To celebrate Flood‘s 25th anniversary, They Might Be Giants is giving fans a treat: Right now, the rock duo is offering a live version of the album for free download on their website.

The album was recorded over a span of multiple shows in Australia, a place they recently discovered has a large fanbase. “Last year, we toured Australia for the first time in a long time,” John Flansburgh, one-half of the band, told Yahoo! Music. “It was a miniature Pixies experience, when all of a sudden we found out we were much more popular in our absence from the Australian scene than we thought we were.”

Flansburgh and John Linnell (They Might Be Giants’ other half) released Flood in 1990, and the album went on to be certified platinum. “Flood was the landmark album for our public profile, and for a lot of people, it’s the only thing they know by us,” Flansburgh told Yahoo! Music. “So for us, playing the whole album in concert is a little bit of a Trojan horse … the whole album is really a gateway experience to They Might Be Giants.”

Aside from the album release, They Might Be Giants has also been releasing a new track per week via their Dial-A-Song project. Fans can call 844-387-6962 to hear the songs—and if that’s not enough, they’re also releasing a brand-new album titled Glean April 21.
