The actor helps out his New York rocker pals...
THE MOONEY SUZUKI have recruited famous fan JACK BLACK to help out on their new video.
The actor and Tenacious D star plays the role of the band’s manager in the video for the new US single ‘In A Young Man’s Mind’. At the start of the video, Black is seen in the back of a car, giving ‘advice’ to the band, as well as screaming down the phone at nightclub owners.
“They had a great time filming,” a source close to the band told NME.COM. “He’s a fan and they met when the Mooneys did a tour with The Strokes. He’s a fan and was happy to appear!”
The Mooney Suzuki are keen to return the favour and will be making a cameo in the forthcoming Tenacious D movie. Before that hits the screens, they will come to the UK in May for a tour to promote their album ‘Electric Sweat’, which is released on May 12 via Columbia. Last year, the band toured with the likes of [a][/a] and fellow New York friends The Strokes.
The shows are at:
London Boston Arms (May 9)
Cardiff Barfly (10)
Leeds Cockpit (11)
Glasgow Barfly (12)
Liverpool The Masque (13)
Manchester Night & Day (14)
Coventry Colosseum (16)
