Tokyo Police Club announces Champ

    As we’ve been telling you for a while now, Tokyo Police Club is gearing up for the release of its sophomore LP. That day will come on June 8th, when the Ontario indie outfit makes its debut on new label mom+pop with the release of Champ.

    “It’s a lot more confident, the songs are a bit longer,” drummer Greg Alsop explained of the new album (via ChartAttack). “I think we’re pushing over the three-minute mark on most of them. Elephant Shell was written in this headspace where the EP was getting some attention and we felt we had to live up to it. This one felt like the four of us writing in a room together again, where we didn’t have anything riding on it. So hopefully it sounds liberating that way.”

    For an early preview, please check out the recently revealed track “Breakneck Speed below. (All you have to do is input your email). Plus, you can check them out on the the road starting next month. The upcoming schedule includes an appearance at Coachella and Bonnaroo and dates with Passion Pit.
