Info

Japandroids are a Canadian rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia, consisting of Brian King (guitar, vocals) and David Prowse (drums, vocals).[1]

Formed in 2006, the band rose to prominence following the release of their debut album Post-Nothing (2009). Their second album, Celebration Rock (2012), was released to widespread critical acclaim,[2] with Rolling Stone listing it as one of "The 10 Coolest Summer Albums of All Time", and Spin naming them 2012's Band of the Year.[3][4] Japandroids toured heavily in support of both albums, gaining notoriety for their live performances[5][6] and extensive international concert tours.[7] Between 2009 and 2013, the band performed approximately 500 shows in 44 countries.[8]

Japandroids' music has been described as "one part classic rock, one part punk",[9] due to their blending of classic rock influences such as Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, with punk rock influences such as the Replacements and Hüsker Dü.[10][11][12][13]
