About Tokyo Police Club:
In January 2017, Tokyo Police Club embarked on a triumphant tour to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their acclaimed debut EP, A Lesson In Crime. It was the cherry on top of a decade that saw the Toronto quartet drive three vans into the ground while touring with the likes of Weezer and Foster The People, gracing the stage of virtually every major festival in North America and Europe, and playing countless, ecstatically received sets, in venues of every size and description. They were also on an episode of 'Desperate Housewives' one timeit's a long story.
The tour ended with a sweat-soaked and joyous encore, with the band joined onstage by support act Charly Bliss, who actually met at a Tokyo Police Club concert years before. "If you were making a movie about us for some reason, you couldn't come up with a better climactic scene," says keyboardist Graham Wright. "It felt like the perfect ending."
Except that instead of fading satisfyingly to black, the band got in a van and drove home, their next steps suddenly uncertain.
"We always felt like we were on some specific mission, working towards one specific goal", says frontman David Monks. "Then I got home and looked around and realized that for the first time I wasn't sure what the goal was supposed to be. And I didn't know if that was terrifying or actually kind of exhilarating."
