Tokyo Police Club's Dave Monks Announces New EP 'On a Wave Goes Wild'
Tokyo Police Club frontman Dave Monks has announced another solo foray, a raw and unedited companion record to 2019's On a Wave. On June 24, On a Wave Goes Wild will arrive via Dine Alone Records.

Recorded in Port William Sound recording studio back in February, Goes Wild isn't quite an acoustic record — it still has electric guitars — but the five-track EP has certainly taken a change in pace from its predecessor.

"It's the most raw and unedited thing I've ever put out," Monks said in a statement. "Is it an acoustic EP? To me, it's more of 'Live from the studio' — the way we would perform if we were 'on air' at a radio station."

Goes Wild is Monks's latest record following last year's On a Wave, which arrived in October.

The artist has yet to release any tracks from the effort, but Dine Alone has offered up a teaser with a new video.

Listen to a preview of the record below.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

EP Announce! I'll be quick here: Alyson and I went up to @portwilliamsound in Feb and recorded the live versions of my tunes we had worked out. It's the most raw and unedited thing I've ever put out and I'm really proud of it. Is it an acoustic EP? You could call it that, but there is electric guitar on it. To me it's more of "Live from the studio" - the way we would perform if we were "on air" at a radio station. It comes out June 24th on @dinealonerecords on all streaming services etc... On the movement at hand: it's a time for action. The link in my bio takes you straight to the Black Health Alliance donations page. They work to improve the health and well being of black communities in Canada. And, if you DM a receipt to @wearetokyopoliceclub, we will try to match your donation. (Ran through our funds already but are working on securing some more).
