Tokyo Police Club Announce U.S. Tour In Support Of ‘Forcefield’

Tokyo Police Club group

Tokyo Police Club are hitting the road on a nationwide tour beginning this April in support of their forthcoming album ‘Forcefield’, which drops March 25th via Mom + Pop Music. Tickets will be available to the public starting this Friday (January 24).

In place of a standard pre-order, Tokyo Police Club is encouraging fans to participate in a PledgeMusic campaign, where they can pre-order the album in a variation of bundles, while taking part in an intimate fan club style promotion.

‘Forcefield’ is Tokyo Police Club’s first release in four years, following 2010’s ‘Champ’, which received widespread acclaim. The band teased the record just before the new year with a video for the track ‘Argentina (Parts I, II, III)’.

‘Forcefield’ was produced by Doug Boehm (Dr. Dog, Girls) and David Monks (vocals, bass). Of the new music Monks notes, “Since writing started for Forcefield in mid-2011 there have been so many trends and every kind of ‘wave’. We saw them all come and disappear or change into something broader. It left us wanting to make something that would last. We ended up rediscovering energy and guitars and simple, direct songs. There was certainly a lot of pressure to take the music somewhere new and there were lots of opinions about how to do that, but in the end we blocked all that out and followed our instincts. I think that’s what Forcefield is—it doesn’t matter what else is going on out there, the music just has to be honest and have a real feeling to it.” See below for full track listing.

Tokyo Police Club is Monks, Graham Wright (keys), Josh Hook (guitar) and Greg Alsop (drums). Bursting onto the scene in 2006 with 16 minutes of music—A Lesson In Crime EP—that garnered an ecstatic response, the Newmarket, Ontario quartet has never looked back.

Forcefield Tracklist
1. Argentina (Parts I, II, III)
2. Hot Tonight
3. Miserable
4. Gonna Be Ready
5. Beaches
6. Toy Guns
7. Tunnel Vision
8. Through The Wire
