Rock worth celebrating for.

The wait is over.

Japandroids have delivered new music with the release of “Near to the Wild Heart of Life,” the first single and title track from their follow-up to 2012’s Celebration Rock.

Anti- records lists January 27 as the release date for Near to the Wild Heart of Life. The countdown is on. Here’s your first listen for the highly anticipated record’s first single.

Band members Brian King and David Prowse paid a visit to Indie88’s studio and talked about the new record and the downtime required to come back with their best effort after touring Celebration Rock extensively.
