Japandroids Unveil "Younger Us" Single

Japandroids Unveil "Younger Us" Single
When last we checked in with Vancouver, BC fuzz punks Japandroids, they promised us that in lieu of a second LP, the band would release a seven-inch series, with five limited-edition seven-inch singles coming out this year while they tour. We now know the second instalment in the series is "Younger Us" and is set for release next month.

The single will drop July 20 via the duo's label home, Polyvinyl. In the tradition of backing each single with a cover, "Younger Us" will feature a B-side cover of X's L.A. punk classic "Sex and Dying in High Society."

Like the first single in the series, "Art Czars," "Younger Us" will be pressed on clear vinyl, and will be available as a digital download. The single is available for pre-order here from Polyvinyl, who advertise the single as having 2,500 copies. "Art Czars" was printed in a run of 2,000.

Japandroids are currently touring the shit out of North America and Europe, and will hit festivals in Toronto, Guelph, ON and Montreal before touring the West coast extensively starting September 28 in Nelson, BC.
