Japandroids Schedule Fall Tour! Everyone Is Shouting All The Time! Aaaaaahhhh!

Vancouver-based garager rockers Japandroids are going on tour! They’re going on tour in the fall! Why am I shouting!? Because that’s how Japandroids do it! They shout a lot! I figured this is how Japandroids would write this story! Solidarity, man!

The duo is actually on the road right now in the midst of a West Coast tour wrapping up in the beginning of August! Then they’ll take a break for a month! Then the boys are leaving town again for a pretty massive East Coast tour in September and October! On the way, they’ll pick up their buddies Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band, who are touring on their self-titled debut, and The Coathangers, who just dropped their sophomore LP Scrambles (TMT Review)!

Japandroids are touring in support of their shout-tastic debut LP Post-Nothing (TMT Review), released earlier this year on Unfamiliar! One release wasn’t enough for these guys, though! Post-Nothing is getting a wider release on Polyvinyl August 4! People have been saying a lot of good things about the record, so good move on Polyvinyl’s part! Pitchfork, NY Times, Spin, NPR, and Cokemachineglow, among others, have given it a big thumbs up! Even Tiny Mix Tapes liked it! It received the coveted four-little-balls-out-of-five-little-balls award!
