Get those treadmills out of storage, everyone! By the time this Ok Go show has come and gone, we’re all going to be reenacting that infamous treadmill dance until somebody loses a digit. But anyway, the quartet, originally from Chicago, has been keeping busy since breaking out in 2006 with hits like “Here It Goes Again” (along with the above referenced video). On Oct. 14, the band will release its fourth studio album, Hungry Ghosts, of which the debut single, “The Writing’s on The Wall” (note: not a song-by-song response to Destiny’s Child), has already attained chart-topping status. Best of all is the continued commitment to live shows and touring, which, this year, includes a stop for us West Coast Michiganders. What’s next for the boys? We have one guess: to infinity, and beyond. And that’s perhaps a bit of an understatement.
