Tokyo Police Club Premieres 'Hot Tonight' Video, Album 'Forcefield' Out Today!

The video for "Hot Tonight," the lead single off Forcefield, is streaming now at Gawker's video game site Kotaku, watch here: Furthermore, to celebrate the release, the band will embark on a nationwide tour beginning in April, with support from Geographer and Said the Whale. See below for details.

Forcefield was produced by Doug Boehm (Dr. Dog, Girls) and David Monks (vocals, bass). Of the new music Monks notes, "Since writing started for Forcefield in mid-2011 there have been so many trends and every kind of 'wave.' We saw them all come and disappear or change into something broader. It left us wanting to make something that would last. We ended up rediscovering energy and guitars and simple, direct songs.

There was certainly a lot of pressure to take the music somewhere new and there were lots of opinions about how to do that, but in the end we blocked all that out and followed our instincts. I think that's what Forcefield is-it doesn't matter what else is going on out there, the music just has to be honest and have a real feeling to it." See below for full track listing.
Bursting onto the scene in 2006 with 16 minutes of music-A Lesson In Crime EP-that garnered an ecstatic response, the Newmarket, Ontario quartet has never looked back. Tokyo Police Club is Monks, Graham Wright (keys), Josh Hook (guitar) and Greg Alsop (drums).
