Preview: Japandroids To Release Series of Singles Preview: Japandroids To Release Series of Singles

Mom always said that you don’t get a second chance at first impressions. The Japandroids high energy debut Post Nothing was Pinpoint’s top album of 2009. It was a charged release that reminded us that with all the syth pop out there, that some bands still feel comfortable letting their music hang out raw for the world to see. That’s a big part of what’s endearing about the Japandroids.
Now there is news out of the Japandroid camp that the band will be releasing a series of five 7″ singles that will each contain one B Side from Post Nothing coupled with a cover song. The first 7″ is due out April 13th (pre order here) and contains the track “Art Czars” (listen below). Also in true Japandroid fashion they are going to tour the shit out of 2010; dates are below.
