TOKYO POLICE CLUB TOUR SOLD OUT IN NYC, LA, SF, TORONTO
DEBUT ALBUM ELEPHANT SHELL OUT APRIL 22 ON SADDLE CREEK

Although the release of their first full-length album is still a month away, Tokyo Police Club has started their US tour with a bang, selling out three nights in New York and two in Los Angeles among others.

The furor around the tour and upcoming album isn't a complete surprise; the band's 2006 EP A Lesson In Crime was perhaps the best received 16 minutes of music in recent history. Since then, TPC has toured virtually non-stop, pausing only to release last year's Smith EP and digital-only single "Your English Is Good." Elephant Shell (which will also be released in the UK on May 5th via Memphis Industries) features the single "Tessellate" and "In a Cave," the latter of which was described by Pitchfork as "what these young Canadian dudes do best, barreling forward with a bouncy herky-jerk rhythm, braiding together several strands of ringing guitar, and filling in the spaces with those Day-Glo chords that made 'Nature of the Experiment' such a winner."

Tokyo Police Club was formed in 2005 by David Monks (vocals, bass), Josh Hook (guitar), Graham Wright (keyboards), and Greg Alsop (drums). The complete track listing for Elephant Shell is:


1. Centennial

2. In A Cave
3. Graves
4. Juno
5. Tessellate
6. Sixties Remake
7. The Harrowing Adventures Of...
8. Nursery Academy
9. Your English Is Good
10. Listen To The Math
11. The Baskervilles

If you are serious then you need to end your life. I have never heard TPC but being on Saddle Creek could mean good things because that is a wonderful label and all I know right now is that Tokio Hotel is a musical abortion.
