Noise rock duo Japandroids have taken their time in following up their breakthrough album, 2009’s Post-Nothing, which is especially surprising given the disposable DIY nature of their kind of music. But, with their releases so far Japandroids have shown that they’re a step ahead of most of the pack.

Which is why it’s great news that in an interview with Pitchfork today they have revealed some details about their next album. The Canadians revealed that they’ve titled the album Celebration Rock (which seems like a perfectly apt title for their brand of music) and should be coming out some time in June through Polyvinyl.

The album, like Post-Nothing, will be eight tracks long, including a cover of “For The Love of Ivy,” originally by The Gun Club, and “Younger Us,” which has been previously released as a single.

Guitarist Brian King describes how they tried to capture their live energy on the new tracks by “[trying] to simulate the sound of what we thought the crowd would do during the songs.”

A new song from the album should debut by the end of the month. We’ll keep you up to date with new information as it occurs. For now check out the rest of the interview at Pitchfork.
