Vancouver duo play four UK shows in October following summer festival slots; watch video for 'The House That Heaven Built' below

Anthemic indie (the good kind) duo Japandroids are embarking on a lengthy tour this month, which makes a few stops in the UK and Ireland.

Their recent Celebration Rock LP contained the kind of affirmative, Gaslight Anthem-esque rock that makes you feel a little wistful for your teenage years, and accordingly got the Quietus thumbs-up.

Here are the dates, and have a watch of the band's recently released video for their single 'The House That Heaven Built' below:

AUGUST
Thu 16 - Workmans' Club, Dublin
Fri 17 - Mandela Hall, Belfast
Sat 18 - Beacons Festival, Skipton
Sun 19 - Summer Sundae Festival, Leicester

OCTOBER
Fri 26 - Heaven, London
Sat 27 - Sound Control, Manchester
Mon 29 - The Harley, Sheffield
Tue 30 - Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
