Tour name: TOKYO POLICE CLUB @ THE RUBY LOUNGE
Ontario’s Tokyo Police Club are back with a brand new album Forcefield, set for release on 24 March through Memphis Industries. The album is available for preorder on iTunes, each order including an instant download of two tracks, the 8 minute epic that is ‘Argentina (Parts I, II, III)’, and their most pure pop moment to date, ‘Hot Tonight’.
The new record is the quartet’s first release in four years, following 2010’s hugely acclaimed Champ. Having teased the new album just before the new year with the mesmerizing video for the album’s opening track ‘Argentina (Parts I, II, III)’, Tokyo Police Club have also recently premiered ‘Hot Tonight’ on Pitchfork.
Forcefield is perhaps TPC’s most direct statement of intent yet, musically referencing anything from Tom Petty to Smashing Pumpkins, whilst never losing the unmistakable energy that has marked their work ever since their debut mini-album A Lesson in Crime. The forthcoming album was produced by Doug Boehm (Girls, Dr Dog) and singer David Monks.
