3OH!3 are out with the music video to their new single ‘Back To Life’, off the Boulder, Colorado electropop duo’s fourth studio album ‘Omens’, out July 18th on Photo Finish. Watch the Mickey Finnegan directed video below and check out Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte’s upcoming tour dates after the cut.
Gorburger, an alien from outer space, interviewed Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte of 3OH!3 at a Japanese studio that the creature had taken hostage.
Asked about their favorite omens, Sean said, “A dead bird when you’re walking, that’s a bad omen. A full moon is a bad omen.” Nat added, “A piece of human flesh on the floor. That’s a scary one.”
Gorburger then had his best hostage friend Robert try out a machine that ended up electrocuting him, and asked Sean and Nat to help him hide the dead body. After refusing and being creeped out by the alien, they played a lightning round of questions related to Robert and hiding the body.

3OH!3 released a video for their track ‘You’re Gonna Love This’, which features Sean Foreman sitting alongside Nancy Pelosi and behind President Obama as he delivers the State of the Union. Foreman and Nathaniel Motte are set to release their fourth album ‘Omens’ later this year. Watch the clip via YouTube below.
The Boulder, Colorado-based duo 3OH!3’s debut ‘Want’ has been officially certified Gold by the RIAA. ‘Want’ features the hit single ‘Don’t Trust Me’, which reached #1 at Pop radio while also achieving double platinum certification from the RIAA. ‘Don’t Trust Me’ was followed by a second major hit in ‘Starstrukk’, featuring Katy Perry, which was also certified RIAA platinum, pushing ‘Want’ to over 6 million singles sold.
“Thanks to everyone who has listened to our music, bought our records and come to our shows. We have so much fun doing what we do, and we hope to continue to do that for a good time, yet. Who knew getting dumped in 2008 could be such a goddamn kick-start!” exclaimed Nathaniel Motte, one half of the electro pop duo.
Sean Foreman echoed Nathaniel’s sentiments stating, “I was happy when our album went Copper, but all the way to Gold! I am so thankful for the fans of our music and team that helps us get that music out. We are working on our new album and can’t wait to play all these funky new jams for everyone. We have some of the hardest beats we’ve ever worked with (Thanks to Nat). We aren’t afraid to get a little weird on this record. I’m super excited!”
3OH!3 is currently at work in their Colorado studio, writing material for their third release expected to arrive later this year. The group recently put out a series of previously unreleased songs including the track ‘Set You Free’, which is now available on iTunes and can also be streamed via YouTube below.
3OH!3 checked in with fans on their official web site blog on Saturday (December 4), upset about what went down at the 107.9 The End Jingle Ball in Sacramento where the band was on a line-up that included B.O.B., Jesse McCartney and Paramore. While not naming the act that instituted the “price matching” policy on merchandise, the headliner at ARCO Arena was Paramore. 3OH!3 write:
Recently, we have come up against touring policies that we think are unfair, both to bands, and, more importantly, to fans. Last night we were forced to do something called “price matching” at a concert in Sacramento. The practice of “price matching” is unfortunately a fairly common one, and it is fundamentally flawed, in my opinion. What it entails is the standardizing of merchandise prices by a “headlining” band – that is to say that the main act of the night will dictate a price at which the other bands may sell their merchandise. The thinking is that the main acts do not want to be “undercut” by opening bands that may be selling their merchandise at a lower price, and thus offer a more attractive deal to fans. Last night, we were forced to sell our t-shirts for $30, a price that we think was too high based on the ticket prices of the show, and unfair to fans.
In our touring career, we have never asked opening bands to “price match” their merchandise to ours. In our thinking, bands should sell their merchandise at whatever price they wish, and fans should be able to buy that merchandise accordingly. It is unfair to smaller bands to be expected to sell their t-shirts and other goods at the same price of larger bands, especially on our tours, when opening bands have depended fairly heavily on selling merchandise for their total income.

3OH!3 visited 95.9 KISS FM in Green Bay, where Doug and Mary interviewed Nat Motte and Sean Foreman about their height difference, how they had a busy summer tour internationally, liking their tourmates Down With Webster and Hellogoodbye, how ‘Don’t Trust Me’ taking a year to launch helped them adjust to performing, and collaborating with Ke$ha. Watch the interview via YouTube below.
The artists 3OH!3 and Mann hung out with KIIS FM’s T.J. and Karli from the Block and hit up the Haunted Mazes at Universal Halloween Horror Nights. Watch footage of the fun via YouTube below.
Nat Motte and Sean Foreman of 3OH!3 checked in with fans on their YouTube channel to announce their Streets of Gold Tour with Hellogoodbye and Down With Webster. “We’re mostly going to cities we didn’t hit on our last tour, the Too Fast For Love Tour, so if you didn’t get to see us then, we’ll probably come close to you,” Nat said. “Yet again we did everything we could to keep ticket prices super low for you guys. I know it’s a hard time and a lot of times concerts are really expensive and ticketing fees are really really, expensive, so it’s a shame but we’re doing everything we can to keep them low.” Check out the tour dates at 3oh3music.com and watch the message below.
