New album announced for next year, no release date yet though
Woo! Can’t wait for this. Was gutted I missed out on tickets for the Birthdays show.
Nice, I loved Celebration Rock.
That headline had me prepared for disaster but quite liked the single on first listen.
Only about 1:40 into this and I love it
This didn’t immediately click with me - the cleaner vocals, the weirdly ‘produced’ feel to the backing chant - but I just listened four times in a row and am coming to the conclusion that it’s an absolute monster.
V excited for the album - is it churlish to wish it was longer than eight tracks?
On first listen, the new single sounds great, can’t wait to hear more from the album

Mmm, I prefer the eponymous song. I found this one a bit boring, I hope my feeling will change
It’s the same formula as before but they sound tired. Still like it though.
Nowhere near as good as the last single but yeah, I still like it. Don’t think there is a Japandroids song I don’t like. All their songs have an immediacy with me - I usually want to repeat them straight after my first listen.
It’s always the same formula with them but that’s not a criticism, it would be kind of weird if they deviated from it. I’m not really looking to them to reinvent themselves (same with bands like, I dunno, Joyce Manor).
This is beautiful, love the overlapping vocals
Yep - love the new single. It’s a grower, and the ending ‘no known drink, no known drugs could ever hold a candle to your love’ is absolutely spot on Japandroids romance nostalgia. Exactly what I like from them - really wish the album was out NOW.

WOAH OH OH OH OH
It’s making me smile big time. Love it.
True Love And The Free Life Of Will is making me tear up a bit. What’s wrong with me.
I think there’d be something wrong with you if it didn’t move you. Done with myfirst listen and it’s all so so good.
