A new Japandroids album is real and it’s coming in 2017


It has been four long, cold, lonely years since our Canadian friends Japandroids released Celebration Rock, their second album. Our hearts have been aching for new music from Brian King and David Prowse ever since, and today we got a real Halloween treat from the duo. There’s a new album coming from the band next year.

The band updated their website and social media accounts with a short video announcing the new record. The band’s third album will be called Near To The Wild Heart Of Life and will be released by Anti Records sometime in 2017. The video consists of some black and white concert footage and what sounds like a fantastic opener to a song.

You can watch the announcement video down below. We are absolutely thrilled to have Japandroids back in our lives, and you can be sure we’re eagerly anticipating an exact release date. Until then, it’s never a bad time to revisit Post-Nothing and Celebration Rock.
