Two Door Cinema Club at Revolution Live on June 5

Contagious choruses are hardly anything new to the music industry; they're almost the heart of it. Three-piece band Two Door Cinema Club makes climbing the charts look crazy easy even without straight pop hooks.

Its genre-bending fusion of pop, indie rock, and dance makes it stand out from the rest of the radio stuff. For five years, frontman Alex Trimble has led the band at music festivals across the pond as massive as T in the Park and those in Reading and Leeds.

The band has opened for groups like Phoenix, Tokyo Police Club, and Metronomy on nationwide tours. Their music is at once memorable, dance-worthy, and radio-friendly, which makes for a great transition from playing for Brits to performing for the American masses stateside. Last year, Two Door Cinema made appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Virgin Mobile FreeFest, and now the Irish lads are touring the U.S. for the first time as headliners.

With only one full-length album under their belts — 2010's Tourist History — fans can expect to hear plenty of hits like "I Can Talk," "What You Know," and "Come Back Home" this weekend at Revolution Live, but will new, unreleased material make a sonic appearance as well? You'll have to be there to find out.
