It has been over three years since they released the stellar Post-Nothing, but the Canadian noise-rock duo Japandroids are finally back, out of the studio and gearing up for the release of their second LP Celebration Rock, due out in June. By the sounds of the first single, “The House That Heaven Built,” the rockers haven’t lost any of their sloppy garage spunk or to-the-point pop song craftsmanship. With some crowd chants thrown in alongside a heavily-thrashed drum kit and the usual drone of guitar, it seems the pair are ready to rouse some crowds into raucous rebellion on tour this spring and summer. But you don’t have to wait for the mosh pit; jump around to this track immediately.
