Tokyo Police Club has shared a new song “New Blues” today, prior to its official digital release, April 20. Bassist/vocalist Monks explained, “It was exciting to hear ourselves in such a big space like that, the drums ring out, the guitars blend and swirl. I think it really affected the arrangements and songwriting. We started to favour simple rhythms, slower tempos (relatively speaking) and energy over details. It was really liberating. I think New Blues really shows how we thrived doing that.”

They also announced a three-week U.S. tour supporting Matt & Kim, which kicks off tonight in Minneapolis.
