Tokyo Police Club Announce US Fall Shows

Although Tokyo Police Club is already embarked on a summer itinerary that includes Denmark, Japan, and Australia, the band has begun plotting a fall return to the US. In addition to previously announced appearances at the Monolith and Treasure Island Festivals in September, the band will headline the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on September 18th, and New York’s Webster Hall on October 18th.

The band’s incessant touring is in support of their debut full length album Elephant Shell, which was released earlier this year by Saddle Creek Records. Elle called the album “a smart, furiously played, sugar-rush debut that sounds like it was inspired by Red Bull benders and unrequited love.” Men’s Health also weighed in, calling Elephant Shell “an aural adrenaline rush, all the way.” But most importantly, PopWreckoning said, “Elephant Shell is a sunny record that is tight, cohesive, driving, dynamic and leaves you wanting more.”

Finally, the band is teaming with the Lupus Foundation Of America to raise money for continued research of lupus, an incurable disease that affects over 1.5 million Americans. Tokyo Police Club’s cover of The Rentals‘ song “Friends Of P” is streaming (and available for download if you’re clever) at, where visitors can make donations and possibly receive a limited-edition Friends Of P tote bag.

Get donating and be sure to catch Tokyo Police Club live this fall. They put on one hell of a show!
