Tokyo Police Club previews new album with streaming track 'Breackneck Speed'

Canadian indie-rock quartet Tokyo Police Club returns June 8 with a new album on a new label.

“Elephant Shell,” the band’s 2008 debut, came out on Saddle Creek. “Champ,” the band’s second full-length album, is due on Mom + Pop, the label owned by some of the music-industry heavy hitters behind the Q-Prime management company, which handles Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Snow Patrol.

But don’t let that dissuade you: the label is also home to Freelance Whales, and if that’s not enough, Tokyo Police Club’s new track “Breakneck Speed” belies the insider connections with crackling guitar lines descending over loose, punchy bass, terse drums and occasional blasts of synthesizers.

You can listen to the song here, and it can be yours in mp3 form in exchange for your e-mail address.
