Back in ’08, Canadian rock band Tokyo Police Club was rocketing to popularity. When they filmed a music video in my high school (that’s my friend Alex playing the bully), everyone was buzzing about how there were rock stars on campus. A lot has changed since then though, and the band has been fairly quiet for the last few years, taking their time to record a follow-up to 2010’s Champ. Now you can hear the first single from their next LP, the epic, nearly nine-minute “Argentina (Parts I, II, III).” The band sounds more mature, a little more wistful, but still catchy as hell. In other words, Modern Vampires Of The City is already letting its influence loose on the world. Watch the lyric video below.
The currently untitled album is due out in early 2014.
