Our Lady Peace Borrows Gear From Everclear, Eve 6; Shoots New Video

What do you do if you arrive at a gig and your equipment isn't there? Well, if you're Our Lady Peace, you hit up some of your friends and old tour mates for gear.

That's exactly what OLP was forced to do over the weekend when the Canadian quartet was supposed to play at a radio festival in Seattle, Washington. The band arrived at the concert, only to discover that its instruments were being held up in Los Angeles with U.S. Customs agents.

But rather than cancel the band's first major appearance since Woodstock '99, Our Lady Peace bummed equipment from Everclear and Eve 6 -- both of whom have toured with OLP in the past. Newer friends in Zebrahead also pitched in to help musically arm the group.

Our Lady Peace has just completed work with director Mark Kohr on a video for "One Man Army," [RealAudio] the first single from its upcoming record "Happiness Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch,"

due out

on September 21.

OLP has also announced a few scattered dates it will play to support the new record, starting on September 25 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The tentative itinerary for Our Lady Peace's fall tour:
