Tokyo Police Club share the appropriately-titled “Happy Valentine’s Day”

February 14th 2014

Tokyo Police Club took to their Tumblr this morning to share the appropriately-timed “Happy Valentine’s Day” — a previously unheard track, but in fact the first they ever wrote(!)

We started Tokyo Police Club in high school and the very first song we wrote was “Happy Valentines Day”. It’s a rock song about a senior-year romance falling apart. We decided to re-record it this year and share it with you all. So here you go, an update of a classic. – Dave Monks, TPC

Tokyo Police Club’s new album “Forcefield” will be released March 25, and is available to pre-order now on iTunes, and via PledgeMusic.

Tokyo Police Club announce new album “Forcefield”, stream “Hot Tonight”

January 13th 2014


Today Tokyo Police Club announced their much anticipated follow-up to 2010’s “Champ”. “Forcefield” is available to pre-order now on iTunes, with an immediate download of their brand new single “Hot Tonight”.

“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 Forcefieldis—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.” — David Monks

The aforementioned “Hot Tonight” premiered earlier this morning over on Pitchfork, and is available to stream now.

In case you missed it at the end of last year, Tokyo Police Club also dropped a preview of their new record in the form of “Argentina (Parts I, II, III)”, watch the 9-minute video below.
