Tokyo Police Club have announced their sophomore album.
The Toronto-via-Newmarket band will release Champ, the follow-up to 2008′s Elephant Shell on June 8th through their new label, Mom and Pop.
On the band’s blog, Look Up To Bicycle, frontman Dave Monks recently shared some details about Champ, saying that besides his parents giving it a 10 out of 10, “it has eleven songs, a disney character, fuzzy bits, canadian spelling, hockey sound effects, me singing the lowest note in my range, one (1) saxophone note. and if all this makes you think that we’re rereleasing a tribute to the score of Disney’s The Mighty Ducks, then you may not be entirely off the mark.”
You can judge for yourself whether it’s a tribute to The Mighty Ducks or not by listening to the album’s first single “Breakneck Speed” over at the band’s official site.
TPC will be hitting the road with Passion Pit this June, but will begin a brief Ontario tour next week beginning in Waterloo.
