Peter Bjorn and John Announce North American Dates, Play Toronto and Vancouver

Peter Bjorn and John Announce North American Dates, Play Toronto and Vancouver
It's been a couple of months now that we have known about Peter Bjorn and John's new album Gimme Some. As the follow-up to 2009's electro-inflected Living Thing, the trio's latest promised to be a "pure pop rock album." Judging by its first single, the bright and buzzy "Breaker Breaker," it seems as if the boys are going to deliver the goods. A song that pumped-up suggests the Swedes would really kick out the jams if they tossed it into their live show. Lucky for us, a new tour announcement means we will be able to find out for ourselves firsthand.

The band have revealed a lengthy tour schedule that criss-crosses over Europe before finding the group on our shores. Canadian fans can catch Peter Bjorn and John in Toronto and Vancouver. You can check out all the dates below.
