LOS ANGELES, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Welcome home, OK Go! The band returns this week from a month-long UK tour to the good news that the video for their latest hit single, "Here It Goes Again," is currently the #1 most-played video on MTV and VH1. The video has been #1 on iTunes' US video music chart for the past four weeks and it's also a huge hit in the UK, where it's the #1 video on iTunes and the #2 video at MTV2. OK Go will headline an extensive North American tour that commences on October 7th with a special free show at Ann Arbor's Pontiac Garage Stage before the University of Michigan vs. Michigan State football game. While on the West Coast, the band will perform on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on November 7th. After the tour concludes, OK Go will open for Death Cab For Cutie on a series of shows in late November. "Here It Goes Again" is a multi-format radio smash and digital single sales are approaching 400,000 copies. The accompanying video, which features the band doing a synchronized treadmill routine, has been viewed over 8 million times already on youtube.com, where it ranked as one of YouTube's Top 10 videos of all time after only two weeks. It's in Big 10 rotation at MTV, and has been added by FUSE and mtvU. OK Go was recently nominated for an MTV Europe Music Award for the video for their previous single, "A Million Ways." The MTV Europe Music Awards will be held November 2nd in Copenhagen, Denmark. The video, which simply features the band members dancing in their backyard, created a viral sensation documented by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post and others, as fans worldwide posted their own versions of the dance on YouTube.com. OK Go's original version ranks as the most downloaded video in music history. "Here It Goes Again" and "A Million Ways" are both from OK Go's Oh No, which topped Billboard's Heatseekers chart again on the first anniversary of its release (It debuted at #1 on September 4, 2005). While maintaining an extraordinary online presence over the past year, the band has also toured incessantly and appeared on numerous television shows, including "Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Good Morning America," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and Fox's "MAD TV." "Invincible," another album track, has been tapped by ABC as one of two theme songs for its "Saturday Night Football."
