Canadian rock band Tokyo Police Club has added more North American concert dates set for 2019 in promotion of their soon-to-be-released studio album, TPC, which is scheduled to arrive this Friday, Oct. 5. The rock band are set to begin their North American fall tour in a few weeks on Oct. 16 in New York City, which consists mostly of Canadian and west coast U.S. dates. The fall tour will come to a close on Nov. 17 but will pick up again come next spring beginning on March 8 and lasts throughout the remainder of the month.
The 10 new 2019 concerts can be seen listed below and will keep the indie rock outfit playing along with the eastern U.S. before ending on March 23 in Buffalo. Stops on their recently added spring run includes shows at Boston’s The Sinclair, Atlanta’s The Earl and Birmingham, Alabama’s Saturn. Tickets for select shows on their newly announced spring tour will be going on sale starting this Friday and can be found by clicking here.
So far into their new album cycle, Tokyo Police Club have shared four singles in 2018 which are all set to appear on the 12-track LP when it arrives later this week, including "New Blues," "Hercules," "DLTFWYH" and "Simple Dude." The official music video for “Simple Dude” arrived just last month and can be watched in full above. The production of the band’s first studio album since 2014’s Forcefield came as somewhat of a struggle this time around.
“Let’s make it about being present for the moments that are important more than about being devoted to some rock stardom fantasy,” bassist Dave Monks said back over the summer about bringing his band closer together again for their latest musical venture. “You don’t have to give me five records. Just give me a few more rehearsals and some studio time and then we’ll figure it out.”
The band had spent much of last spring touring North America alongside Matt & Kim.
