Tokyo Rose Gets Critical Acclaim, Much Love from Bands

“I had heard this band Tokyo Rose was good and now I know why. They made a great record and these days that’s saying a lot. Two words about Tokyo Rose, REALLY GREAT SONGS, Ok that was three but you get the idea.” – MxPx

“Lots of bands try it but Tokyo Rose has successfully figured out how to blend all different styles and influences together to come up with their own great sound.” – Bayside

“The new album The Promise In Compromise from Tokyo Rose is… something that music has been
missing. With unique vocals and melodies that are stuck in your head [right down] to catchy riffs–
it keeps you wanting more. From… the diversity, clarity, and beauty of this album it is clear that this
is their best effort to date.” – Senses Fail

To ensure that summer wouldn’t be boring, SideCho Records recording artist Tokyo Rose released their widely-hailed third album, The Promise in Compromise, and circled the country on multiple tours, including this year’s Vans Warped Tour in support of it. So to make sure that they up the ante this Fall, these hardworking melodic indie rockers from Jersey are hitting the road again. Presented by Hot Topic and Punk the Clock, The Life and Lies Tour will feature Tokyo Rose alongside Love Hate Her, So They Say, and National Product. Dates begin the third week of October and running straight through till the end of November. (stay tuned for dates and cities!)

While the tour passes through each of these cities at a time, fans everywhere will be able to watch the video they just filmed for their single “We can be best friends tonight but tomorrow I’ll be…” The video, directed by horror movie virtuoso Steven C. Miller (Automaton Transfusion), depicts the harsh reality of the life of a rock star unable to escape throngs of fans even just to spend a few moments with his girl. “I wanted to work with the guys in Tokyo Rose after hearing their new album and single,” says Miller, “it seemed to be a lot of fun and it gave me an opportunity to work with other forms of music. I’m very excited to be on this video.”

The Promise in Compromise, a fiercely melodic album of indie rock that doesn’t skimp on the hooks or the guitars, was released this summer.

So keep your eyes peeled this fall for Tokyo Rose on tour and on video outlets!
