Two-time Grammy winners They Might Be Giants had a big breakthough with their 1990 album Flood, which turns 30 next year.

In honor of the album that made them an international act, the band will perform the release in its entirety in select cities. The group will play two full sets with its live band featuring Curt Ramm on trumpet. The tour comes to the Beachland Ballroom on May 12.

Earlier this year, TMBG gave us one more reason to like them. The band released a special limited edition benefit T-shirt with 100 percent of the profits going to RAICES, a Texas legal team aiding separated families and detained minors seeking asylum in the U.S. With the assistance of Jeff Lawson, the founder of Twilio who offered to match any funds raised by the band, the group raised a total of $200,000.

Tickets to the Beachland show go on sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
