Tokyo Police Club Premiere New Remix & Add Winter Tour Dates


Tokyo Police Club have premiered a new remix of the Champ album track, “Favourite Colour” by Brooklyn-based DJs PUNCHES, now available for downloading on .  PUNCHES is the Brooklyn-based disco project of twin brothers Greg and Darin Bresnitz-who can be found tearing up the dance floor as DJ duo Finger on the Pulse and nightlife pioneer Alan Astor.  After iterating the original track’s piano lick, PUNCHES takes over with heavy beats and synth, adding even more energy to TPC’s material.

Tokyo Police Club just announced additional dates to their Winter tour, kicking off January 13 in Ottawa, and taking them through their native Canada and most of the U.S. by mid-February.  Also, Champ just made’s “Year In Music”, landing at #31 – “In the end, this is TPC’s most “mature” effort, but the fact that they managed to create it without losing their sense of youth or spirit is what makes it such a rare, unlikely joy.”
