It’s been a crazy last year-and-a-half for the Vancouver noise rockers Japandroids. Not only did they release the wonderful Post-Nothing, but not they can sing all their songs live and are playing Bonnaroo this June. How many of us can say that?

Anyhow, the duo of Brian King and David Prowse are now gearing up for their next venture. Per Pitchfork, the band will be releasing a series of 7″ singles (five to be exact) throughout 2010. Each will include one new song (along with one cover) and each will be limited to 2,000 copies. Digital downloads not included of course.

The first of these is due out April 13th via Polyvinyl. The new song is titled “Art Czars”, while the cover sees the band remembering Big Black’s 1984 track “Racer X”. You can stream the former below, as well as all upcoming tour dates. Pre-orders are now ongoing.
