Published May 08, 2017Japandroids only wrapped their world tour behind Near to the Wild Heart of Life only days ago, but the two-piece aren't resting on their laurels. Today (May 8) they have detailed a trek through North America that's set to kick off this fall, as well as announced a new 7-inch.
The single is out today on vinyl, and includes the Near to the Wild Heart of Life song "North East South West" on the A-side, as well as a cover of Dead Moon's "Fire in the Western World" on the flip. The digital release arrive on May 16, but you can already pick up the 7-inch here.
As for the duo's new dates, after spending the summer months in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the UK, Japandroids will start the North American run on Canadian soil in October, travelling through Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
A quick skip out east to play Halifax Pop Explosion will give way to dates in Montreal and Toronto, the latter marking their biggest Canadian performance to date at Massey Hall.
A number of Canadian and American dates on the tour will feature support from Cloud Nothings, as outlined below.
