Japandroids played their first show in three years last night at the start of their four-night hometown residency at Cobalt in Vancouver, and they performed a few new tracks that will presumably be included on an upcoming follow-up to 2012’s Celebration Rock. According to a setlist circulating, they played five new songs: “Arc Of Bar,” “Near To The Wild Heart,” “True Love…,” “Midnight To Morning,” and “No Known Drink Or Drug.” Videos of all of them have not surfaced yet, but you can watch a short clip of them opening with “Arc Of Bar” below.
