Japandroids began their first tour in three years in their hometown of Vancouver last night (10/5) at The Cobalt. It was their first of four consecutive shows at the venue. Before announcing the tour, Japandroids posted some in-studio pictures, and now it feels like we're one more step closer to a new album because... they played some new songs last night! They didn't stick to 100% to the written setlist, but here it is, four new songs included, followed by a video of one of the new songs:

That makes this tour even more exciting. As mentioned, it lands in NYC for two sold-out shows at Knitting Factory Brooklyn on October 28 & 29 with recently-added support from Greys. Updated dates are listed below.

Here are a few more pics and videos from last night:
