Canadian indie poppers Tokyo Police Club are to make a guest appearance on Desperate Housewives, according to Pitchfork.

They report that the plotline involving the band is related to the men of the series forming a musical act, who take part in a local 'Battle of the Bands' competition. TPC will play one of the other bands taking part.

As well as a performance, the quartet will have speaking roles.
