Music: Tokyo Police Club

By Rich Shivener · February 8th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

Tokyo Police Club will probably deliver another EP of Electro-laced Indie Rock in late 2011, but most of this year brings month-long tours and time for jamming. So says guitarist Josh Hook, who checked in by phone from Austin, Tex., more than 1,500 miles from his home in Toronto.

“It might be an album, it might be an EP, it might be whatever the next format is in six months,” Hook says about the next recording.

“I really like the idea of EPs. Maybe it will be ‘Extended Extended.' ”

In June, the Canadian foursome released Champ, a full-length mixing dance-floor firestarters with driving rockers like “Wait Up (Boots of Danger)” and “End of a Spark.” It’s fueled another round of touring all-ages venues across North America and a quick stop on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Hook had just finished back-to-back interviews when we connected, so I avoided routine questions about the band’s origins and theories behind Champ.

Tokyo Police Club plays Covington’s Mad Hatter Thursday. Go here to read Rich Shivener's interview with TPC's Josh Hook.
