When Ume's incendiary video for lead single "Captive" premiered it was shown on mtvU 24 times in 24 hours. It has now moved up the ranks and today made its debut on MTV2's "120 Minutes." The clip features the band performing in a burning abandoned house along with some scorching guitar heroics by frontwoman Lauren Larson. The Austin-based trio will be heading out on tour with indie rock dynamos Cursive next week (new dates have been added). The tour will begin in Denver on February 12 and hit Los Angeles on February 24 before ending in Omaha on March 3.

Before leaving for tour Ume will headline a hometown show at The Parish in Austin on February 10 for the Oh Snap! Blackout Party. Just before the band were to play a headlining set at the Oh Snap! benefit show last Friday night the power on 6th Street went out leaving hundreds of fans in the dark. This show will make up for that and feature several bands that weren't able to play due to the outage.
