29 JULY 2014 (Toronto, ON) – Today TV On the Radio announce their new album Seeds, coming this fall on Harvest Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Vocalist Tunde Adebimpe says: "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." Their last album, Nine Types of Light, was deemed “pure heaven” by Rolling Stone, earning the band a Grammy® nomination, and garnering the "Universal Acclaim" rating of 82 at Metacritic. Prior to that, TV On the Radio’s Dear Science was voted #1 by fans in Pitchfork’s Reader’s Poll and the #1 album in the Village Voice’s Pazz and Jop poll, composed of reviews by more than 800 critics. Following the love the records received, the band went on to grace the stages of Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report.  Earlier records, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes and Return To Cookie Mountain stole the hearts of fans and critics alike just the same, winning the Shortlist Music Prize and Spin’s Album of the Year respectively. Last September, TV On the Radio released two tracks, Mercy and Million Miles, through guitarist David Sitek’s Federal Prism label. NPR would declare these “lush and dreamy,” and the singles proved just enough to tide the world over til the autumn release of Seeds.

Seeds was recorded at Federal Prism in Los Angeles and produced by guitarist David Andrew Sitek. TV On the Radio have USA tour dates scheduled this fall, with Canadian dates to be announced.
