    Delivering a pop rock uppercut on its debut full-length album Famous First Words, Britain's Viva Brother are returning to the US this fall to wow American audiences with "guitar rock that seemed factory-tooled for open-air-festival croon-a-longs," which is what SPIN said about these fair Brits.

    The band's fall tour, which begins on Sept. 2nd, is the third visit to North America for the four young lads from Slough, which is the setting for the British version of The Office. It is also Viva Brother's first tour since the Aug. 2 release of their debut full-length for A&M/Octone, which is the aforementioned Famous First Words. It is a ten-track opus of glittering brevity produced by Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths) that has earned Viva Brother accolades on this side of The Atlantic.
