New singles series from Japandroids
The duo known as Japandroids has announced they will be releasing a five-part series of 7" singles throughout 2010 on Polyvinyl Records. Each limited edition 7" will feature a previously unreleased track from the 'Post Nothing' sessions alongside a cover. Japandroids devised the 7" series as a way to give something back to their fans while the band is in the midst of heavy touring and unable to record a full album. Each two-song 7" will be recorded during the brief period of time the band is at home between tours. First up, released on April 12th is 'Art Czars'. The clear coloured vinyl will also feature 'Racer-X' - a Big Black cover and live favourite.
They've also added some tour dates in May, further to their short UK tour that begins in Brighton on Monday (22nd Feb):
Monday 17th May - DiScover @ The Harley, Sheffield
Tuesday 18th May - Jericho, Oxford
Wednesday 19th May - Joiners, Southampton
Thursday 20th May - The Garage, London
