On January 27, Japandroids return with new album Near to the Wild Heart of Life. Anti- is handling the release. Back in October, the band shared the album's first single and title track. Despite a long four-year gap since their last album, Celebration Rock, "Wild Heart of Life" proved that the 'droids hadn't lost an ounce of their immediacy.
With the album’s street date nearing, the band has shared another track, "No Known Drink or Drug". And yeah, it has some synths. Not Metric synths, but a little bit of well-placed twinkle to balance out Brian King’s ever-wordier angst. This is Japandroids as we've always known them, but with a little twist.
