Japandroids announce UK tour and album



Japandroids visit the UK to showcase a brand new album and Getintothis’ Matt Yarwood has the details.

To support the release of their third long player, this years hotly anticipated Near to the Wild Heart of Life, Japandroids return to the UK for a run of gigs that includes a visit to Manchester’s Gorilla, as well as shows in London, Glasgow and Leeds.

With two critically acclaimed albums already under their belts, excitement around the Vancouver outfit’s latest offering has been considerable, with many pundits and fans all citing the album as one of the year’s most eagerly  awaited.
