The fact that Tokyo Police Club are BTA's pick for world domination in 2008 should come as a surprise to basically nobody.
Their debut full-length, Elephant Shell, is due out two Tuesdays from now (April 22nd) on Saddle Creek, they're headlining the upcoming Exclaim! spring Canadian tour, selling out venues across the globe, and (perhaps most importantly) they're getting interviewed by the most influential music e-journalists on the globe (again).
On the topic of BTA/TPC synergies, we've got a pair of tickets for the (SOLD OUT!) Ottawa Exclaim! stop, April 18th at Barrymore's. To get 'em, email us with the subject line "it's about damn time you jerks had an Ottawa contest" before noon on April 17th.
The Ottawa and Montreal dates also feature the most exciting new band I've seen in quite some time, aka Aurora's Ruby Coast. Keep glued to BTA in the coming days, as we will be providing a much more formal introduction to these youthful indie-poppers, likely to be your new faves.
In the meantime, do check out the recent interview MF Blaz procured with Greg from the TP Club here.
