Tokyo Police Club Unveil Video For New Single ‘Simple Dude’

New album TPC out October 5

Toronto-based indie rockers Tokyo Police Club have shared a new video for “Simple Dude” from their forthcoming full-length TPC, arriving October 5 via Dine Alone Records. The video was created using film negatives shot by bassist/vocalist Dave Monks during the recording of the upcoming album. “Simple Dude” was animated by videographer Anne Douris.

“To me – ‘Simple Dude’ is a roller coaster… the slow climb of the verse – the drop of the chorus… that lift in the pit of your gut as you pull back up into the second verse and that feeling of just soaring right as the cart slows down towards the end,” drummer Greg Alsop said in a release. “That’s what I felt the first time we played through it and that’s what I still feel every time we play it.”
