The Ting Tings, the UK's hottest new musical export, are quickly becoming 2008's most refreshing summer sensation with a newly expanded US tour, television appearances and online exposure, a string of popular singles, and the recent stateside arrival on June 3 of their #1 UK chart-topping debut album, "We Started Nothing."

The Ting Tings launched their current North American tour - their first since a small round of dates in March surrounding the duo's electrifying performances at the 2008 South By Southwest (SxSW) music festival - with their US network television debut on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on June 6. The group is slated appear on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on July 28.

Jules De Martino and Katie White, a.k.a. the Ting Tings, have been consistently winning over critics and audiences alike with their irresistible blend of electro-pop sounds and dance-punk attitude. The Ting Tings will expand their US club tour into July and August with dates including the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and a show at the McCarren Park Pool in Brooklyn with Columbia labelmates MGMT.
