We’re pleased to present a brand new, interactive behind-the-scenes website for the video for The Writing’s On the Wall! It’s got a map of the entire warehouse space, dozens of new and exclusive behind-the-scenes videos, and a bunch of factoids about the shoot process. Check it out here.
The video for our new single, “The Writing’s On the Wall” is live today. You can watch it righhhhhhht here:
Hungry Ghosts, the first new OK Go studio album in four years, is making its spooked way to your heart this October. Want to hear a sample of every song and see a bunch of footage from the studio? Well ok:
Even better, Hungry Ghosts is available for pre-order via Pledge Music now now now, with a free four-song sampler EP (Upside Out) coming in June to tide you over until haunting season.
This is not a drill and this is not a fundraising exercise. Hungry Ghosts is completely done and is only a few brief steps from human consumption, give or take the black magic required to finish a rock and roll record. We’re running a Pledge Music campaign simply because we’ve got an overflowing bushel of insane exclusives that we want to offer to you, and their platform seemed like the best way to deliver on all that crazy.
So head over to Pledge Music to sign yourself up for signed vinyl, handwritten lyrics, and the other goodies you’ve come to expect from such offers, plus tour bus rides, caricatures by Dan, outgoing voicemails by Tim, a night out with Damian, custom synthesizers, a virtual visit to the OK Go Academy, a personalized song (or dance! or documentary!) about you, and some further craziness that we can’t even announce yet. All tour-related prizes are immediately applicable to the band’s summer tour dates.
PS. Don’t worry, if you pledge early and we announce something you prefer down the line. You’re welcome to change your choice at any time.
The band’s new album, Hungry Ghosts, isn’t floating into the world ’til fall, but what’s summer without some fresh jams? The Upside Out EP, out on June 17th as a digital download via Paracadute, features four fresh OK Go tunes selected from Hungry Ghosts especially for warm air and beach days.
Pre-order Hungry Ghosts now, and get a free download of Upside Out right now. With tracks produced by longtime collaborator Dave Fridmann and new partner Tony Hoffer, it’s OK Go like you’ve never heard them before, widescreen blockbusters for the ear, mind, ass, and soul.
You read right: tour. The guys hit the road this summer and fall for their first extended jaunt on our nation’s highways in quite some time. Even better, they’re coming armed with an all-new live show filled with, well, we’re not allowed to tell you yet. But suffice to say it is unlike anything they’ve done live so far.
And if you don’t live in any of the places below, have no fear, it’s going to be a busy few years. We are just getting started.
