Exclusive: TV on the Radio's SPIN Photo Shoot
Peter Gaston

Many bands have a rider, a document outlining their backstage needs, from food and beverages to dressing room temperature levels. At their Nov. 4 cover shoot for SPIN, TV on the Radio's request was singular and simple: televisions, so they could watch the presidential election results roll in. Check out our video montage from that shoot below, and watch the band rush from the set to the flatscreen to toast Barack Obama's victory.
