Celebration Rock, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Post-Nothing, was recorded at The Hive,
the same Vancouver studio as Post-Nothing, with engineer Jesse Gander.
Japandroids kept the ground rules they’ve always had for recording: no double-tracking guitars
and no overdubs unless they’re absolutely necessary. The raw energy captured on Celebration
Rock is well-balanced with a much bigger sound and showcases the band’s growth as songwriters.
Songs like “Evil’s Sway” and “The House That Heaven Built” prove the Vancouver duo has more than
staying power with this sophomore release.
