Peter Bjorn and John team up with Fujiya & Miyagi

They're set to tour North America together this spring

Peter, Bjorn and John have invited Brighton electronica trio Fujiya & Miyagi to open for them on all of the dates of their upcoming North American tour (with the exception of the Coachella Festival on April 29).

Last Wednesday, Fujiya & Miyagi headlined a raging night at Club NME Los Angeles with Fred Perry Subculture, and both bands made a splash at Austin’s South by Southwest festival last week.

“We’ve got a good position now in the States,” frontman Peter Moren told NME.COM. “The record’s out and it’s doing well, so we’re trying to build on that.”
