Following on from their current tour of Asia and Australia on top of touring the world throughout 2012 in support of the much-lauded album 'Celebration Rock', Vancouver duo Japandroids will be returning to the UK and Europe for a full tour supporting punk rockers The Gaslight Anthem.
All kicks off on the 21st March at Bristol Academy, taking in two dates at London's Troxy at the end of the month before blazing onto Europe in April. All the full tour dates below.
Japandroids released their long awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2009 debut 'Post-Nothing', 'Celebration Rock', in summer 2012 in the UK.
The album was produced by Jesse Gander at Hive Creative Labs and Japandroids and has been called "one of the year's most thrilling rock records" by Rolling Stone. International critics have unanimously agreed with that, as evidenced below by glowing reviews on Drowned in Sound and Stereogum.
The album was shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize in Canada and received many album of the year plaudits including Rolling Stone Top 10 Albums of the Year.
