Japandroids Release New Video For "North East South West"

Japandroids have unveiled a new video for their song “North East South West” off their critically heralded Anti- release Near To The Wild Heart of Life.

Japandroids said, “Our first and only previous music video, for “The House That Heaven Built,” was originally designed simply to document one week in the life of Japandroids on tour in America. But as time went by, it inadvertently became not only the best visual document of Japandroids in 2012, but of the whole Celebration Rock era. Directed by Jim Larson, it captured all the action of the road, and offered a brief glimpse into the lives we led for nearly two straight years. 

Conceived as a sequel, this video, very appropriately for “North East South West,” documents another week in the life of Japandroids on tour, this time in Europe. Filmed primarily in Spain, Italy, and Portugal, Jim Larson returns to the road to capture what has changed in the preceding years (and what hasn’t).”

On their latest release Near To The Wild Heart Of Life, Japandroids deliver a vital burst of poetic rock and roll. The Ringer called the record “one of the best pure rock ’n’ roll albums of the decade,” while Entertainment Weekly raved “the Vancouver duo sounds positively born to run. Near to the Wild Heart of Life marks a huge leap forward in studio craft, stylistic diversity, and lyrical scope as it crosses the gap between punk and classic rock like the Clash’s London Calling or Green Day’s American Idiot.”

Japandroids are heading back on road next month for a series of North American live dates.
