'Nine Types Of Light' due in September

TV On The Radio are set to return with their new album 'Nine Types Of Light' this September.

A truly groundbreaking group, TV On The Radio finally found acceptance with their 2008 album 'Dear Science'. A pulverising release, it mixed some fantastic songwriting with a slew of new ideas.

Touring across the globe, the band decided to take time off. Various members began solo projects, with singer Kyp Malone being amongst the most active. Dave Sitek has a sideline in production, but was forced to move his Williamsburg studio due to escalating rents in the local area.

Keeping silent on the issue a return, TV On The Radio have now broken cover. The band are due to return with their new studio album 'Nine Types Of Light' later this year, with Interscope again handling the release.

Little is yet known about the album, which will end a three year silence. Given the huge leaps between genres that the band are capable of, it is anyone's guess as to how the new album will sound.

'Nine Types Of Light' is due to be released in April, with some live dates planned. TV On The Radio have remained guarded as to the full details, although they have confirmed one New York show.

So far remaining lonely on the tour date list, TV On The Radio have confirmed a performance at the Radio City Music Hall on April 13th. Full tickets details are yet to be announced.

A stunning live act, TV On The Radio last hit the UK back in the summer of 2009. Going on hiatus, a few British shows would nice... guys?

There we have it. A new album, a solitary Stateside tour date - anyone else excited? Cos we are.

TV On The Radio are set to release 'Nine Types Of Light' on April.
