Tokyo Police Club on the Late Show with David Letterman Tonight

Tokyo Police Club will appear tonight on The Late Show With David Letterman, performing “Wait Up (Boots of Danger)” from their recently released sophomore effort Champ on Mom + Pop.

The second full length offering from the Newmarket Ontario quartet whose previous releases include 2008′s Elephant Shell album and the 2006 debut EP, A Lesson In Crime, Champ has generated some of the most enthusiastic critical reactions of the band’s career to date. Pitchfork noted that “as other 2006 indie upstarts like Annuals, Be Your Own Pet, and Voxtrot have blown up or faded away, Tokyo Police Club endure. This is not a coincidence,” while The New York Post commented “it’s nice to hear a group smart enough to recognize they have a good thing going,” adding that David Monks’ vocal growth “makes him sound like he’s living the experiences of each song as he sings them,” and The Dallas Morning News hailed Champ’s ability to “stealthily slip underneath your skin.”

The band will wind down its run of dates with Passion Pit thus week, with two New York area shows that will see them play before a combined crowd of over 12,000. Following those shows, Tokyo Police Club will immediately embark on a headlining tour taking them across North America and through the summer, with Freelance Whales supporting (full dates below).
