The Fray Keep Touring, Ok Go!

Piano rockers The Fray are ready to melt your hearts while also inciting you to dance. What else could you expect from their newly announced summer tour featuring Ok Go? Well that's the first leg of it anyway. You second leggers will get to be treated to the docile sounds of Gomez and Eisley, while the third leg will see Meese and an act TBD join Isaac Slade and co.

There is no doubt things are going brilliantly for the Denver-based quartet. Among their recent highlights include double platinum certification for "How to Save A Life," and as if that weren't enough, the LP has become the number 1 selling digital album of all time, having just passed Coldplay's "X&Y." Check TheFray.Net for more.

And for your aural and visual pleasure, here are some Fray goodies to spoil yourselves with:

AOL Sessions

Network Live: The Fray In Concert

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention OK Go, recent Grammy winners for best short-form music video, but then again was there really ever any doubt about this? You can actually hear lead singer Damian Kulash's full acceptance speech by going here.

Finally, finally (really) the ever inventive visual minimalists in OK Go bring you their latest creation, this time for "Do What You Want (Wallpaper Version)". For those of you who have come to love the band's straightforward, quirky, and highly danceable style, you'll love this:
