Tokyo Police Club has just announced the release of their upcoming sophomore album, Champ. The album will be out June 8th on new label mom+pop (original, right?). The band is giving away "Breakneck Speed", the first song to sample from the album.
TPC drummer Greg Alsop said of the album: “It’s a lot more confident, the songs are a bit longer, 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.” Liberating? Yes, please.
