Vancouver’s JAPANDROIDS released their 3rd record back at the beginning of 2017. Near To The Wild Heart of Life is an incredible eight song front-to-backer with a more than a few standout tracks. One of those great songs is “North East South West.” Today the band shared a music video for the song. They said in a press release,
“Our first and only previous music video, for “The House That Heaven Built,” was originally designed simply to document one week in the life of Japandroids on tour in America. But as time went by, it inadvertently became not only the best visual document of Japandroids in 2012, but of the whole Celebration Rock era. Directed by Jim Larson, it captured all the action of the road, and offered a brief glimpse into the lives we led for nearly two straight years.
Conceived as a sequel, this video, very appropriately for “North East South West,” documents another week in the life of Japandroids on tour, this time in Europe. Filmed primarily in Spain, Italy, and Portugal, Jim Larson returns to the road to capture what has changed in the preceding years (and what hasn’t).”
The band will be at Cal Jam 17 in San Bernardino on October 7th with Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood and ton of other rock bands.
JAPANDROIDS also have some shows with Cloud Nothings crossing Canada.
