Massey Hall presents
Brian King and David Prowse formed Japandroids in 2006, promoting their own DIY shows and self-releasing two EPs (later becoming 2010's No Singles).
Since then their albums Post-Nothing (2009), Celebration Rock (2012) and the new release Near To The Wild Heart Of Life (2017) have earned international acclaim, a JUNO-Award nomination, spot on the Polaris Music Prize long list, best of lists and a Band of The Year nod from Spin. They have played countless shows and toured 40+ countries. Known for their energetic gigs and relentless touring schedule we are thrilled that Japandroids will be performing as part of the Live at Massey Hall Film and Concert Series.
"In 2011, we recorded our second album, and in spite of its imperfections, felt like we had finally captured whatever it was that we'd long been chasing. Since then, we've been in search of a new strategy. If Celebration Rock was the culmination of something, then Near To The Wild Heart Of Life can be considered the beginning of something else."
