"When Arcade Fire entered the Billboard charts at number one, Canadian bands realized that American fans were taking notice of the supreme talent Canada offers. Taking note from fellow Canadians, Newmarket, Ontario's own Tokyo Police Club is trying to gain their own American success as well. The band has been touring to promote, A Lesson in Crime. The band is ready to tour the states and will kick off their official tour July 16th. Beforehand they will hit New York, Toronto, BC and a couple of festivals including, Coachella and Sasquatch! If you could start it all off why not start it at the top? April 19th the band will make their US television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman. Not a bad start for Tokyo Police Club."
