The previously-reported Sept. 1 release date for They Might Be Giants' Here Comes Science CD/DVD set does come with a caveat, apparently -- that date is for an Amazon.com/iTunes-exclusive ("dual-exclusive"?) release. The full-scale release isn't set for until Sept. 22. I know, I know, those seem like pretty big exclusives, like premiering a movie only in California, New York, and Illinois. But now you know that your local Sam Goody won't have it available for $22.99 until Sept. 22.
You also know (assuming you finish this paragraph) that the band will indeed be adding new videos to their popular "They Might Be Giants Family Video Podcast" in August 2009. Good times with surreal handpuppets, or will John and John find a new medium for the new release?
