"The success of 'Post-Nothing' has made us be able to tour longer than what we thought was possible," guitarist Brian King tells Spinner. "We get asked about the last record and it became apparent that we weren't going to stop touring until September or October, so we were just thinking about how to put something out that was actually doable for us."
King says the material will basically stem from 'Post-Nothing' outtakes -- the band has a handful of songs that were either written and never recorded, or they were recorded and just didn't make it to the record. They plan to hit the studio in short spurts in between tours.
"We thought they were good," he says of the tunes. "They're still Japandroids songs, but that way there's still some stuff trickling out over the year." Details are still being ironed out, but King says that a package deal is being worked out with Polyvinyl, where you can just get each one shipped to you as they're done. "In a way, we're kind of making it up as we go along."
Expect the first 7-inch to feature a song called 'Art Czars,' which they've been playing live for awhile, with Big Black's 'Racer X' on the B-Side. They hope to have the second one recorded by SXSW and work those two new songs into the set as well. In the meantime, go-getters can preorder the first 7" at Polyvinyl's website for a measly $5.
