About 'Celebration Rock'

Japandroids released their long awaited follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2009 debut Post-Nothing, Celebration Rock, in summer 2012 in the UK. The album was produced by Jesse Gander at Hive Creative Labs and Japandroids and has been called "one of the year's most thrilling rock records" by Rolling Stone. International critics have unanimously agreed with that, as evidenced below by glowing reviews on Drowned in Sound and Stereogum. The album was shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Prize in Canada and received many album of the year plaudits including Rolling Stone Top 10 Albums of the Year. Plus Japandroids were crowned Band Of The Year by SPIN and House That Heaven Built was voted no 1 Song of 2012 by Paste.
