While on tour in Amsterdam last week, Unknown Mortal Orchestra stopped by the DWDD talkshow. The band performed “Opposite of Afternoon” for the live audience. Check out Ruban with an acoustic guitar – something we’ve really only seen him do for sit-down sessions. Cool! Watch above. Head HERE to stream the band playing “Swim and Sleep (Like A Shark).”
Another day, another video! Here’s a new piece for Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s “From The Sun.” You know you’re in for something stellar/dark/bending with a director like Rick Alverson on board. Watch above or at Noisey.
It’s no surprise this band has a million upcoming tour dates. Catch them at a number of festivals and venues starting this summer and through the end of the year.
What makes a remix even better? New tour dates, of course. UMO has extended what is making itself out to be a year-long tour, with shows going into September and October. You’ll find the new dates below.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra brings you an acoustic version of “So Good At Being In Trouble.” Recorded for The Line of Best Fit back in February, the track takes a laid back turn, but still encompasses a serious bite. You can watch the session above.
Since their May shows have sold out, UMO have just announced they will return to the UK later this year. You can see them at London’s Electric Ballroom on November 7th and Manchester’s Gorilla the following day. See all of their upcoming dates HERE.
