My Morning Jacket Take Over YouTube’s Homepage

Louisville, Kentucky’s My Morning Jacket take over YouTube today with 4 clips featured on the site’s homepage, including the premiere of the eye-popping, surreal video for “Holdin On To Black Metal.”  The guys gave a early preview of the video  last night when several members posted it on their Google+ accounts, resulting in one of the first music video premieres shared within Google's new social network.

Fans can also check out a special intro to the video, which is also an invite to catch the group live at Lollapalooza this weekend (set time is 8pm EDT this Saturday, August 6th).  Additionally My Morning Jacket have curated a playlist of 18 videos of some of their favorite musical moments by artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Nicks, and Loretta Lynn.

The video for “Black Metal” was filmed during whirlwind period shortly before the quintent’s new album, Circuital, was released while the band was getting ready for their big hometown show (filmed by Todd Haynes for AmEx’s Unstaged series.)  The band kept things local by working with the Louisville-based Sole Solution Studio for the clip, and filmed it at the idiosyncratic local watering hole Jim Porter’s Good Time Emporium.  The video also includes footage from the Jacket’s electrifying 2011 Bonnaroo performance.  The guys kick off the next leg of their US tour tonight in St. Louis and will play select dates with Neko Case as the opener during August.
