Kaiser Chiefs Help Break NME Into The US

In NME's attempt to take over the world they have set their sites on the US of A with an NME sponsored tour featuring the Kaiser Chiefs. Other UK acts will be on the tour as well and have yet to be announced.

"NME is the first place any new band wants to see their name in print...the influence it has on the British music scene is immense and it's time to spread that to the U.S.", says singer Ricky Wilson.

The tour begins in NYC at the Roseland Ballroom and hits all the major US pit stops. Expect a massive presence at SXSW this year as well. Thank god...hopefully NME can spark some life into the lifeless music scene thats been consumed by people saying Ra Ra Riot is actually a good band. Ra Ra Refund!
