By Gregory AdamsA few weeks back, Vancouver alt-fuzz duo Japandroids finally announced that their sophomore disc, Celebration Rock, would arrive in early June, but it turns out the act will deliver the album even earlier in their mother country. News has come from the band that Canadian fans can grab the set May 29 through Polyvinyl, a week earlier than the U.S. release of June 5.
As previously reported, Japandroids are heading out on the road mid-month to tout the new tunes across the UK, with North American dates taking place June to July. One slight change has been made to the schedule, though. The group, as well as tourmate Cadence Weapon, will no longer be playing Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern on June 23. Instead, they'll step onstage at Lee's Palace. You can check the details down below.
