We all know Tokyo Police Club
is planning a European tour this summer, but luckily for fans of Elephant Shell
, (us included), they released plans to return in the fall to North America. Oh, and on a semi-related note, they are fighting Lupus too. "Fighting Lupus" almost sounds like a TPC song...
Anyway, the band just announced a few more dates, including ones in LA and NY. On a related note, the band teamed up with the Lupus Foundation of America
to raise money for research. The disease affects over 1.5 million Americans. But fear not bloggers, you can fight Lupus by donating after you stream TPC's cover of "Friends Of P" by The Rentals
(or download it, if you're clever). And you can possibly receive a limited edition tote bag as well. We wonder if it will match our outfits-joe puglisi
