Following successful dates in the UK last year, the Vancouver-based two-piece Japandroids will return in May for a string of dates including an appearance at The Great Escape Festival.
The dates are below:
Thursday, 13 – Saturday 15 – The Great Escape, Brighton
Monday, 17 – DiScover @ The Harley, Sheffield
Tuesday, 18 – Jericho, Oxford
Wednesday, 19 – Joiners, Southampton
Thursday, 20 – The Garage, London
Additionally, the duo has announced they will be releasing a five-part series of 7″ singles throughout 2010 on Polyvinyl Records. Each limited edition 7″ will feature a previously unreleased track from the ‘Post Nothing‘ album sessions alongside a cover.
Japandroids devised the 7″ series as a way to give something back to their fans while the band is in the midst of heavy touring and unable to record a full album. Each two-song 7″ will be recorded during the brief period of time the band is at home between tours.
First up, released on April 12 is ‘Art Czars‘ – the clear coloured vinyl will also feature ‘Racer-X‘ – a Big Black cover and live favourite. You can pre-order it here plus it will also be available for digital download via this link: http://www.polyvinylrecords.com/store/index.php?id=1002.
Fans can also catch Japandroids next week when they hit our shores for their mini UK tour with northern dates in Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow.
Monday, 22 – Freebutt, Brighton
Tuesday, 23 – ICA, London
Wednesday, 24 – Cockpit 3, Leeds
Thursday, 25 – Deaf Institute, Manchester
Friday, 26 – King Tuts, Glasgow
Saturday, 27 – Korova, Liverpool
