimbe and Sitek, both visual artists, met in their apartment building and discovered an affinity for pushing musical boundaries, adding Malone soon after.

The group has strong connections with other hot New Yorkers – Adepimbe created the video for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Pin,” and Sitek has produced albums by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Liars. Several members of those bands have reciprocated by appearing live and on tape with TV On The Radio.
