Published Jan 09, 2008Celebrated indie stalwarts, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band, have approved the use of their music in a commercial for major American broadcaster ABC. And what cause could be worth breaking Mt Zions notoriously staunch stance against corporate involvement? The upcoming fourth season of hit TV series Lost.
Parts of "Tho You Are Gone I Still Often Walk W/You from 2001s Born Into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upward will be used in commercial teasers leading up to the shows January 31st premiere. Fans are predictably in a tizzy on message boards, rife with sell-out speculation. Lets hope they dont lose sight of the most exciting news in the Mt. Zion camp though. The groups forthcoming album, 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons is scheduled for release March 24 through Constellation. Maybe theyll even be able to squeeze in a few more tour dates this time around with the extra funding.
