Published Jan 06, 2014Tokyo Police Club recently unveiled a nine-minute lyric video for their epic new song "Argentina (Parts I, II, III)," but they hadn't yet shared any of the details surrounding their forthcoming full-length. Now, the band have finally revealed the album title and tracklist via a word search.
The album is called Forcefield. It's not exactly clear what the tracklist will be, however, since the all of the song titles are hidden within the aforementioned word search (see above). A preliminary scan reveals phrases like "Hot Tonight" and "Tunnel Vision," which we're assuming are track names.
The release date hasn't been announced, but the band tweeted that the album is "coming soon." Meanwhile, scroll past the group's tour schedule to check out the previously unveiled "Argentina (Parts I, II, III)" below and scan the word search above for song titles.
Speaking about the new LP, keyboardist Graham Wright previously told Exclaim!, "Remember when Weezer put out 'Hash Pipe,' or the Strokes put out 'Juicebox,' and everyone was like, 'That's weird, what happened there?' Because they would do those 'rock riffs,' and people were freaked out. I think there are a couple of those rock riffs on our record too — stuff that, three years ago, we would have jammed and laughed about and put in the garbage. This time we were like, 'Wait a minute, these are actually kind of fun and good. Let's turn them into songs.' And they ended up being the best songs on the record."
UPDATE: The band have confirmed the full tracklist. See it below.
