Published Mar 06, 2019Tokyo Police Club are back with a new video. The clip is for their track "Ready to Win," which "takes the tracks lyrics and fan submitted f*ck ups to tell a tale of perseverance through falling down."
The video was created by videographer Anne Douris, and if that concept sounds a little weird to you, the band are here to help explain things.
"When we asked people to send in their f*ck ups, I figured we'd get a bunch of funny 'I tripped over my cat' style ones, and I was really knocked over by how earnest and serious people were," said TPC guitarist Graham Wright in a statement. "And when we saw that, it made us be more earnest and serious about our own f*ck ups (yes there are a bunch of my mistakes hiding in there, no I will not tell you which ones). As much as anything else, making music is basically trying to turn your mistakes into something worthwhile, so getting to literally build a music video out of people's fuck ups was pretty special."
Down below, you can see the result for yourself.
"Ready to Win" comes from Tokyo Police Club's most recent album, TPC, which arrived in 2018. In further support of that record, the band are kicking off a North American tour on Friday (March 8), and you can see all the dates below as well.
