Let's get to the important stuff, their first North America dates, including three Brooklyn shows and a Philly gig ... so far.
- January 19: Shea Stadium -- Brooklyn
- January 22: The Middle East -- Boston
- January 23: Glasslands -- Brooklyn
- January 24: Horseshoe Tavern -- Toronto

Then they go back to the UK to play the NME Awards Tour with headliners Django Django, Miles Kane (of The Rascals and The Last Shadow Puppets) and Peace.
That tour will be in conjuntion with their debut album. All we know new today that it will be out February 25 in the UK. As with their single, Rough Trade will be releasing with Pulp's Steve Mackey producing. "Best of Friends" was named the single of year by NME. Yeah, I'd put in my Top 10.
