Today marks the release of Electric Guest's debut full length, Mondo, out courtesy of Downtown Records. Yesterday MTV premiered the video for their single, "This Head I Hold", which was directed by Keith Schofield and features lead singer Asa Taccone in a rather random chain of events while at a dance audition. It's hard to say if the dramatic sequence spliced in after his apparent stage fright is supposed to be a dream or reality, but we'll leave that for you to decide.
Next week on May 4th the band will make their network TV debut on The Late Show With David Letterman, performing the above single. The band is also currently on the second half of their tour and have just recently confirmed sets at summer fests like Sasquatch and Outside Lands. You can check out their remaining dates below.
If you have not heard and subsequently picked up Mondo yet, make sure that you do so. It's becoming one of our favorites of the year so far.
