The long awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2009 debut, ‘Post-Nothing’, will see its release this summer. ‘Celebration Rock’ will be available 4th June in the UK, 5th June in USA on Polyvinyl Record Co.

‘Celebration Rock’, featuring eight new tracks, will be available on CD/LP/Digital. There is also a limited edition of 1,000 on 180-gram red vinyl available for pre-order at: http://polyvinylrecords.com/celebrationrock

Starting mid-May, Japandroids will head out on what will be a long road of touring, starting in the UK in mid-May and winding up in Vancouver in July. See all tour dates below, with new London date added at The Garage on 28th May.

King recently talked to Pitchfork about recording the album, which was created in Vancouver at The Hive with engineer Jesse Gander, who they had previously worked with on ‘Post-Nothing’:

“On a lot of this new record, we actually tried to simulate the sound of what we thought the crowd would do during the songs,” says King. “Dave and I were in the studio just screaming out as if we were in the audience at our own show.”

1 The Nights Of Wine And Roses
2 Fire’s Highway
3 Evil’s Sway
4 For The Love Of Ivy
