Japandroids Announce New UK and European Dates‏

June 23, 2012

Celebration Rock is out now on Polyvinyl Records.

Following on from their inclusion in this year’s Polaris Prize long list last week, Vancouver duo Japandroids have announced a full UK and European tour starting this August that will take them through September and includes Pitchfork’s Music Festival in November. This comes on the heels of the rapturously received new album ‘Celebration Rock‘ and their current North American tour, where they sold out shows in Seattle, Portland, SF, LA, San Diego, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, NYC, Brooklyn, Philly, DC and Vancouver.

Their long awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2009 debut ‘Post Nothing‘, ‘Celebration Rock‘, came out on 4th June, debuting at #37 on the USA Billboard charts. The album was produced by Jesse Gander/Japandroids and has been called “one of the year’s most thrilling rock records” by Rolling Stone, and with unanimous agreement all round from other critics it seems like Japandroids ascent into rock stardom is cemented.

Last week, the band performed two songs on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, ‘Fire’s Highway‘ for TV, and a special online performance of ‘The House That Heaven Built‘ featuring The Roots’ “Captain” Kirk Douglas on backing guitars and vocals.
