Vancouver rockers Japandroids plan to tour North America in support of their forthcoming release, Heavenward Grand Prix.
Heavenward comes as the third part in a quintet of 7”s the group aims to release throughout the year. Although it doesn’t officially drop until Nov. 16, you can pre-order it via Polyvinyl.
The clear-vinyl single includes the title track and a cover of PJ Harvey’s “Shame,” and it comes with an MP3 download. But you better hurry: Heavenward’s limited to 2000 pressings.
