News: Japandroids combine “piss-drenched garage” and “rare punk poetry” new album
Vancouver two-piece, Japandroids, will release their highly-anticipated sophomore album, ‘Celebration Rock’, this 29th June on Pod (The Walkmen, Wavves) through Inertia.
The album follows their universally acclaimed 2009 debut, ‘Post-Nothing’, which earned spots on countless end-of-year Top 50 polls including Pitchfork, Spin, Stereogum and NME.
Japandroids’ brand new single, “The House That Heaven Built”, has already been described as “rare punk poetry” by Pitchfork and “piss-drenched garage at its best” by NME. Listen to the track at SoundCloud.
The result is 8 tracks worth of DIY punk charm, anthemic energy and impulsive, youthful exuberance; not to mention one of 2012’s best albums. The AUS/NZ edition of ‘Celebration Rock’ will include 7 bonus tracks, including 7-inch rarities “Heavenward Grand Prix” and “Art Czars”, as well as covers of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey, Big Black and X.
