Joyce Manor Premieres New Track, Schley, Via Spin.com

Joyce Manor recently shared their new track Schley at SPIN.com.

The band will release their new album Never Hungover Again on July 22 via Epitaph Records.

Never Hungover Again is the rare sort of album that defines a young band. Across their previous two releases (a self-titled release and Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired), Joyce Manor discovered their signature sound. They take the speed and sense of melody of fellow South Bay band the Descendents, the artfully bittersweet lyricism of Jawbreaker and the undeniable heart-on-sleeve honesty of the first two Weezer albums.

The new album was recorded at the end of 2013 with producer Joe Reinhardt at the Lair in Hollywood and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83 and Phoenix). Never Hungover Again captures a complex feeling in 10 precise songs that is part sadness, part loneliness and part anger even when things seem to be going okay. Grantland says the album is “…perfect summer music” and that “…the world needs this album now.” According to Noisey, Never Hungover Again “….will most definitely rule incalculably hard.” With some of the saddest lyrics you’d ever shout along to from the front row, Never Hungover Again is heartbroken pop-punk perfection.

Fans can pre-order Never Hungover Again at the Joyce Manor store. Joyce Manor will play a hometown record release show on July 25 at the El Rey in Los Angeles, several festivals this summer (including FYF in Los Angeles), in addition to a short run with Brand New. Joyce Manor will embark on a headline tour this fall in support of the album.

Joyce Manor Announce Headline Tour

Los Angeles pop-punk outfit Joyce Manor has announced a US headlining tour in support of the new album Never Hungover Again which is out on July 22 on Epitaph Records. Joyce Manor will play FYF Fest in LA as well as supporting select dates with Brand New. Their new single Catalina Fight Song is available on iTunes now.

Joyce Manor was conceived in the back of a car over a cheap bottle of booze in the Disneyland parking lot – the kind of beginning that California dreams are really made of. In 2011, Joyce Manor’s self-titled debut was impactful with its standout anthem Constant Headache. Lauded favourite, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, was released in 2012 on Asian Man. Joyce Manor has earned cult status within the punk community and Never Hungover Again is the album that will satisfy those who have waited. It’s the speed and sense of melody of the Descendents, the bittersweet lyricism of Jawbreaker and the heart-on-sleeve honesty of blue-album Weezer. It’s the rare sort of album that redefines a young band.

Never Hungover Again was recorded at the end of 2013 with producer Joe Reinhardt at the Lair in Hollywood and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83, and Phoenix). Never Hungover Again captures a complex feeling in 10 precise songs that is part sadness, part loneliness, part anger even when things seem to be going okay.

Joyce Manor To Release New Album, Never Hungover Again

Hailing from the South Bay in Los Angeles, pop-punk outfit Joyce Manor will release their new album Never Hungover Again on July 22 via Epitaph Records.

Noisey recently premiered the video for Catalina Fight Song in which the band takes a lesson in jiu-jitsu. Never Hungover Again is available for pre-order at kingsroadmerch.com.

Joyce Manor was conceived in the back of a car over a cheap bottle of booze in the Disneyland parking lot – the kind of beginning that California dreams are really made of. Co-founders Barry Johnson (guitar, vocals) and Chase Knobbe (guitar) started a power violence band named after an apartment complex that Johnson would walk by every day. Caught off guard, Joyce Manor was invited to play a show so they scrambled to scheme a plan. Joyce Manor made their debut as an acoustic duo but soon discovered that “playing loud is just more fun” according to Johnson. They rallied Kurt Walcher to play drums and welcomed old buddy Matt Ebert on bass. The new Joyce Manor attacked their songs with enthusiasm, neurotic precision and discovered beauty in simplicity along the way.

In 2011, Joyce Manor’s self-titled debut was impactful with its standout anthem Constant Headache. Lauded favourite, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, was released in 2012 on Asian Man. Joyce Manor has earned cult status within the punk community and Never Hungover Again is the album that will satisfy those who have waited. It’s the speed and sense of melody of the Descendents, the bittersweet lyricism of Jawbreaker and the heart-on-sleeve honesty of blue-album Weezer. It’s the rare sort of album that redefines a young band.

Never Hungover Again was recorded at the end of 2013 with producer Joe Reinhardt at the Lair in Hollywood and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (Supergrass, Belle and Sebastian, M83 and Phoenix). Never Hungover Again captures a complex feeling in 10 precise songs that is part sadness, part loneliness, part anger even when things seem to be going okay. With some of the saddest lyrics you’d ever shout along to from the front row, Never Hungover Again is heartbroken pop-punk perfection.

Joyce Manor will tour later this year in support of the release with details forthcoming.
