Japandroids are taking their excellent sophomore album Near To The Wild Heart Of Life on the road. And they’re bringing along Life Without Sound rockers Cloud Nothings for their North American tour dates. That’s good enough news on its own, but to celebrate the occasion the Canadian duo revealed that they’re releasing a 7″ with the standout Life track “North East South West” on the A-side and a cover of Dead Moon’s “Fire In The Western World.” The cover won’t hit streaming services for another week, but “North” is available to listen to up top if you’re on the fence about picking it up here.

Check out their tour dates below and revisit our interviews with Japandroids’ Brian King and Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi.
