The land of opportunity it is called, especially if you happen to not be from Mexico. British folk-rock band Noah and the Whale have taken them at their word and booked a tour to start imminently.
Their debut album "Peaceful the World Lays Me Down" was released in the United Kingdom on August 11, 2008, but it will get its Stateside release of September 16.
The tour will kick off next Tuesday on the day of the album's release and take the band through the major cities of America.
