In other TATE news, a recently-made video for new single Midnight by filmmaker DJ Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye) has helped the band secure support on the ever-influential VH1 program You Oughta Know.

The song had been named the #1 Alternative Track by iTunes last December, and was a Top 5 Modern Rock smash.

Further shows will be announced soon, including New Zealand, Australia, more North American and European dates and a very special show in Los Angeles in December.
