Will Preview Songs From Upcoming Album Produced By Dave Fridmann

OK Go Featured in Dreamworks Film "I Love You, Man"

Grammy-winning rock band OK Go will preview songs from its upcoming album on a bi-coastal headlining tour launching March 6th in Philadelphia, with Irish indie band Oppenheimer and Longwave opening the East Coast dates, IO Echo and Jaguar Love opening the West Coast dates. OK Go has spent the winter holed up in an upstate New York barn-turned-studio with producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Sleater-Kinney), handcrafting what they describe as the "danciest, most anthemic, most heartbroken, and most honest songs" of their career. The band is chronicling the process with an offbeat series of videos at

The upcoming album, due out late summer on Capitol Records, follows up 2005's hit-filled Oh No, which rocketed the band to international fame with major shows on five continents and a series of low-budget homemade videos including "A Million Ways" and "Here It Goes Again" ("the treadmill video") that have been viewed hundreds of millions of times and set all sorts of records.

Their emergence from the studio also sees OK Go play a fictional wedding band in the upcoming Dreamworks film "I Love You, Man" set for release on March 20th and will also be featured in Banana Republic's "City Stories" spring/summer print and web campaign.

In other exciting news, OK Go's friend and collaborator Al "Carnival Time" Johnson recently moved into his new house in New Orleans' Musician's Village. The band donated proceeds from "You Are Not Alone," their 2008 Charity EP to the cause. The EP is available at iTunes, with all proceeds going to help struggling musicians in New Orleans.

Slightly Stoopid - Video Clip, Tour Dates and PR

Fans Can Watch "2am" Exclusively on imeem

Los Angeles, CA - (Tuesday, February 3, 2009) -- Everyone's favorite California Dub Rockers SLIGHTLY STOOPID, are about to unveil their brand new video for their hit single "2am”, from the band's latest full scale studio release “Chronchitis." The colorful "2am" clip is a psychedelic amalgamation of live concert footage, archival footage of drug-related police activity from the 60s and 70s, and tripped-out images of marijuana culture. Starting today, fans around the world can watch the video exclusively on the band's imeem profile at imeem/slightlystoopid

The band also plans for an interactive web based version utilizing the new “hot click” technology which will create additional “pop-ups” of various facts and historical information about the band and various elements contained within the video.

In addition to watching "2am" on imeem, fans can find free streaming playlists, videos and exclusive photos on Stoopid's imeem profile at Using imeem's embeddable playlist widgets, fans can easily share their favorite Slightly Stoopid playlists with friends and embed them on blogs websites and profiles on Facebook, MySpace and other social networking services. imeem is the world's largest social music service with more than 25 million people visiting the site each month.

In the "2am" clip, Slightly Stoopid churns out a stoner's delight of video eye candy that artfully references a nostalgic play on old "Keystone Cops," “Reefer Madness," “Cheech and Chong," “High Times," CNN, and The Fillmore West, and perfectly accompanies the laid back groove of the song. "2am" has been one of the Most Played/Most Requested tracks at alt/radio stations across the country since last Fall, including L.A.'s KROQ-FM, and was awarded "Song of the Year" by San Diego's 91X radio outlet. The clip for “2am” was directed by acclaimed visual effects artist Mark Larranga, who has worked in various capacities on such blockbuster films as "Titanic," "O Brother Where Art Thou," and "Spiderman 1 & 2," has contributed to videos as diverse as those by Jamiroquol and Britney Spears, and whose cutting-edge and stunning visual work has also been seen in a number of television commercials.

The San Diego-based Slightly Stoopid is comprised of members Miles Doughty (guitar, bass, vocals), Kyle McDonald (guitar, bass, vocals), Ryan "RyMo" Moran (drums), Oguer "OG" Ocon (congas, percussion, harp, vocals), DeLa (saxophone), and C-Money (trumpet, keyboard). Signed by the late Bradley Nowell (of Sublime fame) to Skunk Records, the band has subsequently turned down three major label contacts, deciding instead to stay completely independent and maintain control over their music and career. Without the benefit of traditional major label sales and marketing methods, Slightly Stoopid has sold more than a half-million albums, "Chronchitis" debuted at #55 on the Billboard Album Chart, they're selling out tour dates nationwide, and now they've got their own label so they can support other bands who just don't want to go the outdated major label way. For years, Slightly Stoopid has been totally wired in with new technologies and file-sharing and have built a new music model that many other indie bands are now following.
