Tokyo Police Club is an indie rock band from Newmarket, Canada. It consists of vocalist and bassist David Monks, keyboardist Graham Wright, guitarist Josh Hook and drummer Greg Alsop. The band formed in 2005 while playing for fun in a basement after the four had disbanded from a previous group called Suburbia. The band started to gain attention and played some small shows throughout the Toronto area. Tokyo Police Club were asked to play in the Pop Montreal festival, and soon after they signed with Toronto label Paper Bag records. Monks and Alsop dropped out of college to become professional musicians.
