TAS Interview (SXSW): TV On The Radio

TV On The Radio arrived at Austin's SXSW without bassist Gerard Smith, who is in the midst of cancer treatment, but the group managed to soldier on at the festival with a few gigs at Stubb's and the Mohawk, unveiling songs from their new album, Nine Types of Light, which is due out on April 12. The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali caught up with Tunde Adebimpe, Kyp Malone and Jaleel Bunton (who took on bass duties in Smith's absence) for a brief chat.

The band kicks off their North American tour in Philadelphia on April 8 and arrive in New York on April 13 for a big gig at Radio City Music Hall with LIght Asylum opening. Tickets are still available.

The Alternate Side is a proud part of WFUV Public Radio from Fordham University,
