My Morning Jacket Plan tour announcement, talk Muppets

"We're going to announce another announcement," says My Morning Jacket, only half joking, backstage at Austin City Limits. Frontman Jim James explains that the band is on the cusp of unveiling a major fall tour. "We're trying to make it really exciting," he says, of the actual announcement. "You have to do that with everything these days." For starters, MMJ plans to bring out a number of cool bands and guests with them this time – including, they hope, a certain loveable cast of Jim Henson puppets.
