Exclusive: TV on the Radio’s SPIN Photo Shoot

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.
