Vancouver duo Japandroids have announced that they will be releasing their first-ever live album, which was record at Massey Hall. The title of the album is Massey Fucking Hall and will be out June 19th digitally, and on vinyl on October 2nd. The album spans material from all three of their records.
“We never thought we’d have the opportunity to play at Massey Hall,” drummer David Prowse explains. “Honestly, when we got off the stage that night, I remember feeling a sense of relief and exhilaration, but the whole thing felt like a bit of a blur. It was a very emotional show for me. We were both pretty nervous getting up on that stage.”
The BC rockers also hoped this would allow their audience to see into the world of live music again through the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
