TOKYO POLICE CLUB
ELEPHANT SHELL
DEBUT ALBUM OUT LATE APRIL ON SADDLE CREEK (U.S.), MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES (UK)

Following on one of the most well received 16 minutes of music in recent history (2006's A Lesson In Crime EP), Ontario's favorite sons TOKYO POLICE CLUB confirm the completion and release of their first full length album, Elephant Shell, due out late April on Saddle Creek in North America and Memphis Industries in the UK.

Tokyo Police Club was formed in 2004 by David Monks (vocals, bass), Josh Hook (guitar), Graham Wright (keyboards) and Greg Alsop (drums) during their senior year in high school. Within two years they had released the aforementioned debut EP, immediately eliciting raves from Entertainment Weekly ("We can hardly wait for the full length... A-), Rolling Stone ("If only all young guitar bands were smart enough to rock out this fast"), Interview, Blender and Nylon among others. Since then, TPC has been touring virtually non-stop, pausing only to release last year's Smith EP and digital-only single "Your English Is Good" / "Swedes In Stockholm," and of course to record Elephant Shell.

The complete track listing for Elephant Shell is: "Centennial", "In A Cave", "Graves", "Juno", "Tessellate", "Sixties Remake", "The Harrowing Adventures Of...", "Nursery Academy", "Your English Is Good", "Listen To The Math", "The Baskervilles".

Tokyo Police Club begins a tour tomorrow night at Connexion in Oakville, ONT, with dates running up to the release of Elephant Shell and beyond (tonight's show at Ottawa's Algonquin College has been rescheduled due to weather conditions). See the below list of all confirmed dates.
