Japandroids announce reissue compilation ‘No Singles’‏

Not ones to rest on their laurels, Japandroids have announced they will be re-releasing their two out-of-print EPs as a reissue compilation through Polyvinyl Records on May 11th. Entitled ‘No Singles’, the ten tracks have been remastered by John Golden (Melvins, Nirvana) and will be available on gatefold 180 gram vinyl, CD – both of which will include a 32 page booklet – and digital download. The tracklisting is as follows:

1. Darkness on the Edge of Gastown, 2. No Allegiance to the Queen, 3. Sexual Aerosol, 4. Lovers/Strangers, 5. Lucifer’s Symphony, 6. Couture Suicide, 7. Avant Sleepwalk, 8. Coma Complacency, 9. To Hell with Good Intentions, 10. Press Corps

Additionally Japandroids will be releasing a five-part series of 7″ singles throughout 2010 on Polyvinyl Records. Each limited edition 7″ will feature a previously unreleased track from the ‘Post Nothing’ sessions alongside a cover. Japandroids devised the 7″ series as a way to give something back to their fans while the band is in the midst of heavy touring and unable to record a full album. Each two-song 7″ will be recorded during the brief period of time the band is at home between tours.

First up, released on April 12th is ‘Art Czars’, the clear coloured vinyl will also feature ‘Racer-X’ – a Big Black cover and live favourite. You can preorder it here plus it will also be available for digital download: http://www.polyvinylrecords.com/store/index.php?id=1002

After a string of triumphant debut shows in the UK last year, which saw the two-piece bring their explosive live act to packed out audiences, Japandroids have confirmed they will return to Europe for a string of UK shows in May including an appearance at The Great Escape Festival. Having sold out London’s ICA, 6 weeks in advance of their headline show last month, Japandroids will be playing The Garage when they return in May.

Monday 17th May – DiScover @ The Harley, Sheffield
