Here They Go Again - OK Go Launches North American Headlining Tour October 7th 'Here It Goes Again' is Most Played Video on MTV & VH1; #1 Video on iTunes

in US & UK; OK Go Perform on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' November 7th



    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."
