Scottish band The View caused a bit of a stir in 2007 with their single "Wasted Little DJs" and for being somewhat enfant terribles (they were all in high school at the time). Since then, they've released four albums, including last year's Cheeky for a Reason and you can stream a few tracks from that below.
All four of their albums were Top 20 hits in the UK, but America hasn't paid much attention (or maybe it's the other way around). That hasn't detered them adn the band will be going on a fairly extensive North American tour which includes two shows in NYC: April 6 at Knitting Factory and April 7 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets to both Knit and Bowery go on sale Friday (2/1) at noon, with an AmEx presale happening for the Bowery show today (1/31) at noon.
All tour dates are listed below.

Earlier today The Dead appeared on The View. Video from that below...
As their first tour in five years gets set to launch April 12 in North Carolina, the DEAD have confirmed an appearance Thursday, April 23 on "Late Show with David Letterman" when the tour makes its way through New York City with a sold-out April 25 Madison Square Garden performance.More intesting is that rumors are spreading fast that The Dead will be playing a series of free, but ticketed secret shows in NYC this week. Someone just commented, "The Dead Play 3 free shows NYC, Monday 3-30, Arm bands available by texting dead to 50505." The Dead's official MySpace blog confirms that the 50505 thing is at least associated with them, and by the time that comment was made I had already heard that something similar might be happening. All tour dates below...
Prior to the tour, on Monday, March 30, founding group members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh-along with touring guitarist Warren Haynes-will be interviewed on "The View" and perform acoustically.
The group's founding members--guitarist Weir, bassist Lesh and drummers Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann--reunited late last year at a Barack Obama fundraiser and are touring this Spring, with guitarist Haynes and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti.
In other tour news, the DEAD have confirmed a partnership with www.charityfolks.com, whereby a limited number of excellent tickets are being auctioned off with net proceeds benefiting DEAD-related charities. Beyond good seats for good causes, fans will also have the chance to bid on rare, signed memorabilia from the group's personal archives, including limited-edition show posters. To avert scalping, all auction winners will have to pick up their tickets in-person on the day of the concert.
The above is just an image. Video below....
In support of the Juno soundtrack, The Moldy Peaches will be performing “Anyone Else But You” on The View on Monday, January 21, at 11am on ABC. Please check local listings for time and channel identification, and of course, please tune in!I'm not sure how I feel about that, and I don't mean because of the writers. It's just...The View?!? Kimya and Adam were supposed to do it on Conan, but pulled out when they realized there was still a strike.
In other news, Kimya scheduled another show @ Sound Fix....
This show is for all of the people outside on Tuesday night who couldn't get in and signed the list that was floating around. Anyone on the list must show up before 7pm. We'll open the doors to anyone not on the list at 7.
