Successful Warped Tour outings, an ever-expanding domestic and international fan base, sharing bills with amazing artists and a third shot at a full-length album it sounds like life for the members of New Jersey-based pop-rock act Tokyo Rose is pretty damned great. The bands most recent achievements is the completion of its latest SideCho Records full-length, The Promise in Compromise. And though the albums thematic undercurrent is one of deception and false hopes, this is actually one of the bands most upbeat, listener-friendly collections. As a whole weve tapped into what people want to hear from us and expanded upon it, notes singer/guitarist Ryan Dominguez. We all know where we want to go with the music, make it more accessible and have more fun with it. If you cant have fun playing music, then why do it at all? The resulting effort finds Tokyo Roses brilliant delivery of melodic, rhythm-driven rock tracks spanning across a variety of themes. The intentionally powerful, produced and polished sounds of The Promise in Compromise find the band in a position thats anything but downtrodden and deflective.
