(March 28, 2016 – Toronto, ON) – Acclaimed indie four-piece Tokyo Police Club have released “PCH” – the second cut from their forthcoming EP, Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness (Part 1). The A.V. Club proclaims that the bubbly and breezy song, “wistfully wishes for the start of summer.” “PCH” premiered online via The A.V Club on Friday and had its radio debut via The Strombo Show last night.
TPC bassist-vocalist David Monk explains, “It was our one day off back in Toronto in the middle of a long, freezing Canadian winter tour and we wanted to spend it doing something ‘non-tour-y.’ We had this song floating around, “PCH”, that I had written in LA at one time. I was actually in Malibu when I came up with it, looking out over this crazy huge mountain canyon. I had lots of delay on my voice and this giant melody came out like I was gonna fill that space. So to give us a break from the cold ass winter, we called up our old friend Jon Drew, holed up in his warm studio for a day and recorded a song about a much sunnier place.”
Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness (Part 1) is the 1st instalment of two EP’s to be released in 2016 by the critically lauded four-piece. It marks the band’s first release since their enterprising and vaulting 2014 LP Forcefield, as well as the 10-year anniversary of their debut EP A Lesson In Crime. The new music sees Tokyo Police Club looking back to the energy and spirit of that formative era while keeping an eye on the future. Melon Collie and the Infinite Radness (Part 1) is now available to pre-order digitally via iTunes and physically on CD and cassette format via the Dine Alone Webstore.
