At their awesome NYC show on Saturday, Japandroids said we'd be hearing the first single off their highly-anticipated third album this week. That hasn't come yet, but we did just get the album's official announcement! It's called Near To The Wild Heart Of Life and coming in 2017. It'll be their first for ANTI- Records, meaning they are now labelmates with Deafheaven, Title Fight, Wilco, and The Antlers.

Here's a trailer for the album, which reveals this album will have guitar feedback and drums:
