Tokyo Police Club’s “Coloring Book” tour poster design contest is coming to an end. Now they need your help to color in the winners! Arrive at their upcoming shows early and help color in the three winning posters at the venue. At the end of each show, the posters will be collected and posted on their Facebook Page. Make sure you tag yourself!
As the tour goes on, we’ll need your coloring skills online as well as on the road. All three winning tour poster designs are available on Tokyo Police Club’s website to download. Color them in either digitally or by hand and post them to Tokyo Police Club’s Facebook Page to be entered for a chance to win one of the signed posters colored by hand from each show!
Break out the crayons. Be creative. We look forward to checking out your work!

We predict this new year will be known for many things: purple zebras, true love, chocolate babies, and the year that Tokyo Police Club release their first magazine! It’s going to be for sale on this tour that they’re just about to start (dates here). There are only 200 of them, so you’re going to want to get your hands on these while they last.
For a small price, you get tons of cool stuff, including a download card of Champ, interviews, weird pictures(taken by the band), and poems.
For more information, follow the link below.

Tokyo Police Club are looking for the next great t-shirt design, created by you. The winning work of art will be printed on a limited edition t-shirt (you’ll get one, of course), and the lucky artist will score an autographed TPC discography, plus “serious bragging rights.”
All you have to do is download the assets from Tokyopoliceclub.cinderblock.com/tpc_design_contest and email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 8. There are a bunch of specific requirements for your entry, so make sure you read all the contest rules… but most of all, have fun!
