Japandroids UK Tour Starts This Week, Plus 'The House That Heaven Built' Single Out Now

Following on from the release of Japandroids' new single 'The House That Heaven Built' on Monday, the Vancouver duo are set to embark on their first UK/EU tour in two years. Starting off in Cardiff tomorrow (17th May), Japandroids bring their visceral show to eleven cities including two London stops on the 22nd and 28th May. Full details are below.

'The House That Heaven Built' was released 14th May on 7" via Polyvinyl Record Co complete with a b-side of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds 'Jack The Ripper'.

This is all the precursor to the long awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2009 debut, 'Post-Nothing', 'Celebration Rock'. The new album will be available 4th June in the UK, 5th June in USA on Polyvinyl Record Co.

Japandroids features Brian King (vocals, guitar) and Dave Prowse (vocals, drums**). 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."

'Celebration Rock' track listing:

1 The Nights Of Wine And Roses

2 Fire's Highway

3 Evil's Sway

4 For The Love Of Ivy

5 Adrenaline Nightshift

6 Younger Us

7 The House That Heaven Built
