Japandroids announce extensive North American tour, premiere first-ever video

Japandroids have announced an extensive North American tour, kicking off Nov. 4 at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas. The band also released its first video ever today, for the track “The House That Heaven Built” off the band’s excellent Celebration Rock. In the clip—which appears to have been shot on tour—the band plays live, drinks beers in its van, cooks out, loads gear, gets shirtless, and shoots guns.
