Just because OK Go has created yet another awesome music video doesn’t mean they can rest on their laurels. In fact, fellas, it’s time to get out and show the U.S. some of that sweet new album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, which is just what the band plans to do come April.

The Los Angeles based outfit kicks things off on April 13th in Salt Lake City, UT and tours rather steadily through the U.S. (including some gigs north of the border). They’ll hit some festivals (Hangout and Sasquatch included) and wrap it all up on June 11th at Bonnaroo. In case you haven’t heard the album, singer Damian Kulash said the band is merely exploring their influences, so don’t call it a change of direction.

“It’s not so much that we headed in a new direction,” Kulash said in a press statement. “I think we’ve just expended the guitar-rock ideas from our teens and we’re starting to get at more root-level influences.”

Joining the band for the tour will be Earl Greyhound, a Brooklyn trio known for a colossal rock sound and who will be touring in support of their sophomore release, Suspicious Package.

Tickets will be on sale at Ticketmaster.com.
