Band Spotlight: Tokyo Police Club

History: The four members started playing in a basement in Ontario in 2005 -- for fun. Shortly thereafter, they started playing together at festivals and larger gigs. They signed to Canadian indie label Paper Bag Records later in 2005.

Years Active: 2005-Present

Dave Monks (Vocals/Bass)
Josh Hook (Guitar)
Graham Wright (Keyboard)
Greg Alsop (Drums)

"Nature of the Experiment"
"Cheer It On"
"Be Good"
"Citizens of Tomorrows"
