The guys in Tokyo Police Club are popping up in an unexpected place: Wisteria Lane.
The Newmarket, Ont., band spent the past two days in Los Angeles taping their guest appearance on the hit ABC show “Desperate Housewives.”
According to Pitchfork, the foursome have speaking roles that will showcase their acting and musical abilities.
They are appearing as one of the bands taking part in a local battle of the bands competition, a contest that the men of “Desperate Housewives” — played by James Denton, Doug Savant, Kyle MacLachlan, Ricardo Antonio Chavira and Neal McDonough — are also entering.
The episode featuring Tokyo Police Club will air sometime in November.
It won’t be the first time the band is referenced on the show. In a recent episode, Lynette (Felicity Huffman) engaged in a bit of online deception by impersonating a teenage girl who likes graphic novels and Tokyo Police Club.
As well, the band’s own label, Mean Beard Records, lends its name to a local record store on the show. In an interview earlier this year with Toronto Life, the band’s Greg Alsop revealed that one of the label’s co-owners is a script consultant on the series.
Tokyo Police Club are currently touring with Weezer and Angels & Airwaves.
