“Champ bounces with frenzied guitar riffs, sweet synths, pitter-patter drum beats and saucer-eyed optimism” 8/10 NME

Following the recent release of their glorious second album Champ, a sold out show at London’s Scala and a triumphant appearance at Latitude, Canada’s spiky young 4 piece Tokyo Police Club have just announced a new headline UK tour for November 2010 and a new single Bambi out 27 Sept.

The album Champ sees Tokyo Police Club combine the tautness and excitement of their first mini album A Lesson in Crime with the thoughtfulness evident on full length debut Elephant Shell. With a visceral bite offset by a sweetly oblique lyricism, it harnesses their restless fizz bomb energy to a pop nous that has always been bubbling under the surface. Incidentally, for fans of the beautiful game, its one of Champ’s highlights, Favourite Colour, that you can currently hear sound tracking the goals round up on this season’s Match of the Day.

Check out the video to Bambi here:

The November live dates are as follows:

04 November, Manchester, Ruby Lounge

06 November, Glasgow, King Tuts

08 November, Leeds, Cockpit

09 November, London, Heaven

10 November, Brighton, Audio

Tickets for the tour go on sale this coming Friday, 27th August 2010.
