TOUR WATCH: Japandroids Begins North American Fall/Winter Tour TODAY; ‘Celebration Rock’ On Cassette

According to Japandroids' Facebook, this Vancouver garage rock duo's current location is in "your sister's bedroom." We know for a fact this is false, because ever since the pair released their hard-hitting and animated album Celebration Rock, last May, they have been touring like mad.

To kick off the album's release, they went on an extensive summer tour, then they dropped an entertaining video for "The House That Heaven Built"—for at-home insight into their live shows—and beginning today, in Dallas, the duo embarks on a lengthy international tour, alongside some of FILTER's other favorite musicians at the moment: Mac Demarco, DIIV, and Bleached

Good news for all you cassette collectors out there: Joyful Noise made 500 copies of Celebration Rock on black cassettes. Head over to Joyful Noise to purchase your copy now! You'll also receive a digital download of the LP.
